All MN601 laboratory reports should be submitted weekly at the end of each laboratory section as individual submissions via Moodle.

Organise and arrange your Moodle folder submission needly. You need to name your files using the weekly laboratory number, your names, and student ID, such as LabWeek10 YourName MITID.

The laboratory activities have two sections, Section A is about Microsoft Project and Section B has a few questions related to project management areas. Thus, it will provide you with a better understanding of the topics.

Do not retype or reuse laboratory questions to avoid high similarities, always aim for 0% similarities for all laboratory reports. For Microsoft Project Section A, when you submit screenshots, please take the whole screenshots of your screen. Ensure your report is different from that of other students and not plagiarised.

Late submissions will result in a loss of 10% marks for each day the report is late.
