Should assessment have a lower emphasis on academic writing in the beginning and more emphasis on writing for professional purposes which would be more familiar to students.

Writing skills should be scaffolded through the module/course or even throughout the award/course so that the student gradually moves toward written argument, longer academic writing pieces, inclusion of academic work in responses and so on.

Could do it:
- pre-reg via an audit/diagnostic (but issues here owing to late registration)
- integrate within TMA 01 as a skills assessment (low weighting) - extended piece of writing. If any issues identified at this stage, additional support may be required throughout the module.

We agree but suggest embedding study skills possibly within TMA weeks. Include study support advice at timely intervals in the Study Guide before formal assessment.
Include study skills support in tutorials as well as content. ALs need more time, staff development and guidance from CT about better integration of study skills support for students.
Make assumptions about ICT expertise which is often the media for study skills support.
