What is your plan for assessment of your course?

As part of your assignment, you will be asked to describe briefly how you will use assessment to support learners in achieving the Learning Outcomes, and to demonstrate that the Outcomes have been achieved. Your plan should cover formative and summative assessment, and consider how assessment will be linked to feedback.

If it’s relevant to your course context, you may also want to think about credentials. Are your learners going to be required to demonstrate to external stakeholders that they have achieved a certain level? This might be a contribution towards an academic qualification or evidence of CPD.

Use the discussion area to ask questions about assessment planning as part of your assignment.
