Assessment Title  Assignment 1 

Task Description
Please see the unit Moodle site for the questions in this assignment. Questions are from the unit content covered in Weeks 13. Assignment 1 will be available for download under the "Assessment" block on the unit Moodle site, together with complete instructions for online submission of your solutions to the assignment questions. Marks will be deducted for assignments which are submitted late without prior permission or adequate explanation. Assignments will receive NO marks if submitted after the solutions are released (2 weeks after the assignment submission date) but will still be counted as submitted.


Assessment Due Date  Week 4 Friday (31Mar2017) 05:00 PM AEST 
Return Date to Students  Week 6 Friday (21Apr2017) Usually within two weeks of the due date; through the unit Moodle site. 
Weighting  20% 
Assessment Criteria
The final mark is out of 20. Questions are from unit content covered in Weeks 13. Questions are awarded full marks if they are errorfree, partial marks if there are some errors, and no marks if not attempted or contain so many errors as to render the attempt to be without value. The final Assignment 1 mark is scaled to an assessment weighting out of 20. Answers to all questions should be neatly and clearly presented. Full working is required to obtain maximum credit for solutions.


Referencing Style  Harvard (authordate)

Assessment Title  Assignment 3 

Task Description
This is a group assignment. The assignment will need to be submitted online through the unit Moodle site, by the Team Leader nominated by the group. The assignment involves the completion of solutions to a set of specified questions. Questions are from the unit content covered in Weeks 111. Assignment 3 will be available for download under the "Assessment" block on the unit Moodle site, together with complete instructions for online submission of your solutions to the assignment questions. Marks will be deducted for assignments which are submitted late without prior permission or adequate explanation.

Assessment Due Date  Week 11 Friday (26May2017) 05:00 PM AEST 
Return Date to Students  It is envisaged that feedback and solutions will be available prior to sitting the standard examination. 
Weighting  20% 
Assessment Criteria A designated Team Leader, that is nominated by the group, will submit the Assignment 3 submission on behalf of the entire group. The assignment questions are from unit content covered in Weeks 111. Questions are awarded full marks if they are errorfree, partial marks if there are some errors, and no marks if not attempted or contain so many errors as to render the attempt to be without value. Answers to all questions should be neatly and clearly presented. Full working is required to obtain maximum credit for solutions. The final Assignment 3 mark is scaled to an assessment weighting out of 20. A maximum of up to three (3) students are permitted to work in the group. Groups with only one member can also complete the assignment. Students should know that there is to be no acrossgroup discussion of, or consultation on, solutions to the questions posed in this part of the assignment. Students are reminded that any evidence of plagiarism will be dealt with under the university policy.
