Default EOM4 - Quickwich - DNMMR

...

Your Opinion: Is it possible that I DNMMR for the Quickwich assignment because I submitted the Task 1 RCD as an Excel file? Or is this as absurd as I think it is?

...

You most likely failed because you didn't meet the Reqs.

Where are we supposed to quote Segal? Task 1 (the list of risks)?

I did not quote Segal at all but passed the second exercise. I don't think quoting Segal is necessary. I would say on the redo make absolutely sure you completely answer all questions (for example if they ask for 10 risks you give 10 risks) and put them in the format they want ( if they ask for a memo, make sure the answer for that task is in a memo format).

Others have said for the memo part they did not do the whole executive summary,data,conclusion, etc. format and they passed. Did you do those?
Your redo was a variation of the original? (if you are not allowed to answer then don't)

Content wise no I don't think the redo assignment I submitted for module 4 was substantially different than what was in original submission (except it was obviously for a different scenario, but very similar types of tasks). From my experience, FAP grading seems to depend a lot on the grader who is looking at your work and how nit picky they may be feeling that particular day.

In terms of the memo, no I don't think it asks for a formal memo with executive summary, data, conclusion, etc. so I just did informal memos making sure to address all of the points necessary.

If it's not the kind of full memo that we did in EOM1, what kind of sections did you have in the "informal memo"?
