You have to submit assignment 01 before the due date in order to be admitted to the examination . Assignment 01 consists of 20 multiple-choice questions, while assignments 02 and 03 contain essay questions. 6.6 Assignment due dates Specific due dates have been set for the assignments. No extensions on the due dates will be given for handing in compulsory assignments. The due dates are determined by the office of the Academic Planner, and not by lecturers. Lecturers, therefore, cannot give extensions on assignment due dates. The due dates of the various assignments and their unique numbers (where applicable) are reflected below: Assignment number First semester Second semester Due date Unique number Due date Unique number 01 3 March 2010 326237 6 August 2010 204835 02 29 March 2010 - 12 September 2010 - 03 Self-assessment - Self-assessment - 04 Self assessment - Self-assessment - Assignments 01 and 02 for the two semesters are different. Different unique numbers are, therefore, allocated to the two assignments 01s for the first and second semester. Please make sure that you provide the correct unique number on the mark-reading sheet. 6.7 Demarcation of tutorial matter for the completion of assignments For the completion of assignments, you should study mainly the following study units in the study guide in conjunction with the relevant sections in the text book. Assignment First semester Second semester Assignment 01 Study units 1, 2, and 3 Study units 1, 2, and 3 Assignment 02 Study units 3, 5, and 12 Study units 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 Assignment 03 Study units 3, 5, and 6 Study units 3, 5, and 6 Assignment 04 Study units 2, 7, and 8 Study units 2, 7, and 8 Enquiries about the receipt of assignments or assignment marks may be directed to the Directorate of Student Assessment Administration (see the Your service guide @ Unisa brochure for details). Assignment information can also be obtained by accessing my Unisa. 6.8 Year mark and final assessment mark Your final assessment mark for the module will be a combination of an assignment mark and the examination mark. You earn a year mark by submitting assignments 01 and 02 . The marks obtained for these assignments will be combined with your examination mark in order to calculate the final assessment mark for this module. The assignment marks will contribute a maximum of 10% (5% each) to the final assessment mark for the module, while the examination mark will contribute 90%. Note that only the submission of assignment 01 is required for admission to the examination although the marks obtained for both assignments contribute towards you final mark. Therefore, if you did not submit assignment 02, you will still be admitted to the examination. However, if you did not submit assignment 02, you will forfeit 5% of your final mark (see example 3 below). You will have to obtain a minimum of 50% for the year mark and the examination mark combined for the final assessment mark in order to pass the module.
