How you will be assessed
There are two exercises and one project. The project is about Tauranga Harbour, and is divided into 2 sections: one in which you analyse, plot and interpret data; the other in which you write a short essay interpreting your results within the wider context of harbour issues. You can choose which issues you would like to focus on. There are also fortnightly quizzes and a test.
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 60:40. The final exam makes up 40% of the overall mark.
