General Assessment Criteria
Assessments provide the opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge and skills to
achieve the required standard. To do this, assessment responses need to be both clear and easy
to understand. If not, the University cannot determine that students have demonstrated their
knowledge and skills. Assessments will, therefore, be marked accordingly including the
potential for 0 (zero) marks where relevant.
Portfolio items 1 (PF1) and 2 (PF2) must focus on the topics given in the specifications for
each item. Any assessment items outside the required topic may be awarded 0 (zero) marks.
These Portfolio items must be submitted as per the requirements.
PF2 is focused on addressing requirements of the Report (Assessment 3). The intent of PF2 is
to provide you with constructive feedback to help you successfully complete the Report.
