The course provides opportunities to assess understanding and learning, both formatively and summatively, across the programme. Each module has one or more formal or ‘summative’ assessments which are graded and count towards the overall module grade.
Assessment methods may typically include:
Formal formative assessments will include presentations and posters. Formal summative assessments will take the form of written assignments, individual presentations and/or poster presentations.
Formal formative assessments will include presentations, critical debates, and/or creation of teaching resource packs. Formal summative assessments will take the form of an individual presentations with justification, a formal critical debate/presentation, written essays, poster presentations and/or an exhibition.
Formal formative assessments will include presentations and/or professional discussions. Formal summative assessment will take the form of written assignments, presentations and a dissertation (independent study).
On school experience, you are formatively assessed against our University of Worcester Curriculum. You will work with school colleagues alongside University tutors to complete reflections and activities in school to support your formative assessment. This will build towards your assessment against the Teachers’ Standards at the end of your course.
Throughout your course, you will be supported to prepare for your transition into your early career teacher years through the Career Entry Profile, as part of your Continuing Professional Development.
