Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
Use of text matching software
In order to pass the unit you must attempt each quiz and acheive a minimum of 25% on each test. Your overall grade will be calculated as an average of all your tests and you need to get 50% overall to pass. This means that if you get less than 25% on at least one test your grade is NX, no matter what your overall average is and if you do not complete at least one test your grade will be NC, no matter what your overall average is.
Grades are calculated from your total mark using the university's standard grading schema:
Lectures (2 hours/week; 12 times)
Tutorials (1 hours/week; 11 times)
Weekly study (6 hours/week; 12 times)
Online tests (1 hours; 10 times)
Study for online tests
It is expected that each week you will listen to the lecture and attend, either face-to-face or online, a tutorial. It is also expected that you will attempt the practice quizzes and if you have any problems go to MASH to seek help.
Required IT skills
All students are assumed to be able to:
- Read and print documents on the unit website – mostly in Adobe PDF format.
- Communicate using e-mail.
- Use their own scientific (non-programmable) calculator.
Work placement, internships or practicums
