Informed, Targeted Teaching Relies on Quality Assessment Practices
Each unit in this course has its own assessment. Wherever possible, the specific focus of assignments is negotiated individually between the unit tutor and the student, within the parameters of the unit, in order to ensure that the assignment meets the personal and professional needs of the student.
The course provides students with a carefully planned and coherent sequence of learning opportunities that facilitate their development through diagnostic, formative and summative assessments. There are six assessments across the two units which are designed to evaluate understanding of theoretical concepts through their application in a practical context. These assessments progress from assessing critical understanding of theory, research, practice and policy at local and national level in the area of difficulties in literacy development and dyslexia, to assessment of individual difficulties and planning of provision, to an audit of institutional policy, provision and practice, and, finally, to the development of some aspect of provision for young people who experience difficulties in literacy development and dyslexia together with critical evaluation of this.
The assessments test the ability to construct a reasoned, sustained and coherent argument, and to articulate it fluently. Students are required to demonstrate an appropriate level of research, of independent argument, and to reference in an appropriate way. They will also provide evidence of knowledge and understanding, allow students the opportunity to express their individual responses to a topic or issue, and to demonstrate research into a given topic.
Through the assessments, students practise and reinforce skills in information technology and information retrieval e.
