Assessment & assessment criteria The aim of assessment is to ensure that effective learning of the individual units has been undertaken. Evidence of this learning is directly linked to the assessment criteria and grade descriptors. This course is 100% coursework assessed. There are no external examinations. For each unit it will be necessary to produce a portfolio of assignments to demonstrate that the grading criteria have been achieved for the unit. These assignments may be: Written assignments Laboratory reports on practical work Tests Role plays Work sheets Project work Presentations Other suitable methods On completion of task, the work is marked and graded by the internal assessor at the College and then subjected to internal verification (IV) process. It is presented to the EE for approval and of marking and the moderation has been fair and reliable. The EE provides the College with a final annual report that is shared within the departmental HE teachers. Any actions and recommendations are noted and an action plan is followed for following academic year. Final grades are agreed by an assessment board in assessment board meeting where learner s coursework and grades are discussed and finalised. The board is comprised of members of the lecturing team, management, a quality representative and an external board verifier is also invited. This is an academic review and following this, grades will be published and will be available to students. This programme complies with the QAA Quality code.
