About the assessments
This course is assessed in three parts:
1. 30% of your course grade is based on your timely completion of the weekly participation tasks. There are 13 weekly tasks to be provided, and to achieve a full score you need to complete 10 of them. For each weekly task you complete on time, you will receive a mark of 3, up to a maximum participation score of 30 (10 weekly tasks = 30%).
