Formative and Summative Assessments Guidance and Marking Criteria

The following are the methods by which your knowledge, clinical and reflective practice will be assessed:

  • Short answer question examination
  • Clinical skills competency assessment (video recording)
  • Reflective commentary
  • Supervisor Practice Outcomes Assessment
  • Clinical Portfolio


Workplace Service Leads and workplace Supervisors will be routinely informed of trainees' marks on their academic assignments (e.g. essays, case reports) and clinical assignments (e.g. competency CTS-R assessments). Workplace Service Leads and Supervisors are invited to make contact with the Academic Lead and Clinical Lead should any concerns about a trainee's development arise throughout the year.
