Assessment

After each graded and ungraded unit there will be an assignment which needs to be completed and submitted online to your assessor for marking. You'll find 'assessment planners' included within the course materials for each unit; these are designed to help you to complete the relevant assignment. Your assessor will be responsible for marking your assignments and giving you with feedback about the work you've produced, and how you can improve.

The assignments contain one or a combinations of 2 tasks that you need to complete. As an example this could be any combination of a short series of questions, an essay, an academic report or a presentation. Learners must work their way through their ungraded and graded course units and attempt to get as many “Distinction” credits as possible. These are important as a minimum amount maybe specified in your university degree entrance criteria.

This method of continual assessment ensures that your assessor can consistently monitor your progress and provide you with assistance throughout the duration of the course. You should allow at least 1 - 2 hours of study to complete each question paper. The approximate amount of time required to complete the course is 360 hrs.
