Examinations may be practical, interview style, aural testing and/or theory based. For theory based examinations questions may be objective, structured, short answer and so on. Specific information about the types of examination questions that should be used to assess a learner in a theory based examination can be found in the section on guidelines for assessment in the validated programme module.
An examination paper is an assessment instrument designed by the assessor in accordance with the instruction given in the provider's validated programme module. The examination paper assesses a range of learning outcomes as specified in section 11b, Mapping of Learning Outcomes to Assessment Techniques, of the programme module and may comprise short answer and/or structured questions. For each examination paper the assessor is required to devise a marking scheme and set of outline solutions. An examination paper may be required to assess learners at levels 4, 5 or 6.
