These time-constrained assessments are useful for the assessment of, for example: demonstrating knowledge and understanding in a range of subjects and techniques; skills in solving problems, developing plans, the use of technology as well as quantitative skills. This form of assessment is also useful to provide opportunities to students to demonstrate speed of thought within time constraints.

Each student will receive an examination briefing document.

As with examinations, assignment (coursework) may take various forms including: individual and group work, investigations leading to report submission, essays, oral presentations, portfolios, preparing briefing papers and poster presentations.
