The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of both the theoretical concepts and their practical application.
The summative assessment for this module consists of:
A 50 minutes class-test (30%) during the semester (week 7 or 8 of teaching)
A two hour closed-book final exam (70%) during the examination period
Formative assessment and feedback
Formative feedback will be given on a continuous manner during the course of the module. The weekly drop-in session and office hours are used to provide individual formative feedback to students. Students also have the opportunity to sit a mock class test on which feedback is subsequently given.
Formative and summative feedback for the mid-term test will be given in the teaching week following the test. This will enable the students to assess their learning at that stage and to further prepare for their final exam.

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to give students the opportunity to gain knowledge and understanding of the relevant theory and business practices and problems pertinent to the topics covered in the module.
The learning and teaching methods include:
Weekly 2 hour tutorials for students to practice applying the principles. Students will also have the option to attend a further 2 hour drop in session to raise specific questions they have regarding that week’s tutorial.
Support of tutorial material by directed reading and exercises in selected textbooks
SurreyLearn will be used as an information portal and will contain lecture notes, practical exercises, solutions to practical exercises, past exam papers & model answers and relevant reading
In addition, the tutor will be available for individual queries during weekly office hours.
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
