Student Code of Conduct
Macquarie University students have a responsibility to be familiar with the Student Code of Conduct: https://students.mq.edu.au/study/getting-started/student-conduct
Results published on platform other than eStudent, (eg. iLearn, Coursera etc.) or released directly by your Unit Convenor, are not confirmed as they are subject to final approval by the University. Once approved, final results will be sent to your student email address and will be made available in eStudent. For more information visit ask.mq.edu.au or if you are a Global MBA student contact email@example.com
Policies for case analysis submissions: All students must submit all case summaries on iLearn through the designated link appropriate to their enrolment by the due date. After the due date (i.e., the beginning of the seminar appropriate to enrolments) the link will be locked and will no longer accept submissions. As a unit policy, no email submission is accepted. Hence, it is students' responsibility to submit the summaries by the due date to avoid any penalties. See penalties for the consequence of failing to submit a summary.
At the end of weeks 7 and 13, students can find a file on iLearn that includes their student ID and a case name. Thereby, each student will be randomly assigned to completing a case analysis. For details of the due dates and post dates, see the Turnitin links on iLearn.
Extensions: No extension will be granted unless a student has an approved special consideration.
Late submissions must also be submitted through Turnitin. No extensions will be granted. Late submissions are subject to 10% penalty for every 24 hours up to 72 hours. After 72 hours, the submission link will be locked.
This penalty does not apply for cases with an approved application for Special Consideration. Note: applications for Special Consideration Policy must be made within 5 (five) business days of the due date and time.
Penalties: Students who miss a case summary and are assigned to do the same case analysis whose summary they have failed to submit will incur a 50% penalty off of the total mark (i.e., final mark – 15). Students who happen to change the summary will incur a 25% penalty off of the total mark (i.e., final mark – 7.5).
