Attendance It is vitally important for all students to attend all the seminars for this unit either in face-to-face or online formats . Seminars deliver critical unit content central to meeting the learning outcomes in the course. Seminars provide time for students to discuss ideas with each other and at times to develop work in groups, and through that process develop networks, explore different perspectives, and gain collaborative skills. Seminars also facilitate time for students to access the assistance of the convenor and allows students to benefit from feedback on their work.
Independent Work Students are expected to work independently outside of scheduled seminar times when they are working on all assessments. For example, students in this course will need to do their own reading of relevant texts and at times liase and work with group members outside scheduled class time.
Assessment standards Assessment standards which are used to evaluate students' work in the assessment tasks are laid out in the assessment rubrics. Detailed information will be provided in class and available from iLearn.
Referencing Style The preferred referencing style for this unit is APA. Other styles such as Harvard may be used as long as all necessary information is provided and a consistent approach is taken.
Electronic Submissions Assessments for this unit are to be submitted online via 'Turnitin' which can be accessed through the MMCC8030 iLearn website. Detailed information will be provided in class and available from iLearn.
Feedback Feedback will be given to students in seminars in face-to-face and online formats, and also in the form of text comments in Turtinin. Students can also book a Zoom consultation via email, and can contact the convenor directly via email or through the contact teaching staff direct private link on the ilearn page.
Specifically for the Demo Day assessment feedback will be delivered in the seminars in face-to-face and online formats and via Turnitin for the group presentation (weighting of 30% of the assessment), and via Turnitin for the individual report (weighting of 70% of the assessment). Whole class feedback will also be delivered in a report debrief in the seminars in face-to-face and online formats. For the Creative Start-Ups Dossier assessment feedback will be delivered via Turnitin and also whole class feedback will be delivered in a debrief in the seminars in face-to-face and online formats.
Late Submission Penalty
Please note that the University and the Faculty of Arts have launched a new assessment policy effective as of 1 July 2021. This new policy particularly affects LATE SUBMISSION OF ASSIGNMENTS.
The Faculty policy in relation to late assessment submissions is as follows:
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. No late submissions will be accepted for timed assessments – e.g. quizzes, online tests, etc.
To be very clear:
Unless you have applied for special consideration and had your application approved, for each day your assignment is late, 10 marks will be deducted. For example, if you submit your assignment 7 days late, 70 marks will be deducted, which means you will fail that assignment. If your assignment is more than 7 days late (including weekends), you will get 0 for your assignment. These are serious penalties that will substantially alter your final grade and even determine whether you pass or fail this unit. Please make every effort to submit your assignment by the due date.
If you find you cannot submit your assignment on time, please apply for Special Consideration through AskMQ. Make sure you read Macquarie University's policy regarding Special Consideration requests before you apply:
