Key principles that will underpin assessment activities are based upon current theory and practise. The principle of constructive alignment will underpin all assessments. This will ensure the assessment tasks are aligned with the specific course objectives, the content of the course and the teaching methods employed.
Online learning resources covering all the key background information will be provided for the student to work through at their own pace. Online learning sessions will include small formative assessments where the student will receive instant feedback on their contribution, enabling effective monitoring of progress. .
The summative component consists of the following:
20% short answer questions
30% online discussion
50% analysis of case studies on the area of preventative treatment
This will encourage critical analysis of the course material and subject, and will allow the application of knowledge gained during the module in order to contextualise the material learned.
