Classification Guidelines

All forms of assessment on the module are assessed on the basis of module outcomes, as listed in your undergraduate study guide and at the end of this module guide. Performance presentations, however, assess some rather specific skills in addition to knowledge and understanding of the subject-matter. The following classification guidelines are designed to provide you with a guide to the further skills which you are required to demonstrate in the performance presentation, and provide an outline of the standard for each grade.
