Examination regulations, assessment and grading
Course assessment is continuous, formative and development-oriented. Successful completion of a course requires acceptable performance in its constituent parts in accordance with curricular and implementation plans. Assessment is based on the following grading scale: excellent (5), good (4–3), satisfactory (2–1) and fail (0). Some courses may also be assessed with a pass/fail mark. Assessment criteria are based on descriptions of competence. Students’ self-assessment is relevant to development of professional competence and it is carried out through compiling portfolios. Staff will also have personal discussions with each student about study and career choices and the student will then draw up his or her own individual learning plan based on these discussions.
