Course content

This course focuses on difficulties in literacy acquisition, including dyslexia, among young people and investigates how potential barriers to learning can be ameliorated within educational contexts.

The course includes the elements related to assessment theory and practice required by the Joint Council for Qualifications (2014) in qualifications for specialist teachers who assess pupils and students and make recommendations for access arrangements and reasonable adjustments in relation to external examinations in schools.

This is an online version of the course. All the materials are available through the University’s website so you will be able to study the whole course at a distance. Support from course tutors is available through the website, by email or by telephone.
