Method of Assessment

We offer a varied assessment diet to assess and facilitate learning. Our assessments comply with the University’s overall assessment strategy, which identifies a number of key principles, starting with the principle that assessment should be integral to the learning experience.

Students have the opportunity to undertake a variety of forms of assessment that are appropriate to the level and content of the module, and that allows them to demonstrate that they possess both knowledge of clinical, subject-specific and transferable skills. A range of assessment techniques are employed during the programme that are appropriate to the level of conceptual and skills development, appropriate to the module content, and explicitly mapped onto learning outcomes which are derived from programme aims and programme learning outcomes.

Assessment is coursework based and there are no examinations The type of assessment for each module is designed to allow students to demonstrate both subject knowledge and transferable skills which will be useful on graduation.

Coursework assessments may include: essays, reflections, practical reports, portfolio’s and analysis of transcriptions of supervisory practice. Students are also provided with the opportunity to complete formative activities within the module that will assist them in developing their knowledge and understanding, and support them in the undertaking of their summative assessments. Students are given the assignment specification at the beginning of the module so they are aware of the requirements throughout the module.
