Module feedback

Module assessment reports to students are written by the module leader for all assessments (open and closed) and placed on the VLE after the Board of Examiners has received the module marks. The timescale for the return of feedback will accord with TYMS policy.

Additionally, for open assignments students are given individual written feedback via The York Management School assignment feedback form. The feedback form provides guidance on key areas for focusing upon improvements for future assessments, and ties module specific learning outcomes to marking criteria. This form is normally provided after the relevant Part A and Part B Board of Examiners meeting. However, if a module has more than one assessment element feedback on earlier submissions is released as soon as possible after marking of the assignment element
