01. Standard Assessment Criteria
Assessments: Each assignment submitted by the student will comprise of a variety of assessment activities which includes        Reports Exams (open book/close books) Presentations Classroom activities Group work Individual work Debates and many more. th

After the 5 week (subjected to be modified by the assessor) of the semester, an assignment will be issued to the students with different tasks, the format it needs to be presented in and any other information requirements will be highlighted by the assessor/lecturer when the assignment is handed over.

Review dates: All assignments need to be shown for reviews as per the review plan which will be discussed by the assessor/lecturer. Email communication is welcomed by students as well. However if the assessor/lecturer is a part time lecturer, it is advisable to show him/her the review personally unless it is stated that reviews shown via email is accepted. Please note that if reviews are not shown on that particular day, the assessor/lecturer might take time to reply to reviews. Therefore it is best to submit reviews on that day itself.

You’re Lecturer/Assessor and your Colleagues who helped you will obviously be pleased to be acknowledged as they would have invested a quite a lot of time overseeing your progress. Acknowledgements should be brief and to the point and should not exceed one page.

The abstract/ Introduction should help a prospective reader decide whether to read the entire report or not. A good abstract could be written using just a few statements. For example, a four statement abstract could contain the following.   The problem that you are trying to solve can be given as its first statement. The second statement can elaborate on the first statement for example by giving the scope of your Assignment.  The third statement can contain the methodologies that you used in the design and implementation of the solution and the last statement can contain the status of your project like for example whether it achieved the anticipated benefits.
