8 D. Staff Development Priorities Annual staff development reviews match development to needs. Managers undertake a variety of management development programmes. The Portsmouth lecturers visiting partner centres conduct staff development for partner staff on specific themes; for example project supervision, use of generic grading criteria, plagiarism prevention, dealing with alleged academic misconduct and referencing conventions. Portsmouth lecturers also review the operation of units with partner lecturers on a oneto-one subject specialist level wherever possible during visits to the partner. Such opportunities are incorporated into visit itineraries. Lecturers approved to teach on this collaborative degree are registered as Partner Associate Lecturers (PALS) of the University. This designation enables them to participate in free services and events offered by the Department of Curriculum and Quality Enhancement (DCQE) including online support and guidance. 20. Assessment Strategy All assessments for core units on this programme are considered to provide opportunities for students to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the subject matter relating to the degree programme (PSD Section 10.2 A). Some assessments lend themselves more readily to the development and demonstration of cognitive skills (PSD Section 10.2 B). Others provide evidence of practical, professional and subject specific skills (PSD Section 10.2 C). Most assessments will provide opportunities for students to demonstrate the achievement of transferable and key skills (PSD Section 10.2 D). Consideration of this has been given at each level whilst acknowledging that there is a rising expectation of the development of these skills as the programme progresses. Level five employs a range of assessment methods. Essays provide them with the opportunity to develop the intellectual skills of evaluation, knowledge and analysis. Presentations provide opportunities to develop further collaborative skills, an understanding of group dynamics and an analysis of the individual student s role in that process. Summative assessments are designed to meet both the University guidelines and the requirements of the accrediting professional bodies. At level six students are expected to demonstrate critical thinking and engage analytically with the subject matter. Units such as the Independent Study for Accountants allow students further opportunity for students to develop self management skills required of sustained substantial piece of work. This includes skills of researching, analysing, documenting and evaluating. Other units based on independent study offer similar opportunities. 21. Assessment Regulations Examination and Assessment regulations for Kaplan September Role of Externals Subject External Examiners who will: oversee unit assessment and usually attend Unit Assessment Boards; approve unit assessment strategy; sample assessment artefacts; present report to Unit Assessment Boards.
