Assessment Hurdles

Students are individually assessed and they need to be genuinely contributing to the team effort throughout the semester. So, to pass this unit, a student must achieve 45% or above from each of the two assessment tasks listed below. Each team must also complete a Risk Assessment for their robot to be allowed into the competition.
