Assessments are designed to allow students to demonstrate their achievement of the stated learning outcomes of every module they study. Given the constant relationship between practice and theory, students will encounter a range of assessment demands including:
Planning and facilitating workshops for others
Formative assessment in the form of pre-assessment, peer appraisal and self-appraisal is widely employed at DTS. Students are encouraged to work together on many projects collaborating on the most effective study methods for each individual in the group.
Modules in the Certificate and Advanced Certificate level are assessed in line with general academic wisdom which seeks that progressive development for the student should occur between successive levels within the overall programme. The emphasis is continually on the requirement for the student to demonstrate the applied nature of any principles studied.
