Assessment Title  Workbook 

Task Description The compulsory Workbook provides a record or detailed diary of each individual student’s study and learning activities throughout the course and should include all individual work carried out. Preparation of a Workbook should be understood as good study technique. It also provides evidence that students have adequately studied the whole course and achieved course learning outcomes. The Workbook can be handwritten or kept as a text file. A handwritten Workbook may be most appropriate if the course involves maths and diagrams. Each entry should be dated, pages should be numbered and show your name or initials. It should be prepared week by week, not at the end of term. Show rough attempts at problems including failures and fixes, brainstorming, draft notes and developing ideas. In the Workbook students should record:
Workbook submission is separated into two parts as detailed below: 1. Submission of Part 1 of the Workbook  Due on Monday 20th April 2015 before 23.45. 2. Submission of Part 2 of the Workbook  Due on Friday 12th June 2015 before 23.45. More details on what is expected in these submissions will be made available through course Website. 

Assessment Due Date  Review/Exam Week Friday (09Jun2017) 11:45 PM AEST Submit Part 2 of the Workbook to the link in Week 12 of the course website in Moodle as a WORD or PDF file. 
Return Date to Students  Exam Week Friday (16Jun2017) Feedback given through course website in Moodle 
Weighting  Pass/Fail 
Assessment Criteria Workbook questions will be set for each Topic and will be available on the Course Website. These questions are denoted as Compulsory questions or Extension questions. All compulsory questions will have an answer (but not a solution) provided so that students can check their results. If students have difficulty with Workbook questions, they should seek assistance from colleagues in their online study groups in the first instance. ALL Compulsory questions must be successfully completed in the workbook and responses must show sufficient working and explanation to allow stepbystep checking by tutors. 

Conditions  Minimum mark or grade  Students must achieve a pass for this assignment, which will be assessed by the unit coordinator based on the quality of the workbook submission.
