|CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT (CA) & FINAL EVALUATION|
A student’s progress is assessed continuously throughout the course by means of a specified number of ASSIGNMENTS and at the end of the course by means of a Final Evaluation. The final evaluation component may consist of written examinations or of Projects/Project Reports.
Students are expected to submit a specified number of assignments for each course. These will be commented on, marked and graded before they are returned to the student.
These assignments form an integral part of the study system of the Open University and may also include tests, field work, practical work, minor research investigations etc. depending on the course.
The scheme of continuous assessment for each course in the MA in TESL is indicated in Table 1 below.
The final mark (Overall mark) for each course is determined by a combination of the Continuous Assessment mark (40%) and the final evaluation mark (60%).
