All students in any particular assignment group are expected to participate fully.
All students in the same assignment group will earn the same marks.
After submitting the assignment, the group may be asked to defend the submission before
the course lecturer (or his nominated representative). The lecturer may nominate any
member of a group to defend the submission on behalf of the group. In other words, it is
not advisable for any group to condone a non-contributing colleague.
Each group should have a minimum of 5 students and a maximum of 8 students.
This assignment is weighing 20% towards your CA marks.
The submission should indicate the names and student numbers of the members of the
group.
Where a group member is not contributing, an advance report should be lodged with the
lecturer in writing. The lecturer will counsel the affected student. This will again be
discussed during the defense / presentation of the submission.
A group member found guilty of not contributing to a submission will score a zero for that
assignment.
