Assessment used within this programme is usually formative or summative. Assessments are designed to develop students' ability to practice a wide range of tools and techniques and to see the strategic implications of decisions and problems. These typically take the form of case studies, research and critical evaluation exercises and practical work based reports to resolve problems, develop a purchasing or quality strategy, for example. In some modules students are required to present their research/findings to their lecturer's and peers followed by a question and answer session. Such assessment strategies are utilised by the course team to generate student driven work.
