Assessment Title  Module Tests 

Task Description You will complete nine modules in MATH40252 (from the Technical Mathematics for University textbook). At the conclusion of each module, you must complete the corresponding Module Test. The tests are available on the MATH40252 Moodle site and must be submitted via Moodle. The Module Tests are formative and are completed as assignments  no supervision is required. The purpose of the Module Tests is to monitor your progress throughout the term, allowing you to identify any concepts that require further review. The tests also provide a basis for communication between you and your Lecturer/Unit Coordinator. You must achieve an average of 50% across the nine Module Tests in order to be awarded a PASS for Assessment Item 1. You must also PASS Assessment Item 1 in order to be awarded a PASS for MATH40252. 

Assessment Due Date  Module Tests are due on the Monday of the week specified in the Unit Profile Schedule. A more detailed version of this schedule can be found in the TMU Unit Guide located on the unit Moodle site. 
Return Date to Students  The Module Tests will be marked and returned within 710 days of the test due date or submission date. Your tests will be returned via the unit Moodle site for all students.
