Assessment 2 is approximately 2500 words and is worth 55% of the final course grade. It has two parts: Part A and Part B.
• Part A involves developing a poster following a template based on for your work in Assignment 1. It is 2000-word equivalent. The word 'equivalent' means the exact word count is NOT assessed. Students should focus on answering questions in Part A adequately.
