  13. 13.  A first year „long-thin‟ module was assessed by four 15 min summative practical assessments throughout the year; two end of semester summative practical exams lasting 30 mins each and a summative assignment. As this course leads to a professional qualification every component has to be passed. In this format the following issues arose, many students were trailing failure from early in the first semester, the ability to catch up marred the students ability to keep up with the new information and skills, students became disillusioned with themselves and the module. High stress levels for students on an ongoing basis and for staff the ongoing summative assessments were extremely time-consuming.
