  26. 26. www.openMedproject.eu Assessment • During the online learning phase, (Oct – Dec, 2017) activities are proposed within modules, co-ordinated by Local Facilitators (LF) • Formative feedback provided by the LF including peer- to-peer feedback where possible • Project work phase (Jan-Feb, 2018) • Peer-based through presentation with summative feedback provided by the LF based on a common rubric
  27. 27. www.openMedproject.eu Common Assessment Rubric for Project Work • Learning from each module assessed • Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Challenging, Problematic • Descriptors for each • Not a specific grade for each section but bands of marks • 35%, 45%, 55%, 65%, 75% • For example, 45% accounts for the band of marks 40 – 49 • Add up each section and divide by 5 = overall mark • Course certification – ‘Statement of Participation’
