Group task - putting planning principles into practice
This assignment is a mixture of group and individual assessment. There is class-time dedicated to this task so that your group has an opportunity to work together on the assignment. Please note that 50% of the mark for the 'putting planning principles into practice task' is individually assessed. The individual component of the task requires you to submit a 500-word summary of three readings that you have individually selected and analysed for the group project - this should be written in your own words and reflect your unique contribution to the development of the planning principles. You will be required to submit your written summary to Turnitin in iLearn by 9am on Monday in Week 13.
The remaining 50% of the group project mark will be based on the quality of the group project and the presentation of your planning principles. The group projects must be ready to present in class by 9:30am in Week 13.
Three quizzes each worth 10% will be given in Weeks 2, 4 and 9. The quizzes will be a mix of multiple choice and short format answers. The quizzes are time sensitive tasks that will start in class and be available for a limited amount of time on iLearn. No late submissions will be accepted for quizzes unless you have an approved special consideration request.
Handing in your assignments
Unless otherwise specified, you are required to submit your assignments by the time and date provided in this Unit Guide via the Turnitin link provided in iLearn. Please keep an electronic copy of your assignment and a record of your submission for reference. If you are having trouble submitting your assessment to Turnitin, please contact Donna immediately.
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.
