Late Submission Penalty
Unless a Special Consideration request has been submitted and approved, (a) a penalty for lateness will apply – two (2) marks out of 100 will be deducted per day for assignments submitted after the due date – and (b) no assignment will be accepted more than seven (7) days (incl. weekends) after the original submission deadline. No late submissions will be accepted for timed assessments – e.g. quizzes, online tests.
Quiz #1 - this quiz will be worth 20% of your final grade and covers content from weeks 1 - 5 inclusive.
Quiz #2 - this quiz will be worth 20% of your final grade and covers content from weeks 6 - 10 inclusive.
Participation - There are two components to participation. You will be allocated a tutorial question for which you must write and post a response in the online forum 48hrs BEFORE the allocated tutorial. Your forum post will count for 5% of your participation grade. The remaining 5% of your participation grade will be judged based on your engagement in class throughout the semester. Engagement includes attendance AND participation in discussion and response to tutor questions. To maximise your chances of securing full participation marks you should always have your name clearly displayed in class and should consider attaching a photo to your iLearn profile to assist tutors with name familiarity.
Final Take Home - The final assessment for this course is worth 50% of your total grade and will be undertaken during the exam period. You will have 3 hours allocated to complete the assessment which will include a combination of problem questions, short answers, and essay style responses. The final assessment will be open book and must be submitted electronically in the format proscribed. Details will be provided in week 12.
