4 Written Assessment
Assessment Title  Workbook 

Task Description This task is in two parts: 1) Weekly reflection: A weekly reflection on your learning is required to be posted on the moodle course site. This is to include one sentence for each of the following questions. (Directions on how to post your reflections will be provided on the moodle course site.) a. What did you learn during the past week? b. How did you learn it? c. How do you think you could apply it, either now or later in your career? d. What did you find hard to understand? 2) Workbook: The Workbook provides a record and detailed diary of your learning and completed activities throughout the course. Preparation of a Workbook should be understood as good study technique. It also provides evidence that you have adequately studied the whole course and achieved the course learning outcomes. It is worthwhile doing a good attempt at the workbook as, if at the end of the course you are on the border line between two final grades the workbook can be used to determine if the higher grade should be awarded. The Workbook is best handwritten and then scanned and submitted electronically. A handwritten Workbook is most appropriate and most time effective as the course involves many equations and diagrams. It is much quicker to write and sketch freehand. The presentation of the workbook is not as crucial as an assignment as it is recognised you will make mistakes during your learning. Rough sketches and partial attempts/reattempts of questions are acceptable and may add to your grade. The start of each section of work should be dated and all pages should be numbered. 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 must record:
In the Workbook students may also record:
Workbook submission  A Workbook progress submission is required 1pm Monday Week 5. Just submit your workbook to date to enable the teaching team to provide some feedback to let you know how you are going on this task.  The whole Workbook is due at the end of the term, the due date is shown in the course profile. 

Assessment Due Date  Exam Week Monday (12Jun2017) 05:00 PM AEST 
Return Date to Students  The workbook will be returned after the CQU Certification of Grades. 
Weighting  Pass/Fail 
Assessment Criteria To pass this assessment you must:  make a legitimate attempt of at least 50% of the Workbook activities for each topic in the course notes.  submit weekly reflections on the moodle course site. (To provide flexibility you are permitted to submit your reflections 1 week late past the due date to enable those on 7 or 10 day rosters to submit. One week after the reflection due date you will not be able to submit to that week so please add your late reflection in the following week's reflection and label it accordingly ie 'Week 4 reflection'. If you work ahead, feel free to submit reflections in that learning week's reflection submission activity.) Workbook activities guidelines: Workbook activities are set for each Topic and are detailed in the Course Study Guide. All workbook activities have a brief solution provided so that students can check their results. Do not copy the solutions provided and submit as your own work. The solutions provided are only basic and should not be seen as a complete solution. I suggest you first attempt the questions without looking at the solutions. If having difficulty, work through the provided solution and then reattempt the question without looking at the solution. If still having difficulty you are encouraged to scan your work and post it on the moodle course website Q&A forum. As mentioned in the task description the presentation and accuracy of results of the workbook activities are not as crucial as an assignment as it is recognised you will make mistakes during your learning. Rough sketches and partial attempts/reattempts of questions are acceptable and may add to your grade. Workbook activities are seen as ways to stimulate your own learning rather than final work you would submit to a colleague. However there should be some attempt to set out and document your work to show your understanding. Set out and document the activities in a way you could revisit them at a later date if required. The following repeated assignment criteria will help guide the layout of your workbook activities but should not be viewed as rigid. Accuracy and correct results • Correct application of maths and arithmetic • Answers clearly identified (please underline or highlight answers) • Correct results Evidence of correct procedures • All necessary steps in analysis are present • Clear presentation of mathematical and arithmetical working linking the given details of the problem to the results obtained • Indication of the equations used when using spreadsheets (eg Microsoft Excel) or other software • Evidence of checking results (mathematical, graphical, logiccommon sense) Evidence of understanding of the topic • Explanation of any assumptions made • Explanation of choices made in the analysis (why is this procedure is required) • Interpretation of results, eg limitations, direction of vectors Professional presentation • The work (job) is clearly identified (problem, date, analyst) • Clear statement of each problem and its details and requirements • Logical layout of analysis • Clear statement of equations and theory used • Appropriate use of diagrams, clear diagrams, adequately labelled • Correct use of terminology, conventions • Clear English in the explanation of procedure and interpretation of results • Referencing of authoritative sources of equations and data 

Conditions  Minimum mark or grade  Successful completion of this assessment is a requirement for passing this course.
