3.2.4    Assessment Modes

The teaching methods applied vary from module to module. Whichever approach is adopted, the aim is to develop each student’s knowledge of the modules, as well as analytical, research and presentation skills. There is a balance of case discussions, small group discussions, computer-simulated games, individual and group projects, quizzes, essay writing, presentations, lectures by guest speakers, etc. Students will be assessed through a combination of these class work components throughout the semester known as ‘Continuous Assessment’ (CA) and the end-of-semester examination. Some modules are assessed based on 100% CA with no end-of-semester examination. The different teaching methods enable students to gain both theoretical and practical skills in a lively and interesting way.
