Assessment

Edit Assessments Content
This course is fully assessed internally. Coursework specifications will be discussed in class and posted to Moodle. Except for the group project, all components such as developing the CV, quizzes, and interviews, are to be completed on an individual basis. Coursework must be submitted by the due date. If you have not completed it, submit what you have done so far. Individual extensions will not be given except for medical circumstances specifically affecting that item of assessment, documented by a medical certificate or counsellor's letter. In the unlikely event that technical problems arise which the instructor considers would merit an extension, the due date for the assignment will be extended for the entire class.
