Formative Activities & Assessment
Formative Activities and Assessments are opportunities for you to apply, practice and make sense of the learning materials and content that you have encountered. These may take the form of individual tasks, such as reading some text or watching a video and documenting your reaction to it, responding to some discussion points on the discussion forum, considering a case study, or participating in a live online classroom session. The main aim of formative activities is for you to receive feedback on your contribution or performance that will help you prepare for and complete your final module assessment.
