Assurance of Learning

Assessments have been designed to measure how well learning outcomes are being met - hence the name Assurance of Learning. Some assessments are embedded as part of your compulsory papers and may have marks, and some are required in order to complete your programme.

Near the completion of your programme you will be required, as part of the compulsory assessment for your X-type occurrence of either ACCT313, ECON309 or FINA306, to complete a Financial Analysis and Specialist Knowledge test. You will also be required to complete a Portfolio of Achievement which can be completed at the same time as your enrolment in the X occurrence, or later in your programme, but before you apply to graduate. Your Portfolio is submitted online and will contain work that has already been completed and assessed that you believe best represents your achievement of the learning goals for the programme. The Portfolio should consist of a minimum of three assessment items. These three items should be drawn from at least two papers. You will be able to select and retrieve any previously submitted electronic assignments for this purpose.

Full instructions for the tests will be available via your X-type occurrence paper outline. These Assurance of Learning assessments should take no more than three hours' work.
