Assessment Criteria and Grading
There are three assessment tasks for this course. All must be successfully completed in order for you to pass.
Assignments will be graded as:
HD 80 - 100%
DI 70 - 79%
CR 60 - 69%
PA 50 - 59%
NN 0 - 49%
Assignments will be assessed according to the detailed guidelines provided. On completion of each project you will be provided with detailed feedback on how well the guidelines were addressed.
The satisfactory completion of all projects on the specified dates will be necessary to meet the requirements for final assessment.
All deadlines must be adhered to. Failure to do so may result in work not being assessed or may incur percentage penalties unless special consideration has been granted. All projects must be submitted to gain a pass in the course.
Difficulty in completing assignments by due dates must be discussed with your lecturer: work up to one week late will incur a penalty of 10% deducted off the grading. Work without special consideration, that is more than one week late will incur a deduction of 50%.
University Plagiarism Statement
Students are reminded that cheating, whether by fabrication, falsification of data, or plagiarism, is an offence subject to university disciplinary procedures. Plagiarism in oral, written or visual presentations is the presentation of the work, idea or creation of another person, without appropriate referencing, as though it is one's own. Plagiarism is not acceptable. The use of another person's work or ideas must be acknowledged. Failure to do so may result in charges of academic misconduct which carry a range of penalties including cancellation of results and exclusion from your program. Students are responsible for ensuring that their work is kept in a secure place. It is also a disciplinary offence for students to allow their work to be plagiarised by another student. Students should be aware of their rights and responsibilities regarding the use of copyright material.
