|Form of assessment||Size of the assessment (eg length / duration)||ILOs assessed||Feedback method|

A summative assessment counts towards your mark for the module. The table below tells you what percentage of your mark will come from which type of assessment.
|Coursework||Written exams||Practical exams|
...and this table provides further details on the summative assessments for this module.
|Form of assessment||% of credit||Size of the assessment (eg length / duration)||ILOs assessed||Feedback method|
|In class translation 1||20||1 hour||1-2 and 4-10||Written comments and marks|

Re-assessment takes place when the summative assessment has not been completed by the original deadline, and the student has been allowed to refer or defer it to a later date (this only happens following certain criteria and is always subject to exam board approval). For obvious reasons, re-assessments cannot be the same as the original assessment and so these alternatives are set. In cases where the form of assessment is the same, the content will nevertheless be different.
|Original form of assessment||Form of re-assessment||ILOs re-assessed||Timescale for re-assessment|
|Written examination||Written examination of 2 hours||1-10||August/September assessment period|
in class tests will not be re-assessed as there are no classes after the module is complete but will only take place through the referred exam of 2 hours
