How will I be assessed?

A wide range of assessment formats will be used within this course, including open and closed book exams, laboratory reports, case studies, portfolios, practical exams and presentations. A general approach will be as follows: critical appraisal of information will be advanced to solve practical problems and to see how best practice can be supported by and advanced through the critical understanding of scientific literature. The course will move assessments from a controlled established scientific base through to a more autonomous and practical application of research to inform the practical skills associated with performance sport as a career. This will be reinforced by original research and athlete assessment creating data to be explored and analysed through reports and research dissertations, while high order practical competency (with problem solving) will be examined in line with governing body competencies, preparing students for potential accreditation and work opportunities.
