A critical part of delivering high-level coursework online is providing students with a consistent approach to assessment. Students are assessed on how well each of their course learning outcomes are met, in alignment with the overall program learning outcomes.

Course assessments will occur across a seven-week teaching period and are designed to progressively build in weight over time, with each linking back and building on the last.

Examples of common assessments may include group and individual tasks, such as:

  • Quizzes;
  • Case study projects;
  • Research reports;
  • Presentations;
  • Contribution to online discussions; and
  • Collaboration on set tasks or projects.

As many of our students are working full-time and have professional commitments during the week, course assessments are usually due on Sunday or Monday evenings, allowing optimum time over the weekend to finesse for submission.

Rich feedback will be provided to students throughout the teaching period via online forums on practical exercises and by individual consultation.
