Teaching Rationale And Relationship
The module will consist of lectures and tutorials which provide the easiest way for students to assimilate the knowledge content and define the scope of each of the syllabus topics (IKO1-3). In the tutorial sessions the students are provided with the opportunity to gain oral feedback from the lecturing staff.
The independent study time is essential for students to work through the lecture material, in their own time and at their own pace (ISO1-3).
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The examination affords students an opportunity to demonstrate knowledge, understanding and possession of subject specific and key skills. The medium also allows students to demonstrate intended learning outcomes across a wide range of topics within a syllabus under time-limited conditions, this being a valuable metric for any subsequent employer.
The unseen exam also affords students an opportunity to demonstrate numeracy and literacy and associated cognitive skills. The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
