The Assessment Strategy has been designed to support and enhance the development of both subject-based and more general skills, whilst ensuring that the modules learning outcomes are attained, as described below.
The written exam will provide students with an opportunity to demonstrate both their knowledge on a broad range of topics through a series of short essay questions.
Continuous assessment will be provided by the use of 3 x 30 minute online activities embedded in the module. These activities will require UWE login. The module leader will have full access to up-to-date data to monitor progress and marks obtained by students. Feedback at this level will also be provided online and will be by review of the tests after they have been completed and will include the correct answers (after the relevant assessment period has concluded).
The design of these online assessed activities will be varied, for example:
The element will capture the content of online learning and practical workshops delivered in the block weeks. This summative assessment will take the form of a poster presentation.
Formative feedback is available to students throughout the module through group discussions, and in workshops. You are provided with formative feed-forward for your exam through a revision and exam preparation session prior to the exam and through the extensive support materials supplied through Blackboard.
All work is marked in line with the Department's Generic Assessment Criteria and conforms to university policies for the setting, collection, marking and return of your work. Where an individual piece of work has specific assessment criteria, this is supplied to you when the work is set.

Learning and Teaching
You are expected to spend 72 hours on scheduled learning and 228 hours on independent learning. Theoretical material within the module will be presented to the students in the form of regular lectures throughout each of the semesters in the academic year. During those times of work based learning, these lectures will be delivered online and involve a number of technological enhancements. The learning of lecture content will be reinforced through time spent in independent learning by the directed reading of recommended texts and through the use of technology enhanced learning resources that will be provided online.
This online learning and engagement will be delivered through several avenues:
Practical classes will include simulated case-study based investigations which will allow you to develop your analytical, interpretive and data handling skills.
The remainder of the independent learning time allocated to the module should be spent preparing written assessments for submission and undertaking revision for the controlled component.
Scheduled learning includes lectures, seminars, tutorials, project supervision, demonstration, practical classes and workshops; fieldwork; external visits; work based learning; supervised time in studio/workshop.
Independent learning includes hours engaged with essential reading, case study preparation, assignment preparation and completion etc. These sessions constitute an average time per level as indicated in the table below. Scheduled sessions may vary slightly depending on the module choices you make.
