This 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.
ARTS3500/ARTX3500 is a Pass/Fail unit. This means that each assessment is a 'hurdle' task that must be completed successfully in order to pass the unit. If an individual assessment is failed, students will be given the opportunity to improve and re-submit their work or given an alternative task to complete in order to pass the hurdle. This unit is ungraded and will not count towards a student's WAM (Weighted Average Mark). Students will instead be awarded either 'Satisfactory' or 'Fail' at the end of the unit.
In cases where students fail to complete one assessment task to a satisfactory level (provided that they have made genuine attempts at both initial and supplementary work on that task), the convenors may provide one further opportunity to re-attempt the task or carry out supplementary work in order to achieve the required learning outcome(s). The convenors will base this decision on a review of the student's work across the unit in consultation with the student's tutor and/or marker.
Note: The Portfolium Preparation, Portfolium Review, and Interview/Presentation assessments will be completed individually. However, the Application task is a group assessment that will be completed as a team. All students will be assigned to a team in Week 1 of the semester. They will be required to stay in their team unless they have an exceptional reason for requesting a change to join another team.
Full details about the assessments will be provided on the unit iLearn site and in class.
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."
As per the policy, assignments submitted more than 7 days after the deadline without approved Special Consideration will not be accepted. However, because ARTS3500/ARTX3500 is a Pass/Fail unit and marks are not assigned, students who submit assignments up to 7 days after the deadline without approved Special Consideration may be required to complete an additional task as a penalty in order to pass the hurdle.
