General Questions

1.  What is plagiarism in assessments?

Plagiarism is the act of using someone else's work, ideas, or intellectual property without proper attribution or permission. In the context of assessments, it includes copying code, text, or any other content from external sources without citing them.

2. What is a Project-Based Question?

A project-based question is an assessment task that requires you to complete a real-world project or task rather than answering traditional multiple-choice or short-answer questions. It often involves coding, problem-solving, or practical application of knowledge and skills.

3. What is proctoring?

Proctoring is a way to supervise and monitor candidates during exams to prevent cheating and maintain the fairness and integrity of the assessment. It can involve in-person supervision, live online monitoring, recorded sessions, or automated technology to ensure that candidates follow the rules and don't engage in dishonest behaviour.

4. What Should I Do If I Encounter Technical Issues During an Assessment?

If you encounter technical issues during an assessment, immediately contact support or your instructor, describing the problem in detail. They will provide assistance or make necessary accommodations.

5. What are test cases in coding questions?

In coding, test cases are sets of specific inputs, along with expected outputs or results, that are used to evaluate and verify the correctness and functionality of a piece of code or a program. Test cases help programmers ensure that their code works as intended and that it handles various scenarios and edge cases correctly.
