|Assessment type||Unit of assessment||Weighting|
|Examination||ONLINE EXAMINATION - SCENARIO-BASED QUESTIONS - 120 MINUTES||100|
Students undertake a mock exam half-way through the module and receive feedback from the module team.
The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their range of knowledge in relation to a disease/complex condition and the impact this has upon a child and family. The use of a scenario enables the student to critically explore the challenges and support needs of the child and family and recognise the biopsychosocial perspective, influence of policy on practice and supporting their critical analysis with a wide range of supporting evidence.
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
- A short answer online examination based upon a scenario, made available to the students prior to the exam. (2 hours)
- The students undertake an online mock exam half way through the module which will be marked by the module team with individual feedback available to each student online. This will be followed by group feedback and discussion (timetabled).
- Students are continuously given feedback through the module and the module leader is available each week after teaching for support or to answer queries. Students are given group and individual feedback for their mock exam. The students undertake real time simulation during the module and are given feedback on performance and areas to address for future practice. After the summative exam, students are given group feedback on each question. Students are actively encouraged throughout the module to access support from the module team/raise any concerns so they can be addressed and resolved quickly.
- This module will inspire the student to explore a range of complex situations, in
order to synthesise ideas or information to generate new ways of working.
