The coursework for this ACS module is assessed using six ticks and two mini-projects. The ticks count in total for 30 percent and the mini-projects each count for 35 percent.
All coursework must be submitted both in corner-stapled hardcopy and by zip file email by given deadlines. The email will contain source code and a brief report in pdf format. This form of cover sheet must be used on the top of all submissions and a member of Student Admin staff must sign and date each hardcopy submission as it is received.
Six Proficiency Ticks
Proficiency Ticks account for 30 percent of the module credit in total.
Proficiency Ticks are marked on a scale of 1 to 5 and the full mark will be awarded for simply meeting the tick requirements without extra credit for presentation etc.. Ticks might sometimes be completed during the practical classes. The ticks must be handed in to student admin in hard-copy form and email by 4:00 pm on the Tuesday following the week where the tick was set.
It is expected that most candidates will be awarded full credit for their tickable work on first submission, but tickable work can be resubmitted later in the term for re-assessment as desired.
