Marking criteria and standards
Guidelines on the criteria and standards required for assessment tasks, as well as rubrics where appropriate, will be placed on the iLearn site.
ALL written assignments must be submitted via Turnitin within iLearn. Multichoice quiz components will be administered via the iLearn page.
ALL deadlines are firm unless an extension has been requested in writing one (1) week before the due date. All requests for extensions must be submitted via ask.mq.edu.au and be supported by appropriate documentation. A penalty for lateness (see below) will apply unless a medical certificate or other written substantiation is supplied. Assignments handed in early will not be marked and returned before the due date. Always retain a copy of work you submit in case it is lost in the online system.
Late Submission Penalty
Unless a Special Consideration request has been submitted and approved, (a) a penalty for lateness will apply – 10 marks out of 100* credit will be deducted per day for assignments submitted after the due date – and (b) no assignment will be accepted seven days (incl. weekends) after the original submission deadline.
*"100" is to be understood as 100% of the marks for that task, not the entire unit.
Satisfactory Completion of Unit
In order to complete this unit satisfactorily students must gain a mark of 50% or more, and attempt all assessment tasks.
