Aim of assessment:
This assessment item aims to provide you with an opportunity to explore human development in depth. Throughout the unit, you will examine physical, sociocultural and moral/cognitive issues throughout the lifespan and understand the relationship of these aspects of development to an individual's self-concept. You will also be exposed to a variety of predictable (normative) and unpredictable (non-normative) life transitions which influence cognitive and social development (Hoffnung et al, 2016). This assessment item gives you scope to explore the cognitive and social development of children in more detail.
