This unit does not have a final exam. Instead, there will be in-class tests at the weeks listed in the table above.
Participation in class is a hurdle without an assessment weight. This means that you must attend the lectures and Small Group Teaching Activity (SGTA) sessions, and engage in their activities, in order to pass the unit. In particular, you must engage in the activities of at least the following:
- 7 SGTA 1 sessions. These are listed as "Practical_1" in your timetable.
- 7 SGTA 2 sessions. These are listed as "Practical_2" in your timetable.
- 7 lectures.
The foundation activities are a hurdle without an assessment weight. This means that these activities are not graded but you must complete them as outlined in order to pass this unit. This unit has been designed so that 20% of student workload is allocated to these activities. Some activities will be automatically graded, but all will ask you to apply the modules to your work in this unit, general university studies and your personal goals. You will be informed of any due dates, but most modules can be completed in your own time. See your iLearn unit for detailed information on how to complete these modules.
There will be 4 in-class tests at the weeks as specified in the table above.
The project and portfolio is based on an individual project where you will apply some of the skills learnt during the unit on a practical problem.
In the reproducibility project is a two-stage project where you will write a report (stage 1) and then you will assess the reproducibility of someone else's report (stage 2).
