Further instructions for each assessment task are available on the unit's iLearn page.
Students are advised that all assessments in this unit are 'hurdle' assessments, which means that each assessment task must be completed at a Satisfactory level (to the standard prescribed for each assessment task) in order to pass this unit as follows:
- Quizzes for Task 1 must achieve a score of 100% correct.
- All criteria set out in the grading rubric for Task 2 (Core Skills Assignment) must be ticked off as Satisfactory.
- Legal Research Quizzes (Task 3) and Foundations of Law Quiz (Task 6) must each achieve a minimum score of 75% correct.
- Tasks 4 (group wiki) & 5 (group presentation) must each achieve a result of Satisfactory for both individual contributions to group work and collective work as assessed by the tutor against grading criteria.
The deadline for submission of supplementary work where students have failed to demonstrate learning outcomes to achieve a hurdle requirement will be one week following the above deadline for online quizzes (Tasks 1, 3 and 6) and two weeks from the return of written work (Task 2). Students who fail to achieve a satisfactory result for Tasks 4 and/or 5 will receive instructions on supplementary at the end of the teaching period.
In cases where students fail to complete one assessment task at a Satisfactory level (provided that they have made genuine attempts at both initial and supplementary work on that task), the Convenor may provide one further opportunity to reattempt the task or carry out supplementary work in order to achieve the required learning outcome(s). The Convenor will base this decision on a review of the student's work across the unit in consultation with the student's tutor(s) and/or marker(s).
The Faculty of Arts Late Submission Policy requires that: “Unless a Special Consideration request has been submitted and approved, (a) a penalty for lateness will apply – 10 marks out of 100 will be deducted per day for assignments submitted after the due date – and (b) no assignment will be accepted seven (7) days (incl. weekends) after the original submission deadline." No late submissions will be accepted for timed assessments – e.g. quizzes, online tests. Please note that this rule applies to the due date of applicable assessment tasks in this unit; the rule does not apply to a subsequent deadline prescribed for an assessment task for the purpose of completing supplementary work or re-attempts of online quizzes in order to satisfy hurdle requirements.
This unit is ungraded and will not count towards a student's LAWS WAM (Weighted Average Mark in LAWS units) . Students will be awarded 'Satisfactory' or 'Fail' at the end of the unit.
