How will I be assessed?
Assessment is integral in all units to check that you have met the threshold standards expected to pass each unit. They are also linked to learning, and are designed to develop and assess key subject specific and transferable skills for future employment. The requirements of each assessment will be detailed in a formal assessment brief document and discussed in teaching sessions. Formative assessment activities including preparation for the end-of-unit examinations are integral to the unit delivery to support student learning and development. The assessment tasks will include: End of unit examination (unseen written examinations); Laboratory reports Analytical assignments Problem / case study-based learning, with written reports or poster presentation of findings; Record keeping and reflection through laboratory notebook / research diary; Literature review; Enterprise proposal; Oral presentation. The Field’s commitment to practical skills and the ability to communicate and interpret data through scientific report writing is emphasised at all levels of the programme. As such, practical (laboratory) reports form a significant proportion of your assessment. Assessment throughout the later units, most notably in the Level 6 Research Project, will call upon you to develop abstract writing and journal review skills to promote critical thinking and integration of knowledge across the course units. The importance of oral communication skills is also acknowledged, as some units in Level 5 of the award require all students to undertake oral presentations as a part of the unit assessments. This is then continued in Level 6 units.
