Students are required to submit all their in-session assessments via the TurnItIn interface on iLearn.
Students who have not submitted the task prior to the deadline will be awarded a mark of 0 for the task. No extensions will be granted, except for cases where a student has a serious and unavoidable disruption to studies. In this case, an application for disruption of studies is required from the student on the ask.mq.edu.au system and needs to be approved by the Lecturer in charge.
The supported statistical software for this unit is R/RStudio. Students will be given guidance on how to use this software and be expected to conduct their analyses using R/RStudio for the in-session assessments. Students should also note that the final examination will involve data analysis that contains inline R code that students need to interpret to answer the exam questions.
Students are advised that it is Macquarie University policy not to set early examinations for individuals or groups of students. All students are expected to ensure that they are available until the end of the teaching semester, i.e. the final day of the official examination period.
The only excuse for not sitting an examination at the designated time is because of documented illness or unavoidable disruption. In these special circumstances you may apply for Disruption to Studies via ask.mq.edu.au. A supplementary examination will only be granted if the student has been found to have had a significant disruption to studies.
If you apply for Disruption to Study for your final examination, you must make yourself available for the week of July 24 – 28, 2017. If you are not available at that time, there is no guarantee an additional examination time will be offered. Specific examination dates and times will be determined at a later date.
Students can submit disruption to studies request(s) through the following link: http://ask.mq.edu.au/
