They are used to assist students in their learning by preparing them for summative assessments and providing them with feedback which identifies strengths and areas for development.’
Summative assessment is defined in the Foundation Degree Regulations as ‘Assessments which contribute marks used to determine a student’s ability to progress from one stage of a programme to the next, and which are used to determine an overall award classification, are referred to for the purpose of these Regulations as summative assessments.’

|Modules for which this module is a pre- requisite||
|Identify any Professional, Statutory or Regulatory Body requirements:||Not Applicable|
Assessments have been clearly structured and presented to support you however if you are unclear about what is required you need to make arrangements to speak to the module leader as soon as possible to seek clarification. It is important that you read the assessment guidelines and assessment criteria in detail and use them to structure your work. The content of the assignment should provide evidence that you have met all the module learning outcomes therefore it is important that you have an understanding of what the learning outcomes mean e.g. explore, define, critically discuss.
To support development of your academic writing skills it may be useful to devise a glossary of terms. That is where you write down words that are new to you with their meaning/definition alongside. This can be added to as you progress through the year and onto the next level of study.
Further information related to assessment can be found in the Course Handbook.
