Assessment Pattern

A mark will be calculated from the Industrial Supervisor’s assessment at each visit. In the case of “with Language” students approximately 15% of the mark for the second assessment only will be attributed to the student’s competence in using the foreign language as a means of communication at work. The whole will be moderated by the Visiting Tutor – either through discussion leading to an agreed mark or by the subsequent application of a multiplying factor between 0.8 and 1.2. The aggregate will be formed by weighting the first and second assessments 2 and 3 respectively. A further moderation may be carried out by the Professional Training Panel, in order to ensure consistency of standards between placements.

Module Overview
A Tutor from the University will visit at the start of the placement and after about 6 months. It is expected that the work and the performance of the student will be reviewed and discussed by the Student, the Industrial Supervisor and the Visiting Tutor (the precise organisation of the meetings is a matter for local practice, but each of the parties must be involved at some stage). The Industrial Supervisor will be asked to complete an Assessment Form (examples appended) appropriate to the Visit.

90 credits at level 2, unless the Student Progress and Assessment Board allows a student to progress with 80 credits.
