General Assessment Information

Assessment items

There are four assessment items for this unit. All items must be submitted and a combined mark of at least 50% must be achieved in order for you to be awarded a passing grade for the unit.

Submission

All written assessment items are to be submitted via Turnitin on the unit iLearn site.

Assessment items must be submitted on or before the due date.  Late submissions will attract a penalty of 5% of the available marks for each calendar day late.

 

Assignment extensions and late penalties

Applications for extensions must be made via AskMQ at https://ask.mq.edu.au as a "Disruption to Studies" request before the submission date. Students who experience a disruption to their studies through ill-health or misadventure are able to apply for this request. Extensions can only be granted if they meet the Disruption to Studies policy and are submitted via ask.mq.edu.au. This will ensure consistency in the consideration of such requests is maintained.

In general, there should be no need for extensions except through illness or misadventure that would be categorised as unavoidable disruption according to the University definition of same, and currently available at:

http://students.mq.edu.au/student_admin/exams/disruption_to_studies/

Late submissions without extension will receive a penalty of 5% reduction of the total possible mark for each day late (including weekends and public holidays). You are reminded that submitting even just 1 day late could be the difference between passing and failing a unit. Late penalties are applied by unit convenors or their delegates after tasks are assessed.

No assessable work will be accepted after the return/release of marked work on the same topic. If a student is still permitted to submit on the basis of unavoidable disruption, an alternative topic may be set.

Students should keep an electronic file of all assessments. Claims regarding "lost" assessments cannot be made if the file cannot be produced. It is also advisable to keep an electronic file of all drafts and the final submission on a USB untouched/unopened after submission. This can be used to demonstrate easily that the assessment has not been amended after the submission date.

Academic honesty

The University defines plagiarism in its rules:  "Plagiarism involves using the work of another person and presenting it as one's own." Plagiarism is a serious breach of the University's rules and carries significant penalties.  For more information, please see “Academic Honesty” Policy Central (http://www.mq.edu.au/policy/)

 

The policies and procedures explain what plagiarism is, how to avoid it, the procedures that will be taken in cases of suspected plagiarism, and the penalties if you are found guilty.  Penalties may include a deduction of marks, failure in the unit, and/or referral to the University Discipline Committee

Assessment

Grades for assessment items (and the final grade for the unit) will be allocated according to the following:

High Distinction                                    85-100

Distinction                                             75-84

Credit                                                    65-74

Pass                                                      50-64

Assessment Task  1:

Planning for and with the Creative Arts

 Mindmap

For this task you are to plan a unit of inquiry using Dinham’s six-pointed start template (Chapter 5 from the textbook, ‘Delivering Authentic Arts Education’). Using the topic ‘Australia and me’, the unit will focus on exploring this topic through the creative arts. If you are enrolled in the B.Ed, you will need to consult relevant curriculum and syllabus documents from both the new K-10 syllabuses from the Australian Curriculum and the K-6 syllabuses from NSW. Your planning template should demonstrate your developing understanding of content areas relevant to the topic, eg ‘People and Places’ from the Geography syllabus, or ‘Living World’ from the ‘Science syllabus’. Your template should reflect your developing understanding of the language used in these documents to describe content, knowledge, understanding and skills, values and attitudes and learning outcomes for students.

If you are enrolled in the B.Teach you should consult the Early years Learning Framework (EYLF). Your template should reflect your developing understanding of the Principles, Practices and Outcomes of this document.

Please look at the example provided by Dinham on p. 112 of the textbook, titled ‘Emotional kaleidoscope’, and the student example on iLearn in preparation for this task. You should also read Part 1 (Chapters 1-5) and Part 3 of the textbook

The six-pointed star template from Dinham and her sample mindmap can be found under Assessments on ilearn
