(i) Assessment component - essays, presentations, group work activities, projects or other
assessments (commonly termed coursework), and seen or unseen examinations. An
assessment component may sometimes take the form of a number of smaller
submissions or elements e.g. lab reports or short in-class tests. The mark for each
assessment component is recorded in the student record system with the appropriate
weighting, and these are used to calculate the overall module mark.
(ii) Assessment criteria - the requirements of an assessment, identified through specific
learning outcomes, used when marking a student's work. They are a useful guide to the
student to indicate the expected content or approach for an assessment.
