Your college will provide you with student assessment information in the form of a Student Assessment Guide for your course and a Student Assessment Guide for the modules you are studying. Guides are provided at the start of your study and provide assessment information for your course as a whole and for each module. Your teacher will provide additional information on how you will be assessed, what you will be assessed on and when you will be assessed.
As a student it is your responsibility to read the information contained within the Guides and to ensure that you understand the information in them. If you don’t understand or are unsure about what is required please see your teacher. Your teacher will explain the content of the Guides and ask for your signature to indicate that you have received the documents.
Remember your teacher is your most important contact for information on assessment!
