Assessment for the course will be based entirely on coursework and a group oral presentation. There are no exams.
You will be assessed on two pieces of work. The main assignment (R2) will be a personal report which will describe the team project that you have carried out, what your personal contribution was to the project, your goals and your conclusions. The second assessed assignment (GP2) will be a group presentation of your team's project.
There will also be two assignments earlier in the semester, again consisting of a personal report (R1) and a group presentation (GP1). However, these will not contribute to the overall grade for the course. Instead, they will be an opportunity for you to receive feedback and 'feed-forward' in preparation for the assessed coursework.

Academic Good Practice
You should also make yourself aware of the University requirements for all assessed work for credit. Details about this can be found at the following links:
- University Information on Academic Misconduct
- School of Informatics Information on Academic Misconduct
Furthermore, you are required to take reasonable measures to protect your assessed work from unauthorised access. For example, if you put any such work on a public repository then you must set access permissions appropriately (generally permitting access only to yourself, or your group in the case of group practicals).
