Semester: Autumn 2016 Module Code: MATI3006 Module Title: Numeracy 1 Programme Bachelors’ Degree Extended Programme Level: Level 3 Awarding Body: University of Plymouth Module Leader Kasia Brys Format: Portfolio Any special requirements: All work should be submitted on the Student Portal. Word Limit: N/A Deadline dates for submission: Tuesday 13th December 2016 2:00 pm Learning outcomes to be examined in this assessment 1. Apply numerical skills, concepts and techniques in a variety of business and academic contexts. 2. Demonstrate an ability to calculate and interpret statistical values. 3. Be able to interpret and process mathematical problems in personal and professional contexts. Percentage of marks awarded for module: Portfolio worth 100% of the total mark Section 1: 30% Section 2: 70% PORTFOLIO GUIDANCE: This portfolio consists of two sections: Section 1 is assessed in ‘pass/fail’ criteria and it is worth 30% of the final mark. For example, if a student completes and passes 2 out of 3 tasks outlined in Sections 1 he/she will be given the following marks: 2 / 3 x 30 = 20 Section 1 consists of 3 tasks (10% each): Task 1 – Skills Audit Task 2 – In class Activity Task 3 – Online Activity - students are expected to complete and pass (40%) relevant online activity/quiz. The results page will need to be saved (screenshot) and inserted under a relevant area of the portfolio. Student’s name must be visible in the screenshot. Section 2 is worth 70% of the final mark and consists of 8 questions. Students are required to complete all questions and tasks set out in this portfolio. Task 1 Task 2 Task 3 Total Section 1 Pass/Fail (Skills Audit) Pass/Fail (In class activity) Pass/Fail (Online Activity) 30 % Section 2 70% (8 questions) N/A N/A 70% 100% GSM LONDON GENERIC ASSESSMENT MARKING CRITERIA LEVEL 3  Level 3: prepares students to function effectively at Level 4. Criteria for assessment at Level 3 reflect the preparatory nature of these modules.  Students are expected to demonstrate the acquisition of generic learning skills appropriate for self-managed learning in an HE context. Students are expected to demonstrate that they have acquired the underpinning discipline-specific skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to undertake a programme of higher education  These criteria are designed to be a reference point for assessment criteria in all subjects. Where the generic criteria are deemed to be sufficient, they can be used directly for assessing students` learning.
