Contained in the student Feedback Portfolio is:

  • Copies of weekly assessment tasks and results
  • Copies of pre and post-term assessment tasks
  • Weekly Participation Report that monitors in-class and homework completion
  • End of Term Report.

This Feedback Portfolio is provided free of charge to all students enrolled in a term course, both individual and group format.
