The assessment strategy for this course is designed in a way that will contribute to student development and will help them achieve their goals and enhance their employability. An essential element of this process is that feedback will be provided in due time so it is integrated in the learning process. When group work is required, the marks given will be individual following the University of Bedfordshire's regulatory scheme. The different kinds of assessment are listed below and in some cases they will be used in combination, making sure however that there are no hidden tasks. In addition to the assessment strategies followed in each Unit, student knowledge and skills will be also formatively assessed through problem solving sessions or case study discussions, in order to ensure that development of their comprehension of the underlying concepts is appropriate to the level of studies and continuously supports the overall student achievement. A full list of how each Unit will be assessed is presented in the previous section. The Universitys Learning Resources provide a `Study Hub where you can improve your assignment grades by accessing free professional support to develop a wide range of relevant and valuable academic skills. Three teams of specialists: Academic Liaison Librarians, Computer Skills Trainers and Professional and Academic Development (PAD) Tutors can help you develop your academic skills and improve your assignment writing and preparation techniques; leading to better grades and enhanced employability. Learn what information you need for your assignments, how to find it and assess if it's relevant and reliable. Then use the techniques you have discovered to manage your time effectively and improve your academic writing style or your presentation skills. You will find a wide range of online guides to help you. These cover key areas for success such as library resources, referencing, academic writing, maths, study skills and how to optimise your use of Microsoft Office products. In addition, there is an `Invicible Library which can provide online help in the following areas: - Unit 1: Getting started - Unit 2: Unpacking the assignment brief - Unit 3: Using different types of information and data - Unit 4: Searching smarter - Unit 5: Gathering information and data - Unit 6: Evaluating information and data - Unit 7: Using information ethically and legally - Unit 8: Putting it all together Unit 9: Managing your time effectively Each unit will help you to develop your skills in locating, using and managing resources for your academic study. There are nine units in total for you to work through at your own pace and you can come back at any time to repeat or refresh. Ideally you should do the tutorials in order, building on your skills and knowledge as you complete each one. However, the package has been designed so that you can dip in and out of each unit as required. You can use this learning package from any Internet-connected PC.
