There is no final exam for this course. Students receive either a complete or incomplete mark based on the projects they have completed, as outlined in the course. Depending on the requirements of the students’ course of study, they may be required to complete one or both projects.

Once the facilitator has ascertained that the tasks have been fully completed, they will sign off on the control sheet.
