The Assessment Handbook has now been replaced with 8 separate assessment policies that cover different aspects of assessment whilst studying with The Open University.
The Assessment Handbook (Microcredentials) outlines The Open University’s policies relating to the assessment tasks you may have to complete as part of your course and explains the outcomes and/or result you will receive. This Handbook provides you with the general rules and regulations for completing and submitting your assessment task and explains the result grades we use, while separate course-specific information on your microcredential website will tell you about the individual assessment task for your microcredential.
The Assessment Banking Rules set out the conditions you will have to meet if, when you defer an eligible module, you wish to retain the scores from assessments you have completed.
Mae'r polisi hwn a chanllawiau perthnasol wedi cael eu llunio fel rhan o ymateb Y Brifysgol Agored i Hysbysiad Cydymffurfio Swyddfa Comisiynydd y Gymraeg a gyflwynwyd i'r Brifysgol Agored. Nod yr hysbysiad cydymffurfio yw sicrhau bod Y Brifysgol Agored yn bodloni gofynion diwygiedig Mesur y Gymraeg (Cymru) 2011. Rhan o'r telerau hyn yw bod myfyrwyr sy'n byw yng Nghymru yn cael cyflwyno aseiniadau neu sefyll arholiadau drwy gyfrwng y Gymraeg, a dylai'r polisi hwn a chanllawiau cysylltiedig amlinellu sut y bydd hyn yn cael ei weinyddu.
