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 traditional laboratory reports and literature reviews through to practical examinations and video based assessments.
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 formal summative assessment pattern for each year of the course is:
Laboratory reports, practical examinations, online examinations, an anatomy spotter exam, a video based submission, a presentation and an exercise based portfolio.
Online examinations, practical examinations, leaflets designed to inform athletes, a video based submission, a literature review, completion of a research based ethics form, scientific report and a workbook.
Dissertation, practical examination, trauma examination, professional practice and reflective portfolios, business plan, presentations and a skills based competency account.
