Group Formation and Submission Guidelines
It is required that you complete this assessment as a group with two to four members. Group membership must be finalised by the end of week 3 and you need to inform your campus lecturer of the group members’ details. It is advisable that you form your own groups with students in your class. If you are having difficulty in forming a group, seek the advice of your
campus lecturer before Friday week 4. Distance students should refer all such issues to the Unit Coordinator.
If required because of personal circumstances, it may be possible to do the assignment alone. In order to do the assignment alone, you will need to seek the approval of your campus lecturer.
The coversheet for the group assignment must outline the names and student IDs of all the group members. All group members must submit the same report on Moodle. If all group members do not submit the same report, marks will not be allocated. Your marker will pick one member’s report from Moodle. The same mark will be applied to all the members of a group. Penalties will also be shared amongst the group. Hence, it is important that all members submit the report on time and ensure that it is free of any plagiarism too.Order Now
