4 Practical Assessment
Assessment Title  Practical Assessment 

Task Description The practical assessment task contributes 10% of the final grade. The objective of this assessment item is to assess students’ ability to relate the practical knowledge with the course learning outcomes. There will be 5 experiments:
Students will work in teams and rotate their roles as team leaders. Coordination of all information to prepare the final laboratory report is the responsibility of the team leader of that experiment. LOs 1, 2 and 5 will be addressed by the practical assessment task. However, there is particular emphasis on LO5 dealing with team work and preparation of technical reports based on thorough analysis of laboratory data and use of Civil Engineering language. Students enrolled in distance mode will carry out the experiments during the compulsory Residential School. There will be weekly schedule for oncampus students.


Assessment Due Date  One week after the experiment. 
Return Date to Students  Two weeks after submission due date.
