Instructions on the Final-Project Report (FPR)

You should be aware from the outset that the report and your explanation of your work is the primary evidence used in the assessment, and it is the assessment of your abilities to conduct and deliver a project that is key. Any software product or model or artefact that you may have produced during your project is not the focus of the assessment. In an extreme case, a student that submits a well-crafted piece of work, but fails to submit a report into how it was produced, will fail. The project module is about assessing your abilities as a student in your discipline area.
