|Additional Information (Assessment)
||The course will offer a structured approach for development through individual tutorials and group discussion. The criteria for assessment are aligned with the learning outcomes and course aims.
||Feedback for this course will be provided from tutors in verbal (formative) and written (summative) forms at key points, notably ongoing studio tutorials, mid semester reviews and end of semester assessment. This is aligned with the Universities common feedback structures, including:
Formative Assessment is designed to provide you with feedback on your progress and inform development, but does not contribute to your final grade. Formative assessment allows your tutors to give you feedback prior to undertaking a piece of (summatively) assessed work. Formative assessment aids understanding and development of your knowledge and skills and is intended to promote further improvement in your level of attainment. Some courses have formatively assessed assignments but not all courses have this.
Summative assessment is the process of evaluating (and marking) your work at a point in time. You will receive a grade for each course relative to the programme assessment criteria and individual course objectives. Marks are confirmed by at the end of year Examination Board and are combined to produce a single, numerical mark.
Refer to the ASN Programme Handbook for details of the Common Marking Scheme and grade descriptors.
