Outcomes of assessment The MBA operates a numerical marking scheme under which the following grades can be achieved within a module: Distinction - (70 and above) Pass - (50 - 69) Refer - (30 - 49) Fail - (Below 30) Students are normally required to achieve the pass threshold in each assessment task. Reflective Statements on personal learning are assessed as pass, refer or fail. Action learning Action learning is becoming increasingly popular in both private and public sectors as a vehicle for management and organisational development. Action learning involves small groups of 6 or 7 managers working together over the year. Members of each action learning set make a commitment to support each other in finding solutions to workplace problems and developing as managers. The action learning set has been likened to having a personal think tank. MBA course members have the option to join such an action learning set and the majority take advantage of this opportunity to add value to their learning.
