Assessment Strategies
All Courses will be assessed by diversified continuous assessment.  To ensure authenticity of assessment evidence, at least 50 % of the assessment events making up the final mark must be conducted under controlled conditions similar to those under which institutional examinations are conducted. Should examination conditions not be appropriate for the nature of the assessment, the lecturer and department must take appropriate and rigorous steps to ensure such authenticity.
