Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Lectures will cover the theoretical aspects of the module which students will gain valuable practical skills during timetabled lab sessions. LO1 requires the student to search out information from both online and library sources and to plan and complete an essay within the stipulated timeframe.
LOs 2-4 require a degree of critical appraisal and reflection in carrying out the practical assessment and report.

Formative Assessment:
To support formative feedback, the Software Engineering subject group utilise a lab based teaching approach across their provision. During these lab sessions, staff will discuss and evaluate student progress and provide feedback on how well they are progressing with their work. This module provides formative feedback during the first lab assessment. Both courseworks assess all learning outcomes.

Summative Assessment:
Coursework will demonstrate achieving the LOs.
