Tutorial Presentation Grades: Tutorial presentation grades will be available on iLearn, the week following your presentation.
A copy of the assignment must be kept as proof that the assignment was completed and submitted.
Length penalty: A penalty of 5% of the total mark will be deducted for every 100 words over the stipulated length of all written work. This gives an over word limit of 99 words before the penalty is applied.
For example, the Essay is worth 40% of the total mark for the unit. For every 100 words over 1500 words, 2 marks (5% x 40 = 2) will be subtracted from the mark the student receives for the assignment. For an essay 200 words over the 1500 stipulated, 4 marks will be subtracted, etc.
The written report for the tutorial is worth 5% of the total mark for the unit. Therefore, for every 100 words over 500 words a ¼ of a mark (5% of 5 = 0.25) will be subtracted from the mark the student receives for the assignment. For a tutorial report 200 words over the 500 stipulated, ½ a mark will be subtracted, etc.
Late submission penalty: There is a daily (week and weekend days included) late submission penalty of 5% off the total mark.
For example, the essay is worth 40% of the total mark for the unit. For an essay submitted a day after the submission date, 2 marks (5% x 40 = 2) will be subtracted from the mark the student receives for the assignment. For an essay submitted two days after the submission date, 4 marks will be subtracted, etc.
The written paper for the tutorial presentation is worth 5% of the total mark for the unit. Therefore, for a written paper submitted a day after the oral presentation, ¼ of a mark (5% of 5 = 0.25) will be subtracted from the mark the student receives for the assignment. For a written paper submitted two days after the oral presentation, ½ a mark will be subtracted, etc.
Assignment Extension of Time Requests: Ordinarily, no extensions of time for submission of written work will be granted since ample time for preparation will have been given. If an extension is required for medical or other extenuating circumstances, a disruption to studies notification must be submitted with supporting document/s through https://ask.mq.edu.au/ This must be done within five (5) working days of the commencement of the disruption.
The staff in the Student Centre will make all decisions regarding extensions. Neither individual tutors nor the course convenor will grant extensions.
If an extension is granted, you must copy and paste the notice of approval into the front page of your assignment when you submit via iLearn.
The University Examination period in Session 1, is from 12 June to 30th June 2017.
You are expected to present yourself for examination at the time and place designated in the University Examination Timetable. The timetable will be available in Draft form approximately eight weeks before the commencement of the examinations and in Final form approximately four weeks before the commencement of the examinations.
The only exception to not sitting an examination at the designated time is because of documented illness or unavoidable disruption. In these circumstances you may wish to consider applying for Special Consideration. Information about unavoidable disruption and the special consideration process is available at http://www.psy.mq.edu.au/speccond/scrules.htm
If a Supplementary Examination is granted as a result of the Special Consideration process, the examination will be scheduled after the conclusion of the official examination period.
Supplementary Examination in the Department of Psychology will be held on the 14th and 15th of July, 2016. The format of a supplementary examination is at each unit convener’s discretion and is subject to change from the original final examination.
Supplementary Exams are only offered to students who have satisfactorily completed all other assessments for the unit and were unable to sit the final exam because of documented illness or unavoidable disruption.
Instructions on applying for sitting of a supplementary exam are available from the website, www.psy.mq.edu.au/speccond. It is the student’s responsibility to follow the steps outlined in this website. An email will be sent to the student advising them of the outcome of their request for a supplementary exam. If a supplementary exam has been granted, it is the student’s responsibility to check the Department of Psychology Special Consideration website for information relating to the date and location of the supplementary exam. Students who are granted to sit for a supplementary exam must make themselves available to sit for the supplementary exam on the specified date. There will only be one time. It is the student’s responsibility to email Student Centre to confirm attendance at the supplementary exam.
You are advised that it is Macquarie University policy not to set early examinations for individuals or groups of students. All students are expected to ensure that they are available until the end of the teaching semester, which is the final day of the official examination period.
