Assessment Information (Terms 2 & 3, 2010-2011)

Please note that all assessments must use a relevant assignment cover sheet (which can be downloaded from Blackboard) and must be handed in on or before the submission deadline.

The following grading scale serves to provide a holistic indication for student performance:
