Assessment will generally need to be tailored to the requirements of the user
institution, and course level. The following are suggestions for assessment
- Students can be asked to utilise the resource and to provide a report /
essay on a general or specific topic. In this manner the course
can also be used for 'distance learning'. A selection of suggested report
/ essay titles is given.
- Presentations at seminars can be assessed on both technical content and
presentation skills. A selection of topics for
short seminars is given.
- A traditional examination can be set. Examples of examination
questions are given.
- 'Practical'-based skills can be assessed by providing images for students
to interpret. A selection of practical images
is provided. Students can use these images and attempt to identify/interpret
them on the basis of text and
illustrations provided on the resource site. Tutors may access answers to
these by clicking on the appropriate images.
