The deadline for written assignments will always be 11.55pm Sunday in the week they are due. Written work must be submitted via the Turnitin links on the FOAR7004 iLearn website.
Late Assessment Submission Penalty
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 non-timed sensitive assessment (incl essays, reports, posters, portfolios, journals, recordings etc). Late submission of time sensitive tasks (such as tests/exams, performance assessments/presentations, scheduled practical assessments/labs etc) will only be addressed by the unit convenor in a Special consideration application. Special Consideration outcome may result in a new question or topic.
Late submission penalty: Employability Journal
Students must post a 50-100 word response to the Employability Journal on iLearn by midnight Sunday in Weeks 2-11. Posts submitted by the deadline will automatically receive 1%. Posts made after the deadline will receive zero unless an application for Special Consideration has been approved.
Assignment word limits DO NOT include footnotes or bibliographies. Important note on final marks
