Overview of Assessment

This is a progressive assessment, the students are required to undertake summative assessments as follows:
A. Practical laboratory assesment 
B. Demonstrations, reports 


Assessment Tasks

This is a progressive assessment consisting of the following:
Assessments
35% is allocated to practical assessment (labs)
30% is allocated to written test (theory)
35% is allocated to project (presentation, report and technical understanding of the circuit). Details will be given to the students prior to the project.
Total mark = 100 %

All assessment tasks need to be succesfully completed to demonstrate competence.

This course is graded using the following course grades-
CHD- Competent with High Distinction
CDI- Competent with Distinction
CC- Competent with Credit
CAG- Competency Achieved - Graded
NYC- Not Yet Competent
DNS- Did Not Submit for Assessment. (This grade is only to be used where the student’s attendance in the course has been ‘confirmed’ (but they have not participated in any form of assessment and did not withdraw by the census date.)
