Abstract:

This paper reports on the curriculum design of an Access programme in Dumfries and Galloway which has taken 23 per cent of its intake of disadvantaged adults successfully into FE and/or HE, and many others into employment. The nature of the assessment, summative and formative, which was incorporated in the integrated curriculum design, was critical to creating confidence, a positive attitude to education, and thence to successful engagement with cognitive demands. Data from the programme demonstrates the importance of addressing such students' affective agendas, and how facilitated self-assessment in particular is a vehicle for 'mainstreaming' students from the isolation of disadvantage into successful educational progress.
