14 3. Assessment Strategy Formative assessment Summative assessment - assessment planning - SQA assessment exemplars - centre devised assessments HND Global Trade and Business

15 Assessment Strategy Formative assessment : This is an important part of the learning process. It allows the tutor to identify if the student is understanding the subject, and if there are any knowledge gaps. It also provides the student with feedback on their learning. It will help the tutor to decide if students are ready to attempt summative assessment. HND Global Trade and Business

16 Assessment Strategy Summative assessment: All HND qualifications are summatively assessed using a mix of continuous Unit assessment and Graded Unit assessments Summative assessment is carried out for the purpose of certification, and provides evidence that the student can meet the standards set out in the Unit Specification. HND Global Trade and Business

17 Assessment Strategy Assessment Planning: The planning and timing of assessment is decided by the tutor/assessor. It is good practice to communicate assessment plans to students as early as possible. The Course Tutor Guide provides suggestions on timing of assessment for each unit. HND Global Trade and Business

18 Assessment Strategy SQA Assessment Exemplars: These provide – conditions of assessment assessment tasks marking guidelines/suggested solutions Checklists (where appropriate) HND Global Trade and Business

19 Assessment Strategy It is important that Tutors: Adhere to the conditions of assessment Mark assessments consistently in line with the marking scheme/checklists Keep all Assessment Exemplars secure so that they can be used for future assessment HND Global Trade and Business

20 Assessment Strategy Re-assessment: Where a student does not achieve the standard, they can be re-assessed. In the first place they should be given feedback which advises what they need to do to prepare for re-assessment. HND Global Trade and Business

21 Assessment Strategy Forms of Re-assessment: Provide additional information e.g. a weak or missing section of a report or project For practical tasks such as IT, they may be allowed to correct and re-submit work For multiple choice, short response and Graded Units, they may be required to attempt an new assessment instrument. HND Global Trade and Business Centres may have to produce their own alternative assessments for re-assessment. It is recommended that they are submitted to SQA for Prior Approval.
