Assessment overview

Your performance in this course is assessed through two means: your summative learning journal and the performance of your firm. These represent individual and group assessments.

There is no final examination. As all assessment takes place prior to the examination period, this course can seem as if it has a heavier workload than those with an examination.

At the end of the course, you will evaluate the performance of your team members and this will be used to allocate individual team member's share of the team's group grade. Overall, those whom the team see as having contributed the greatest will get a larger share of group grade than those who contribute the least.

You should not underestimate the importance of the peer evaluation process, and the impact it can have on your final grade. It is entirely possible for the team to get a C and for an individual team member to end up with an A+. Likewise a team might get an A+, but an individual team member might get a D.
