Assessment

All assessments will be in accordance with the learning outcomes and the range will provide both formative (non-assessed discussions and presentations, language laboratory work, class exercises etc) and summative (unseen examinations, in-class assessments, essays, portfolios, assessed seminar presentation etc) functions.

In the majority of modules, a combination of assessment types is used to ensure that you are able to demonstrate your theoretical knowledge of and engagement with a topic, but usually also include a more practical element. For example, the assessment for a module may consist of a traditional essay in which you discuss a particular theoretical approach, but also a data analysis exercise which allows you to demonstrate that you are able to apply their knowledge in the 'real world', and to link theory with practice.
