The unit is worth 10 credit points, which equates to 150 hours of work; therefore, you should expect to commit an average of 10 hours of your time per week to this unit including all scheduled and unscheduled activities as well as preparing and executing the assessment tasks.
Late submission penalty
The University's late submission policy is as follows: Unless a Special Consideration request has been submitted and approved, a 5% penalty (of the total possible mark) will be applied each day a written assessment is not submitted, up until the 7th day (including weekends). After the 7th day, a mark of ‘0’ (zero) will be awarded even if the assessment is submitted. Submission time for all written assessments is set at 11.55pm. A 1-hour grace period is provided to students who experience a technical issue.
This late penalty will apply to written reports and recordings only. Late submission of time sensitive tasks (such as tests/exams, performance assessments/presentations, scheduled practical assessments/labs) will be addressed by the unit convenor in a Special consideration application. Special consideration outcome may result in a new question or topic.
