Assessment

Edit Assessments Content
The assessment requirements will be defined as part of the proposal, and will be developed in conjunction with and approved by the supervisor. Assessment is measured on the work carried out on the project, as viewed through the assessment items, including any artefacts (implementations or other) produced as part of the project activity. Success is weighed against difficulty. As part of the assessment process, a demonstration may be requested of any application or artefact produced as part of the project. Similarly, for inspection of any relevant data or source code.
