ABP PGDSSD is unit-based. At this stage each unit is assessed through online assessment.
Each unit is assessed internally by ABP. Internal assessment means that assessors of ABP are responsible for deciding how students have performed against the standards for the course.
ABP does this by using either assessment tasks that we have devised ourselves, or assessments that Edupro, UK has devised. The internal assessment decisions are externally verified by Edupro, UK.
