Case Studies

The project developed a series of short two-page and extended case studies as examples of variants of programme focused assessment (see Definitions).

We are looking to update and add to these.

Examples of final, heavily weighted integrative assessment - eg whole year, capstone specific module - or assessment by submission of personal evidence against programme learning outcomes - eg portfolio - are particularly welcomed.
