Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
Normally an aggregate mark of 50% is required to pass the unit. The aggregate mark is the weighted total T of all assessment marks. Final grades are based on the total T:
P (50% ≤ T < 65%), CR (65% ≤ T < 75%), DI (75% ≤ T < 85%), HD (≥ 85% ).
The unit convener reserves the right to question students orally on any of their submitted work. Students are required to develop and maintain an active e-Portfolio related to the project using the Mahara e-Portfolio System.
Students need to book for an oral presentation during Week 12, the available dates and times will be communicated during the course of the Semester.

|Supervisor consultation and project meetings||1 hours/week||for 12 weeks||12 hours|
|Research, reflection and planning including attending lectures, guest lectures and presentations||2 hours/week||for 13 weeks||26 hours|
|Project implementation, e-Portfolio & report writing||8 hours/week||for 13 weeks||104 hours|
