Assessment of competence is based on learning objectives defined in the curriculum. Learning objectives depict what type of competence is required from a student to receive a degree. The assessment is considered in three points of view: student, working life representative/supervisor and teacher.
The assessment criteria derived from the learning objectives are used to identify learning outcome. Assessment of competence depicts how well set learning objectives have been achieved.
Competence is assessed from many perspectives by examining development in practical, academic, social and evaluative competence.
Assessment methods are selected so that they truly measure achievement and the level of competence.
Assessment of competence and rectification of assessment comply with Lapland University of Applied Sciences’ degree regulations. Assessment is on a scale of 0–5 or pass/fail. Assessment criteria are defined for each study unit. A detailed assessment plan for each study unit is presented in the study unit’s implementation plan.
The feedback collected from the students will develop the quality of the degree programme. You have a change to give feedback about the implementation of the study units as well as overall yearly feedback.
