The course provides opportunities to test understanding and learning informally through the completion of practice or 'formative' assignments. Each module has one or more formal or 'summative' assessments which are graded and count towards the overall module grade. Assessment methods include written examinations and a range of coursework assessments such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations and a final year independent studies project.
The precise assessment requirements for an individual student in an academic year will vary according to the mandatory and optional modules taken, but a typical summative assessment approach for each year of the course is:
Written essays, paired and/or individual presentations, practical coaching episodes, multiple-choice exams
Pebblepad Coaching Portfolio; essays, presentations, oral defence of work, practical coaching episodes, exams (module selection dependent)
Reflective reports, essays, presentations, portfolios, practical coaching episodes, placement evidence and Independent Study
