Unit description Unit description
This unit focuses attention on curriculum and pedagogical approaches to teaching and learning with children from birth to two years. The unit introduces students to research relating to how infants and toddlers learn and the role of intentional teaching in promoting learning and development. Students will engage in a critical analysis of curriculum approaches, relationship-based teaching and learning, and environmental contexts that are recommended for infants and toddlers. The unit will culminate in the planning and documentation of an effective learning environment for children in this age group.

  • ULO4: Draw on contemporary literature and real-world experience to demonstrate an reflective, evidence-based understanding of the role of the early childhood teacher in supporting the learning and development of infants and toddlers.

General Assessment Information

Full instructions for each assignment, including the assessment criteria can be found in the assignment guide attached to the ECHE3110 iLearn site.

Unit Expectations: 

  • All assignments must be submitted and must demonstrate a serious attempt to address the assessment task and criteria
  • Students are expected to attend at least 80% of their tutorial sessions  
  • Students are required to read weekly readings, listen to weekly lecture and complete associated tasks before attending tutorials

Failure to meet any of the requirements listed above will place students at serious risk of failing the unit.

EXPECTED ACADEMIC LITERACY LEVEL

As a 3000-level unit, students are expected to demonstrate a fully functional level of academic literacy in their assignment work. The expectation levels are listed below. Students whose work does not meet these standards are at serious risk of failing the unit.

Students will receive feedback on their demonstrated level of academic literacy in assignment 1. Students who fail to meet the minimum standards for assignment 2 and 3 will receive a fail grade for that assignment.

Note that work that breaches the Macquarie University academic honesty policy (see Academic honesty and plagiarism section below) will attract significant deductions in marks and may, in some cases, be referred to the Faculty academic honesty committee for consideration. Penalties may apply beyond those specified above.

 

 

Key academic literacy skill

Expected level of performance

 

 

Assignment requirements are addressed using a satisfactory level of academic written expression, appropriate to the genre of the assignment.

Each required part of the assignment has been addressed.

The assignment is generally well structured, demonstrating logically organised ideas and concepts.

There may be minor spelling or grammatical errors which make the meaning unclear in small portions of the assignment.

The assignment complies with the specified word limit.

Unit readings and other appropriate academic sources are used to support the views expressed in assignments  

Relevant infant-toddler curriculum and pedagogy academic sources, including the set unit readings, have been used to support the ideas expressed in the work.

The assignment shows an ability to identify the key arguments in the required readings and relate these to the topic in question.

APA 6th / 7th referencing style is used to correctly acknowledge sources through in-text citations and a reference list. 

A consistent effort has been made to use the APA 6th or 7th referencing and citation style. There may be a few style errors and/or some inconsistencies that will need to be addressed in future assignments.

All consulted sources have been acknowledged through in-text citations and included in the reference list.

Quoted material has been appropriately represented in quotation marks, with in-text citations to correctly identify the source.

PRESENTATION AND SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

  • Students must regularly save a copy of all assignments before submission,
  • Unless there are exceptional circumstances (see special consideration below), no assessment will be accepted more than one week (including weekends) after the due date.
  • If an assessment is considered to be below passing standard, another staff member on the unit will provide a second opinion. No failed assessment may be re-submitted. 

Assignment presentation and submission

All written submissions are to be legible and professionally presented. Please follow these guidelines when you submit each assignment:

  • All assignments must include the academic honesty declaration as required by all Macquarie University students.
  • Assignments must represent the student’s individual work (see Academic Honesty section below).
  • Please type all assignments using 12 point font and 1.5 or double-space the lines. Save your file in .doc, .docx or pdf format.
  • Allow a left and right-hand margin of at least 2.5cm in all assignments. This allows us to attach, and you to read your feedback comments easily.
  • All assessments must be submitted through Turnitin in .doc or .pdf format for submission.
  • It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all assessments are successfully submitted through Turnitin.
  • Use APA 6th or 7th referencing style to acknowledge your sources and support your ideas with in-text referencing, and include a full reference list of all works that are cited within your assignment.

