This assessment task will be available for you to undertake during an 8-day window from
9AM 14th to 9AM 22nd June 2022.
Where will I find my task?
The link for your assessment task will be located under the Assessment Task 3: Final
Examination, in the Assessment Information section of your Moodle shell
. You will see
this appear in your Moodle shell before the exam period.

The final assessment is worth 100 marks. You are required to complete 5
Questions
.
Study Advice for the final assessment:
• Ideally, you should understand the context or theory and then work through all the tute questions. This
will give you a good understanding of the course and prepare you well for the final assessment.
• Generally, the final assessment questions are along the lines of the tute work. In many cases, they can
be longer or shorter than the tute questions, depending on the allocated marks.
If you review lecture materials + attempt the tute works + follow instruction videos + practice with
excel spreadsheets in Moodle + complete the required reading, you will do well in this final
assessment.
• You must use the provided excel spreadsheet to work on the final assessment questions. It is important
to
practice the tutorial questions with excel spreadsheet. The Sample final assessment is a good
starting point. (Refer to the Sample final assessment below).
The final assessment mainly covers knowledge and skills pertaining to Topics 5, 6, 7, 8 , 9, 10, 11.
• While questions from Chapters 1-4 are not on the assessment, the concepts from these chapters remain
important.
• Many topics are inter-linked.
