Appendix 2 Assignment-based assessment
Within the CIM qualifications at both Professional Certificate and Professional Diploma levels
there are several assessment options available. These are detailed in the outline of modules
below. The purpose of an assignment is to provide another format to complete each module for
students who want to apply the syllabus concepts from a module to their own or a selected
organization. For either qualification, there are three modules providing assessment via an
assignment and one module assessed via an integrative work-based project. The module
assessed via the integrative project is the summative module for each qualification.
