Term Definition
coursework

a set of a learner's assessable material produced during a programme of study. Sometimes it is subjected to continuous assessment but more often to summative grading. It is valued as being more representative of a learner's ability than a summative test would be but is often criticised on grounds of validity and reliability as it is not always possible to be certain that the work is solely the student's nor that the assessment if internal is not subjective.
