Students are introduced to a range of different forms of assessment and will be in accordance with the learning outcomes and will be both formative (e.g. computer-based exercises, non-assessed presentations, class exercises etc) and summative (e.g. unseen and seen examinations, computer-based assessments, essays, practical/field reports, assessed seminar presentations, review and assessment of scientific papers, laboratory skills, project report, work placement report etc). Although employer input is crucial to the success of work-based learning, they are not involved directly in the assessment process.
