Assessment by Module

General Procedures

SEAS modules are assessed through a variety of elements including essays, seminar work and exams. Some modules are assessed entirely through an exam at the end of the semester, others combine methods of assessment. Module Outlines should clearly state the method(s) of assessment; if you are unsure about how a module is assessed, you should consult with the relevant Module Organiser.

Principles of Assessment

The University's Learning and Teaching Strategy sets out principles to promote assessment that is fair, valid and reliable. In addition, institution-wide assessment criteria are defined at every level of progression through programmes of study. Full details are available from the University website.
