All assessments are tailored to the modules which they assess. Details about the broad assessment strategy for the modules can be found in the module descriptors on the Course Blackboard pages. Specific details for assessments for each module will be given in the Module Information Pack and on the module pages on blackboard.
Each module contains a formative piece of work which develops towards your final assessment. It is imperative that you use this formative modular work to gauge your progress towards the final assessment and consider whether you can develop the skills needed to give you the grades which you are striving for, or whether you need support with either module content, from the module leader, or academic skills, from your academic advisor.
Additionally each assessment will give you feedback that you should reflect on and about which you should seek clarity from the assessor if you require it. It is only by building on points from your feedback that you can hope to develop throughout your course.
You may wish to use your academic advisor to help you reflect on feedback and plan for development through your course.
All assignment submission details and deadlines are notified through the Module Information Packs on the module pages on Blackboard. Deadlines are usually set at 9am or 5pm – check your Module Information pack for details.
Assessment information should tell you which module learning outcomes are being assessed, what the title/subject of the assessment is, some discussion of the way in which it is expected that you approach the assessment, details for assessment support and details of the marking grid for the assessment.
All assignments should be submitted via Turnitin on the Module Blackboard page, unless the Module Information Pack specifically states otherwise. Electronic submission to a central source allows effective access of your work to the marking team and external examiners and prevents your work from being lost. It is not acceptable to submit by email to the module tutor, and submission in this way may result in your work not being marked.
Turnitin requires the assignment to be submitted as one document including assessment front sheet, references and appendices. If the combining of several sources into one document is challenging to you, you are advised to seek support from the IT trainers well in advance of submission dates.
Unless your Module Information Pack advises differently, written assessed work should be submitted in the following format:.
Additionally where work is to be handed in in hard copy:
Submit the paper copy to the module box in a clear plastic folder (unless indicated otherwise in Module Information Pack.
