One time constrained assessment - worth 100% of the final module mark. Word limit: 2000 words
You will be provided with a pool of 8 questions in seminar 10 of the module (Tuesday 31st March). Four of these questions will be randomly chosen for the TCA, which will be released on Monday 11th May at 9am. You will be required to choose 2 of those questions to answer. You must submit your answers by 5.00pm on Wednesday 13th May.
You should consider the following when preparing for your TCA:
·Each question is equally weighted
·The overall word limit is 2000 words, so each of your answers should be approximately 1000 words
·Your answers must be underpinned by relevant psychological theory and/or research, and contain appropriate referencing (APA format)
·You should demonstrate a breadth of reading that spans beyond the core concepts from lecture slides
·The Reference list is excluded from the word count
·There will be a dedicate assessment preparation seminar on 31 March to discuss assessment and help you to prepare.
·A discussion board is available on NILE for you to ask any questions relating to the TCA. The module tutor will reply quickly here to messages posted. Please post queries here rather than e-mailing the tutor (unless your enquiry is of a personal nature).
