* There is an overlap between the closing date of the earlier module assessment and survey and the first activities of the next module. This allows a "grace period" in which students can complete the assessment. However, it is necessary to complete all module activities on time to receive full grade points. DON'T PROCRASTINATE ON TAKING THE ASSESSMENTS. The work will flow more smoothly if you complete the assessment and survey promptly and move on to the next module without unfinished business.
