We expect 100% attendance but if there are any issues, please send us an email in advance of the class to let us know. Students need to read the literature thoroughly to enable a useful discussion.
Requirement to pass the unit
To pass the unit, the average mark across the three assessments needs to be 50% or higher. It is not a requirement to score a mark of 50% or higher for every assignment. It is, however, expected that all three assessments are attempted and submitted online.
Late submission of an assignment will attract a penalty of 10% of the maximum mark for every day that the assignment is late (including weekend days). For example, if the assignment is worth 40 marks and your assignment is submitted 2 days late, a penalty of 2x10%x40 = 8 marks will be applied and subtracted from the awarded mark for the assignment. Work submitted more than 7 days after the submission deadline will not be marked and will receive a mark of 0. Please note that it is the student’s responsibility to notify the University of a disruption to their studies and that requests for extensions for assignments must be made via the University’s Ask MQ System (as outlined in the Disruption to Studies Policy).
