You will get feedback on your understanding in this course from (i) the Week 6 coursework test, (ii) the Kahoot! and Quizizz quizzes, (iii) during the support classes, (iv) during my office hour, and (v) via the generic feedback (and exam script viewing) on the final exam. This feedback will allow you to gauge your understanding of the material during the course, understand the mark that you got in the assessment, understand how you could do better in the future.
