Assessment Principle -- -- The capstone experience should include assessment that: 1: Enables students to apply their knowledge skills and capabilities in an authentic context ; 2: Tests whether or not students are able to apply knowledge skills and capabilities in unfamiliar contexts ; 3: Incorporates feedback from a multitude of sources including peers and self‐reflection to enable students to become self‐reliant and to exercise their own professional judgment ; 4: Recognises the culminating nature of the capstone experience.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
