The Assessment 1 quiz will contain 20 questions which will be either/or a combination of multiple choice, true/false or short answer questions (predominantly multiple choice). The questions relate to the textbook chapters as follows: Ch17 – 5 questions, Ch18 – 5 questions, Ch19 – 5 questions, Ch15 – 5 questions. Please refer to the marking scheme below for details of the grading of this assessment.
You will need a calculator as some of the questions may be practical.
The quiz is timed for sixty (60) minutes. Please pay particular attention to the time and ensure that you submit BEFORE your allocated time limit is up, otherwise you will be scored zero for the quiz.
You can only attempt the online quiz once. Each question can only be attempted once. You cannot start the quiz and then exit, and come back to it later. You must finish the quiz once you have started it. You cannot print out the quiz prior to completing it.
The quiz must be completed individually. The questions are randomly generated so that all students should complete the quiz with different questions. Each question can also be generated with a different set of values and figures, so that each quiz is unique for each student.

Points to Note:
• You should be able to complete this quiz after you have completed the work in Week 4. You will need to have completed all work up to and including Week 4 before you can complete the quiz successfully. This means that it is possible to complete the quiz up to two weeks earlier than the due date. You are encouraged to complete the quiz early, as NO extensions are able to be granted in WileyPlus. If you do not submit on time, you will score a zero (did not submit) for this assessment.
• The quiz MUST BE completed electronically through WileyPlus. As specified in the Course Profile, it is a course requirement that you have access to WileyPlus as part of your textbook purchase. You will find in Moodle that there is a powerpoint presentation on how to use WileyPlus, prepared by the textbook publishers.
• Ensure that you complete the assignment BEFORE the due date, as there is no possibility for an extension in WileyPlus. Make sure you familiarise the due date this term as it may have changed to that in previous terms (and may be different to those mentioned in the recorded lectures from previous terms). You should use the due dates set in the Course Profile for this term only.
• You will have immediate feedback about your result in WileyPlus. You do not have to enter anything into Moodle – your result from WileyPlus will be transferred to Moodle by the Course Coordinator after the due date.
