How is the ATHE - Level 4 Extended Diploma in Business and Management course assessed?

The assessment of the Level 4 Business and Management qualifications is completed through the submission of internally assessed learner work.

To achieve a pass for a unit, a learner must have successfully achieved the learning outcomes at the pass standard set by the assessment criteria for that unit.

To achieve merit or distinction, the learner must demonstrate that they have achieved the criteria set for these grades.

Learners cannot omit completing work to meet the pass standard and simply work to the higher grades, as this would put a pass for the unit in jeopardy. Similarly, learners cannot complete work to meet the criteria for distinction in the anticipation that this will also meet the criteria for merit. However, where work for the pass standard is marginal, assessors can consider any extension work completed as this may support achievement of the pass standard.
