ASSESSMENT

Assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning process.  Assessment within Transition Year is based on ongoing continuous assessment across the programme, encouraging self-directed learning. Assessment is facilitated by a credit system and student portfolio which is a body of work recorded in the journal.

Assessment of Transition Year includes a number of components such as: 

  • core and option subject assessment
  • module assessment
  • work experience evaluation
  • an end of year interview

At the end of the year each student will receive a certificate of participation. The grade of the certificate will be determined by:

  • the student's participation in the year,
  • their discipline and attendance record
  • an individual interview. 

Each student also receives a work experience certificate for each work placement completed.
