1st Attempt: Two 1,500 word written assignments. Part A and Part B must be completed successfully.
Students will receive formative feedback from tutors prior to completing the summative assessment. This will take the form of monitoring the student’s ability to engage with online distance learning.
In keeping with the School of Education policy on assessment, and in sufficient time for students to be able to improve their work through feedback, detailed written feedback on assessment is provided to students (typically within four weeks of submission). Feedback highlights strengths and gives clear guidelines for improvement. Face to face meetings or telephone tutor support can be arranged for students who are not succeeding.
