This session will outline the current 2-year funded project in which we are undertaking research to assist in the construction of a model for assessing and gaining credit for HUBS students on placement. Although assessed, the placement does not currently count towards the final degree classification, therefore part of the research brief is to investigate, pilot, evaluate and implement an assessed module(s) which would be used in the calculation of the final degree mark. We will highlight the research undertaken to determine placement models within HEI Business Schools and explore the outcomes from interviewing current and previous placement students all of which has assisted with the development of two modules which will be piloted for students on placement from 2007 to 2008. This will lead to broader consideration of the issues surrounding the assessment of work-based learning
