The course emphasises active contribution by each group member to the project work.
In order to grade the assignment, an individual contribution sheet must be filled out by
each student and submitted to the lecturer in the class along with your notes. The
individual sheets can remain confidential and do not have to be shown to other
students in your team.
A copy of the individual contribution sheet is included in Appendix. You should note
down the percentage contribution of each member of the group (including yourself) to
the finally completed assignment. For example, if you believe all 5 students in your
group contributed equally to the assignment, you should allocate 20% next to each of
the 5 students. The sheet of every member of the group will be used in determining
the grade for the group members.
The group will present the research, with the help of presentation slides, in 15 minutes.
An additional 5 minutes exist for questions and answers. A hard copy of these slides
should be handed over to the lecturer in the class on the day of your presentation.
