Admissions

 

Assessment (general): The way in which you are assessed will vary according to the Learning Objectives of each module. Some modules are assessed solely through project work or written assignments. Some are assessed through a combination of coursework and end of semester examinations, while assessment of others may include a presentation or submission of a portfolio. School-based work is assessed through observation by College tutors with an input from school staff. Details of how each module is assessed are shown in course handbooks which are provided to all students at the start of the year.

Feedback (general): As you progress through your course you will receive general and specific feedback about your work from a variety of sources including lecturers, module co ordinators, school experience tutors, personal tutors, advisers of study and your peers. As a university-level student, you will be expected to take a greater role in reflecting on this and taking the initiative in continuously improving the quality of your work. Feedback may be provided to you in a variety of forms including:

  • Formal written comments and marks relating to work that you, as an individual or as part of a group, have submitted.
  • Face to face comment. This may include occasions when you make use of the lecturers’ advertised “office hours” to help you to address a specific query.
  • Comments or advice from staff in schools in which you are placed.
  • Online or emailed comment.
  • General comments or question and answer opportunities at the end of a lecture, seminar or tutorial.
  • Pre-submission advice regarding the standards you should aim for and common pitfalls to avoid. In some instances, this may be provided in the form of model answers or exemplars which you can review in your own time.
  • Feedback and outcomes from workshops and practical classes.
  • Comment and guidance provided by staff from specialist support services, such as the Writing Centre.

Once you have reviewed your feedback, you are encouraged to identify and implement improvements to the quality of your work.
