Continuous Assessment The module assessment strategy supports the program assessment strategy by employing a combination of summative and formative assessment techniques that provide feedback and feedforward of learning, for learning and as learning (T&L Forum 2017). Assessment tasks can include skills tests, research projects, problem based projects and exams. Evidence of learning can be provided through presentation of findings, process documentation and interviews. Judgement of learning is based against lecturer developed and/or learner negotiated criteria.
