There are three basic types of assessment.  Assessments are more than just a way of giving you a final result though!  For us; these assessments are opportunities to revisit things you have studied; interact with our academic staff, and look at things from another perspective. Psychologists know that true learning requires revisiting what you learn. Through these assessments, your learning is strengthened and in doing so, your ability to retain and apply your learning after study is strengthened.
By giving you different types of assessment tasks, the ways in which you encounter information is varied.  The three types of assessments are:
1.    Self-assessment tests (SAT):  These are presented during each lesson and are essentially an on-line quiz.  These provide immediate results, so you are able to identify areas that require further work.
2.    Assignments: These are undertaken at the end of each lesson and are designed to consolidate the lesson aim and the content.
3.    Optional Final Exam: Upon successful completion of all the lessons, you are able to choose to sit a final exam.  This can be sat at your convenience.  There is an additional cost for this option.  Upon successful completion of the exam, you will receive a formal transcript as proof of your results.