Draft Submissions & Turnitin Originality Reports

  • You may use Turnitin’s Originality Report as a learning tool to improve their academic writing if this option is made available in the Unit.

Final Submissions

  • You are responsible for checking that your submission has been successful and has been submitted by the due date and time. Do not contact staff asking them to check your submission.
  • Late submissions due to last minute technical difficulties may incur a lateness penalty.
  • Your assignment will be marked based on what is received – any omissions or submission errors cannot be corrected after the submission date. Please check very carefully.

Word limit

All sections of the assignment, apart from references and appendices, are included in the word limit.  If your assignment seriously exceeds the word limit (more than 10% over), it will be marked only to the point at which the word limit is reached. 

Academic honesty and plagiarism

The nature of scholarly endeavour, dependent as it is on the work of others, binds all members of the University community to abide by the principles of academic honesty.

Plagiarism is a matter of particular importance. Plagiarism is defined as using the work or ideas of another person and presenting this as your own without clear acknowledgement of the source of the work or ideas. This includes, but is not limited to, any of the following acts:

  • copying out part(s) of any document or audio-visual material or computer code or website content without indicating their origins;
  • using or extracting another person's concepts, experimental results, or conclusions;
  • summarising another person's work;
  • submitting substantially the same final version of any material as another student in an assignment where there was collaborative preparatory work;
  • use of others (paid or otherwise) to conceive, research or write material submitted for assessment; and
  • submitting the same or substantially the same piece of work for two different tasks (self-plagiarism).

The University’s Academic Honesty Policy can be found on the Policy Central website: http://www.mq.edu.au/policy/index.html

TURNITIN is used to assist students with appropriate referencing and paraphrasing, and to detect plagiarism. The system also serves as a digital repository if anything should happen to your hard copy submission or personal backup. Please ensure you have stated your TURNITIN receipt number on your coversheet. A link to TURNITIN is embedded in iLearn. 

Extensions and Late Assignments

Applications for extensions must be made via AskMQ at https://ask.mq.edu.au as a Special Consideration request before the submission date. Students who experience a disruption to their studies through ill-health or misadventure are able to apply for this request. Extensions can only be granted if they meet the Special Considerations policy and are submitted via https://ask.mq.edu.au/. This will ensure consistency in the consideration of such requests is maintained.

In general, there should be no need for extensions except through illness or misadventure that would be categorised as unavoidable disruption according to the University definition of same, see:  https://students.mq.edu.au/study/my-study-program/special-consideration

Late submissions without extension will receive a penalty of 2% reduction of the total possible mark for each day late (including weekends and public holidays). Late penalties are applied by unit convenors or their delegates after tasks are assessed. No assignment will be accepted more than seven (7) days (incl. weekends) after the original submission deadline. 

No assessable work will be accepted after the return/release of marked work on the same topic. If a student is still permitted to submit on the basis of unavoidable disruption, an alternative topic may be set. 

Students should keep an electronic file of all assessments. Claims regarding "lost" assessments cannot be made if the file cannot be produced. It is also advisable to keep an electronic file of all drafts and the final submission on a USB untouched/unopened after submission. This can be used to demonstrate easily that the assessment has not been amended after the submission date.

Requesting a remark of an assignment

If you have evidence that your task has been incorrectly assessed against the grade descriptors you can request a re-mark.  To request a re-mark you need to contact the unit convenor within 7 days of the date of return of the assignment and provide a detailed assessment of your script against the task criteria. Evidence from your assignment must be provided to support your judgments.

Note: Failed assessments can not be re-submitted as they are all double-marked as a part of the moderation process.

Also note: The outcome of a re-mark may be a higher/lower or unchanged grade. Grades are standards referenced and effort is NOT a criterion.

Grading Information

The University recognises the importance of producing grades and reports of student learning achievements that are valid, reliable and accurate representations of each student’s capabilities in relation to clearly articulated learning outcomes. Your final result for this unit will include a grade plus a standardised numerical grade (SNG).
