Assessment Criteria


60%+ Rhaid i fyfyrwyr ddangos gallu ymarferol da i wneud asesiadau ffisiolegol diogel ac effeithiol. Yn ogystal â dangos ymwybyddiaeth gyffredinol dda o faterion moesegol a moesol yn gysylltiedig â phrofi ymarfer dynol, bydd myfyrwyr yn dangos hefyd bod ganddynt sgiliau egluro a dehongli da wrth ymwneud â data’n deillio o brotocolau asesu penodol.


70%+ Rhaid i fyfyrwyr ddangos bod ganddynt sgiliau asesu ffisiolegol cynhwysfawr, effeithiol a diogel. Bydd myfyrwyr yn dangos ymwybyddiaeth ragorol o’r materion moesegol a moesol sy’n gysylltiedig â phrofi ymarfer dynol. Ymhellach, bydd myfyrwyr ar y lefel hon yn dehongli ac egluro'n rhagorol ddata'n deillio o brotocolau asesu.


Pasio: Rhaid i fyfyrwyr fedru dangos medrusrwydd diogel a sylfaenol mewn amrywiaeth o sgiliau asesu ffisioleg. Rhaid i fyfyrwyr sy’n pasio hefyd ddangos ymwybyddiaeth sylfaenol o’r materion moesegol a moesol sy’n gysylltiedig â phrofi ymarfer dynol. Rhaid iddynt ddangos peth tystiolaeth o allu i ddehongli data a gasglwyd.

Learning outcomes

  1. Dangos dealltwriaeth ddamcaniaethol o gysyniadau ffisiolegol a sut y gellir dehongli a chymhwyso'r data.

  2. Dangos cymhwysedd mewn nifer o asesiadau ffisiolegol craidd yn y labordy, wrth dangos cyfathrebu effeithiol a bod yn ymwybodol o ddiogelwch
