Assessment Title  Labaratory Reports 

Task Description
Each student will be required to complete the laboratory exercises as per the instruction sheets which will be available in the unit website. Laboratory sessions are compulsory, and each session will be up to 2 hours in duration. The timetable of laboratories will be supplied separately via unit website (Moodle).
Statement on Safety:
According to the Workplace Health and Safety Act, 1995, it is a legal requirement that all persons at a workplace must not act in a manner that endangers the health or safety of any person at that workplace. As a student, your University is your workplace. When attending laboratories, workshops and field activities, fully enclosed footwear covering the whole foot must be worn at all times. Other personal protective equipment must be worn when required, or as directed by the lecturer or technical officerincharge. All requirements of the Faculty Workplace Clothing Policy must also be observed. In the laboratory clothing must fully cover the torso, and have at least a short sleeve (i.e. no singlets). Failure to comply with any of the above health and safety requirements may result in your exclusion from laboratory, workshop or activities  most of which are compulsory.
At laboratory session:
Arrive early; communicate with other members of the groups and be ready for the laboratory experiment.
Ensure to bring:
Laboratory instruction sheets if any;
Graph paper (A4 linear, 10 div/cm);
Notebook (A4 hard bound);
Ruler (30 cm clear plastic);
Pen & pencil;
Scientific calculator;
Correct footwear.
Students are expected to complete the entire laboratory exercise including the drawing of graphs and calculating the final answer. All raw data must be entered in the notebook immediately.
Laboratory submission cover sheet:
Softcopy (electronic) submissions must be compiled as one single pdf file and submitted through the unit website (Moodle). The first page of the assignment must show the following information: Names, Student Numbers, Group No, Year, Term, Unit Code, Assessment item details.

4 Written Assessment
Assessment Title  Workbook 

Task Description
The Workbook provides a record or detailed diary of each individual student’s study and learning activities throughout the unit. It should include all individual work and activities.
Maintaining a Workbook is viewed as a sound study technique. It is intended to provide an evidence if students have adequately studied the whole unit and achieved unit learning outcomes. The Workbook can be handwritten or kept as a text file. Each entry should be dated and pages should be numbered with student name or initials. It should be prepared week by week, not at the end of the Term. It should contain your attempts at problems including failures and fixes, brainstorming, draft notes and developing ideas.
A typical Workbook should record:


Assessment Due Date  Review/Exam Week Friday (13Oct2017) 11:45 PM AEST 
Return Date to Students  In two weeks from the date of submission 
Weighting  Pass/Fail 
Assessment Criteria
Workbook questions have been set for each topic and are available on the unit website. If students have difficulty with Workbook questions, they should seek assistance. All questions must be successfully completed in the workbook and responses must show sufficient working and explanation to allow stepbystep checking by tutors. At least 50% of the questions must be completed to achieve a Pass grade.
A question will be deemed to have been completed if the student has shown correct procedure and sound understanding of the work. All calculations should be justified with reference to the text or relevant Standards and Codes.
