Assessment Types

Internal/External Assessment

Assessment is undertaken by a range of assessment tasks. Internal assessment can be due at different times throughout the semester and is managed by the individual lecturer. Formal examinations are managed centrally by the Student Services Division - Assessment and Graduation Office, and are held outside semester times.

Examples of Online Assessment

There are many online tools available that allow the lecturer and the student to check how learning is progressing. Some will provide students with immediate feedback on how well they did, while some will require lecturers to mark and supply feedback. Others may not be assessed directly; however, students can use these to collect evidence to inform work that is being assessed. Some can also allow peer review and/or assessment to take place, either formatively or summatively.
