Assessment will be through two (2) assignments and a final examination. The assessment procedures are designed to ensure that students develop a range of skills and knowledge as outlined under ‘ Intended Learning Outcomes’.
There will be two assignments, and all written assignments will be formally assessed. These assignments are an integral part of the program and are designed to complement the presented material.
The weight of marks for each assignment is as follows:
Assignment 1 30%
Assignment 2 30%
Final Examination 40%
A written final examination covering all aspects of the coursework will be completed under open-book examination conditions at the end of the program. This exam will contribute 40% of the final mark.
All assignments and the examination will be marked by a Program Director or Academic Advisory Board Member.
Students who have not achieved the necessary standard will be informed of the reassessment options open to them.
