Formative assessment is built into all modules and is designed to provide you with feedback on progress and inform development. You're expected to maintain appropriate records of your work as it develops within each module, throughout all levels and to take part in regular tutorial, critique and seminar discussions regarding your own and others’ coursework.

Summative assessment provides a measure of achievement made in respect of performance in relation to learning outcomes. On completion of each level, you'll be required to submit a portfolio of your work on each module together with all supporting material.
