If you cannot complete a piece of work please see the convenor before the due date. Check also the Disruption to Studies policy. A more detailed description of each task is given below.
As the table under assessment tasks indicates, there will be 7 assessment tasks.
- Four iLearn multiple choice quizzes
- One main individual assignment.
- One group assignment - individually moderated
- One final examination - closed book on all lecture and workshop material.
All assignments and quizzes should be completed or submitted via the online system at http://learn.mq.edu.au/ by the time specified in the assignment description.
All work submitted should be readable and well presented.
Late work will be accepted with a penalty of 10% of the marks for the assignment per day, or part day, submitted late. Hence, an assignment submitted four and a half days late will get at most half the marks. If you cannot submit on time because of illness or other circumstances, please file for a Disruption to Studies .
Final Exam (Hurdle):
The final exam will focus on content covered in the classes throughout the semester including all lectures, references and workshops.
As the final examination is a hurdle assessment, you will need a minimum performance of 40% in the exam to pass the unit. If you achieve 30 to 39% in the final exam, you will be given a second chance to pass, with a new and different examination.
If you receive special consideration for the final exam, a supplementary exam will be scheduled in the interval between the regular exam period and the start of the next session. By making a special consideration application for the final exam you are declaring yourself available for a resit during the supplementary examination period and will not be eligible for a second special consideration approval based on pre-existing commitments. Please ensure you are familiar with the policy prior to submitting an application. You can check the supplementary exam information page on FSE101 in iLearn (bit.ly/FSESupp) for dates, and approved applicants will receive an individual notification one week prior to the exam with the exact date and time of their supplementary examination.
If you are given a second opportunity to sit the final examination as a result of failing to meet the minimum mark required, you will be offered that chance during the same supplementary examination period and will be notified of the exact day and time after the publication of final results for the unit.
