Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The laboratory report assesses the record keeping, data gathering and analysis ability of the student. The examination provides the opportunity for the student to demonstrate their understanding of the course material. The problem solving aspects of the assessment enable the student to demonstrate that they are able to apply this understanding and their analysis and synthesis skills to novel situations.
