Final week: patchwork activity
Assessment on the ePPSME units uses a Patchwork Text Methodology. In the final week of a unit learners complete a short narrative that draws together the learning on a unit and shows how they have achieved the learning outcomes for that unit. Where a learner chooses to complete sufficient units to claim 20 HE credits a summative assessment is submitted consisting of a narrative that draws the learning on the ePPSME units together, each of which is equivalent to 5 HE credits at a specified level.
The patchwork text is based on principles developed by Richard Winter.
