The assessment strategy has been carefully designed to enable students to develop a full range of knowledge, skills and competencies that are key in health and social care. The variety of assessments takes a broad range of factors into account including intended learning outcomes, professional standards in the health and social care industry, student demographics and our pedagogical approach 鈥 with each factor helping to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of the learning experience.

We utilise a strategic and holistic approach to selection and design in our assessment strategy. Essays, reports, presentations, debates and small group projects have been identified as effective means for assessing student development. Where possible, we will use real-life simulations so that students can develop structured arguments through reflection, judgement and targeted evaluation. Students will also research specific areas and formulate objective conclusions 鈥 supported by appropriate referencing. In addition, students will be able to creatively use evidence-based writing skills to apply professional judgement in making recommendations and solving problems for future best practices. All group projects will require measured commitment and input from all members, objectively assessed through peer presentation and review.

Presentations will be performed individually and in groups that address concepts of a particular scenario. These assessments will also include a question-and-answer element.听

Group debates will be conducted around a particular topic or subject area within health and social care. A proposition will be offered and defended within the group context. This will enable students to demonstrate the ability to work effectively with each other, respect inputs from fellow students, effectively present information and prepare persuasive arguments.
