The course assessment strategy is closely aligned to the teaching and learning strategy which is designed to have: immediate professional relevance; draw on expertise-by-experience; foster active learning and be leaner-centred in approach.
Assessment tasks are designed so that you can tailor them to your professional interests, experience and development needs. They area also designed so that you can rehearse ways of thinking and acting that are professionally relevant. Assessment tasks are graduated to provide with opportunities to develop your academic literacies and enquiry skills over time.
Assessment is supported in a range of ways including: comprehensive assessment briefs; use of formative assessment techniques (including those embedded within summative assessment tasks); through use of exemplar answers (including those previously submitted by students where possible); through rehearsing approaches to assessment tasks during contact sessions; through scheduled tutorials which focus on academic literacies including literature search, critique and referencing skills. You will receive feedback on submitted work within 15 working days and can discuss your work in scheduled tutorials and/or office time. You will also have to access central support services designed to support the development of study skills and academic writing.
