Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The pre and post school assignments will provide students with the opportunity to develop and demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the drivers, techniques and technologies behind energy management.
Subject specific, cognitive and communication skills will also be assessed through the assignments. The other key skills will not be assessed but students will need to utilise these skills in order to access the self guided material and prepare assignments.
Reflex only: In order to pass the module, students must attain a minimum of 40 in each component of assessment. Failure to reach 40 in each component will result in a module mark no greater than 49. This rule has been introduced as an accreditation requirement on the Reflex programme.
