Annual staff appraisalsmatch development to needs. Managers undertake a variety of management development programmes. Portsmouth staff-led development sessions held during visits to Singapore and Hong Kong. 20. Assessment Strategy All assessments on this programme are considered to provide opportunities for students to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the subject matter relating to the degree programme. Some assessments lend themselves more readily to the development and demonstration of cognitive skills. Others provide evidence of practical, professional and subject specific skills. Most assessments will provide opportunities for students to demonstrate the achievement of transferable and key skills. At this level, students are expected to demonstrate critical thinking and engage analytically with the subject matter. An example of this is the 6,000 word dissertation. The dissertation provides an opportunity for students to develop self management skills and includes skills of researching, analysing, documenting and evaluating. At this level, students will be required to demonstrate the higher skills of analysis, synthesis, critical judgement and evaluation along with comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the relevant areas of business. These skills will be assessed through a mixture of coursework, and case studies and essay questions set in time-constrained examinations. The ability of students to engage in independent research will be formally assessed through the Dissertation.Course-work will also act as formative assessment prior to examinations.
