GY academy will utilise a flipped methodology whereby learners are directed to self-study and follow online instruction material on the platform. This will ensure that all material is covered adequately.
Lectures could mix theory and action learning methodologies such as term project assignment, i.e. case studies, papers, analytical works and so on.
Peer learning” will be strongly encouraged and proper virtual environment will be available to this end, provided by the online learning platform. Moreover, Learners will be able to be supported, tutored or supervised by teachers (or supervisors or tutors), according to what the single teacher will consider as most profitable for her/his specific module or discipline.
Each module could employ one or more of the followings:
Portfolio:A portfolio is a collection of student works that exhibits her/his efforts, progress and achievements assessed on individual basis.
- Projects assignments: a project, a work (e.g. a numerical analysis on a spreadsheet) or a paper could be assigned to a student on an individual or team basis and evaluated individually.
- Examinations: classical evaluation form to assess individual outcomes. Each teacher could define proper details according to the particular discipline and teaching method.
Portfolios as well as Projects, Work or Paper assignments will be designed with a formative assessment perspective in order to support students to achieve relevant learning outcomes;
The assessment procedures will reflect GY academy’s policy and procedures as outlined in the IQA manual namely:
GY academy applies the following structure for grading modules of study and programmes.
Modules of study are assessed by means of projects, portfolios, written assignments and/or examinations.
Assessments are graded against a pre-set rubric which contains percentage marks.
On completion of all assessments for a specific module, students obtain the following grades on the basis of the percentage mark obtained:
- Grade 1 [85% or over]
- Grade 2 [60 to 84%]
- Grade 3 [45 to 64%]
- Fail [0 to 44%]
In the case of a fail, students are offered the opportunity to re-sit/re-submit once the assessments of the module.
On completion of all modules of study, all the percentage marks are weighted (based on the total ECTS value). The total sum obtained is then converted to a percentage performance. Overall programme performance is then graded as follows:
- Distinction [90% or over]
- Merit [70 to 89%]
- Pass [50 to 69%]
