Assessments throughout your course can include assignments such as quizzes, tests, oral presentations and essays.
Some assessment items in a course are compulsory, which means if you don't pass or complete these, you fail the course. These could be anything from practicums, to laboratory work or a final exam.
If you need help with an assessment or assignment, find out more about study skills help for exams and assessments.
