Assessment is undertaken in all units of the course to check that you have met (or are working towards meeting) the threshold standards expected of all students. Each unit of study has three summative assessment points and when each is marked you will be provided with feedback that is designed to show you where you are meeting/exceeding the standards and where/how you can/should make further improvement. The final assessment in each of the taught units is a formal written examination. Elsewhere, a range of assessment methods are used. Some you may be familiar with (e.g. laboratory Academics) while others may be less familiar (e.g. research proposals, poster/oral presentations) but each is designed to build upon and extend what is expected of students with a lower degree. The research project is assessed in three parts: first, the use and maintenance of a project notebook; second, production of a formal project dissertation; and finally, an oral presentation with associated question and answering session.
