The purpose of the formative component of this assessment is to help you and your tutor identify strengths, and any
potential gaps in your knowledge, understanding and skills expected for the successful completion of your summative
component. This form of ongoing assessment helps you and your tutor to systematically track and document progress
toward the attainment of learning outcomes. It also requires you to engage in the assessment process well ahead of the
summative due date thus allowing you to reflect on your own efforts and improve.
