1st Attempt: Written assessment of 3,000 words (100%). Part A and Part B must be completed successfully.
Students are required to collaborate online and give formative feedback within their action learning sets. Tutors also give written formative feedback on Part A of the course assessment before students undertake part B.
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 can highlight strengths and gives clear guidelines for improvement. Face to face or telephone tutorials can be arranged for students who require additional support.
