Assessment

The assessment for The Birmingham Project is made up of the following:

  • Peer evaluation (50%) 
  • Group presentation (50%)

You will not be assessed on the online resource that you create as part of the project. The assessment will determine whether you receive a pass or fail status on your University transcript for The Birmingham Project. This will not contribute towards your degree classification as The Birmingham Project does not bear any credits. 

More information about assessment can be seen below:

Peer evaluation (50%)

The peer evaluation will involve grading your peer's performance against a number of criteria. The criteria will include qualities demonstrated during the project fortnight, such as; creativity, work ethic, innovation, communication, team work, punctuality, organisation and efficiency. You will also be asked to complete a self-evaluation as part of this assessment, which will involve grading your own performance against the same criteria (the grades you give yourself do not contribute towards the overall mark).

Group presentation (50%)

The group presentation will be a key event during the two weeks. All students will present their project to their peers as well as a panel of judges made up of project Theme Leads, Challenge Leads and external partner representatives.
