Methods of Teaching, Learning & Assessment

Written assignment

a task assigned to a student by their tutor to be completed mainly outside of teaching sessions

Written assignments are a requirement for every postgraduate programme at Exeter. They are usually assessed formatively or summatively.

Formative assignments are often set earlier in your programme to guage your progress with work that is not formally assessed and does not count towards your final grade.

Summative assignments are the formal assessed work you will complete at the end of a module.

You should pay close attention to the guidelines in your programme handbook or module study guide when composing your assignments in terms of word length, referencing and the submission deadline.
