Assessment

Edit Assessments Content

The learning outcomes are assessed in weekly assignments, labs, a test and an exam, weighted as shown:

50% Final exam (Closed Book)

10% Test 1 - Heat Transfer

10% Test 2 - Fluids

18% Assignments

12% Lab work (6 x 2%)

Final exam

The final examination, held during Examination weeks, will cover the whole semester’s lecture material. It will be a closed book examination. Programmable calculators, not containing stored information, are allowed. It is worth 50% of your final grade. The format of the final examination will be discussed in lectures during the last week of the course.

Test

There will be two restricted book tests to help you prepare for the final exam. ONE sheet (2 sides) of A4 notes. The test is worth 10% of your final grade. The date is shown below. The format will be discussed in class prior to the test.

Assignments

There will be ten weekly assignments given out in the tutorial sessions starting in week one. The best eight will be counted.

They contribute 18% to the final mark. Assignments should be handed to the main Faculty reception desk on the ground floor of FG Block by 10:00 am two weeks after they were handed out. Worked solutions will be posted on Moodle after the due date.

Lab work

There are six laboratory sessions. Each student is required to complete the lab worksheet for each laboratory session. The worksheet should be handed to the main Faculty reception desk on the ground floor of FG Block, by Friday 5 pm on the week of the lab.

Assessment Components

Edit Assessments Content

The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. There is no final exam. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.

The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50 or 0:0, whichever is more favourable for the student. The final exam makes up either 50% or 0% of the overall mark.
