Meini Prawf
trothwy
Equivalent to 40%. Uses key areas of theory or knowledge to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module. Is able to formulate an appropriate solution to accurately solve tasks and questions. Can identify individual aspects, but lacks an awareness of links between them and the wider contexts. Outputs can be understood, but lack structure and/or coherence.
da
Equivalent to the range 60%69%. Is able to analyse a task or problem to decide which aspects of theory and knowledge to apply. Solutions are of a workable quality, demonstrating understanding of underlying principles. Major themes can be linked appropriately but may not be able to extend this to individual aspects. Outputs are readily understood, with an appropriate structure but may lack sophistication.
ardderchog
Equivalent to the range 70%+. Assemble critically evaluated, relevent areas of knowledge and theory to constuct professionallevel solutions to tasks and questions presented. Is able to crosslink themes and aspects to draw considered conclusions. Presents outputs in a cohesive, accurate, and efficient manner.
