FR256 Formative Assessment

Important Information

In addition to the summative assignment that you may be REQUIRED to submit for this module, you have the OPTION to write a formative assignment from the list of questions given below. Please note that formative assignments are for training purposes only and do not count as part of your final degree classification.

We strongly recommend that you submit a formative assignment as it will enable you to hone the skills developed in this module and to prepare for your summative assessment(s).

Please see the Moodle page for full details on formative assessment in 2021-22.

Primary and secondary sources

The argument in your essay or commentary should be supported by detailed references to both primary and secondary source material. Primary source material includes the documents in the module sourcebook, which should be referenced in the footnotes using the title of the source and the sourcebook page number.

Formative and summative work: overlap

You may, If you wish, discuss the same text/thinker in a summative assignment as you have discussed in a piece of formative assignment, but you must not reproduce in part or whole any of your formative assignment in your summative assignment.
