Rationale for
assessment and
relationship of
assessment methods
to learning outcomes
(30 characters or less)
The assessment has been designed to address the learning outcomes of the
module. A terminal examination provides the opportunity to assess key skills
and knowledge and meets the requirements of the professional accounting
bodies.
Ethical issues are addressed through a review of current professional
guidelines and their application in practice. Globalisation is addressed through
the focus on international accounting standards.
