Assessment brief AC0779 Strategic Management of Healthcare

The module has both formative and summative assessments.

Summative assessment is a way to measure whether, and to what extent, you have met the learning outcomes for the module. This gives you your final module mark to determine if you have passed or failed the module.

Formative assessment has no associated module marks. It is a ‘practice’ for the summative assessment. This will familiarise you with the assessment type and also provide formative feedback that you can use in your final assessment. Formative assessment can also support you to reflect on your own learning.

Please go to the following link that provides lots of helpful information for students about assessments.
