7. How you'll be assessed

At the University of Winchester validated programmes may adopt a range of means of assessing your learning. An indicative, and not necessarily comprehensive, list of assessment types you might encounter includes essays, portfolios, supervised independent work, presentations, written exams, or practical performances. The University is committed to ensuring that all students have an equal opportunity to achieve module learning outcomes. As such, where appropriate and necessary, students with recognised disabilities may have alternative assignments set that continue to test how successfully they have met the module's learning outcomes. This programme design will implement assessment that focuses on the apprentice's role and working environment. It will be assessed through a comprehensive project based end point assessment within the degree. The use of a range of formative assessments features strongly throughout this programme providing opportunity for feedback on individual performance. A range of formats are adopted for summative assessment. The end point assessment integrates the project outcomes and presentation into a synoptic project assessment and presentation with supporting portfolio of evidence. This will be assessed in partnership with the employer and against the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship standard.
