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.
The Portfolio Preparation and Portfolio Review assessments will be completed individually and based on content covered in our tutorials. The Team Project Application task is a group assessment that will be completed as a team and will be based on content covered in our lectures. The project teams will be formed after census date. The Video presentation will be completed individually but will be based on the team project work, specifically on the problem your team addressed and the solution that you have designed to address this problem.
Full details about the assessments will be provided on the unit iLearn site and in class.
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.
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.
