• Feedback individually to students, post-assessment
• Group/class feedback, post-assessment
The module is assessed across typically four to five 'work stages', with each one requiring a verbal presentation as well as the production of various types of drawings and models. Assessment is by a panel of typically three to five tutors and/or invited external landscape architects or other experts. Marks are assigned on the day of the presentation. Feedback is available individually normally within one week of each presentation with the exception of the final presentation. The final presentation typically takes the form of an exhibition on a date agreed with students on the first week after the end of formal teaching. A hard copy bound thesis document and digital copy is also required to be handed in prior to the External Examiner's visit.
