For all assessments, you are expected to bring a completed first draft of the assignment to your tutorial, usually one week before the final submission is due. The draft will be peer-reviewed and edited in the tutorial, following which you have a week to re-write the assignment and produce a final copy for submission and marking.
Peer review will take place in groups, so you MUST bring a printed copy of your draft for each member of your group. Please note that it is not sufficient to bring an electronic copy of your draft, nor is it appropriate to bring an incomplete version. Peer review is a requirement of ACSC100. If you do not bring a draft copy of your assignment to the appropriate tutorial, your mark for that assignment may be reduced by 20%. If you are unable to attend a tutorial in which peer-review is carried out, you MUST submit a formal request to be excused through the ask.mq.edu.au web portal. Supporting documentation (eg a medical certificate) must be provided.
All assignments (except the oral presentation) need to be submitted to Turnitin using the link available on the ACSC100 iLearn website:
Presentation of Assignments
Add a footer to each page of the assignment, with page numbering, student name and student number, and the unit code in the footer, for example:
Matt Smith 40112333 ACSC100
All assignments should be word-processed, double-spaced and printed using black ink. Turnitin will mark the assignment with submission time and date.
Please keep a copy of all assignments in case of misadventure.
Extensions are granted only on grounds of illness or misadventure, and appropriate supporting documentation must be submitted.
If you need an extension, you MUST put in a request through ASK@mq before the due date for the assignment. You need to outline the reason for your request and suggest a new submission date. In suggesting an alternative date, you need to consider what is reasonable, both from your own point of view and from that of your tutor. A request for a two week extension is not likely to succeed!
Late Submission of Assignments
Assignments that are submitted after the due date (without an extension) will attract a penalty of 5% for each day it is overdue (i.e. -5% for 1 day late; -10% for 2 days late; - 15% for 3 days late). Work submitted after the return of marked assignments, and without an extension, will not be accepted.
