Part 1: Activities
You will complete an activity every week from Week 3 onwards. There are two types of activities.
Theory and practice weeks (20 marks)
In Weeks 4, 6, 8 and 10 you will complete a short quiz based on the learning resources.
Each quiz will have five questions, each worth one mark.
Types of programs, products and services weeks (70 marks)
In Weeks 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 12 and 13, you will complete an activity related to the weekly topic in six out of the seven weeks.
In one week of your choice, you can use a ‘get out of jail free card’ and skip the activity.
You must complete one of each of the following activity types: argue a point; program review; service review; Twitter chat champion; issues-based reflection; trends reflection.
Marks for activities
Your first three activities will be marked out of 30 and your second three activities will be marked out of 30.
Timely submission incentive
There are also a further 12 marks for timely submission. The intention is to get you to contribute your posts close to the time we cover the topic but to give you flexibility to submit later if you wish.
Yes, I said 12 marks! And if your maths is better than mine, you’ll know there are only 10 marks left for this part of the assignment. That means there is a total of 72 marks up for grabs rather than 70.
Here’s how the sliding scale works:
- Submit by the end of the nominated week: 2 additional marks
- Submit by the end of the following week: 1 additional mark
- Submit after the end of the following week but before the next checkpoint: 0 additional marks
