If you cannot complete a piece of work please see the convenor before the due date. Check also the Disruption to Studies policy. A more detailed description of each task is given below. Assessment tasks explained
As the table under assessment tasks indicates, there will be 7 assessment tasks.
- Four iLearn multiple choice quizzes
- One main individual assignment.
- One group assignment - individually moderated
- One final examination.
See the Grading section for information on grades and performance criteria.
All assignments and quizzes should be completed or submitted via the online system at http://learn.mq.edu.au/ by the time specified in the assignment description.
All work submitted should be readable and well presented.
Late work will be accepted with a penalty of 10% of the marks for the assignment per day, or part day, submitted late. Hence, an assignment submitted four and a half days late will get at most half the marks. If you cannot submit on time because of illness or other circumstances, please contact the lecturer before the due date.
For this unit, a final examination is fully appropriate to test learning and knowledge of all learning outcomes. In particular, It allows for accurate reflection of the degree of understanding of learning outcomes LO2, LO3 and LO4.
The final examination accounts for 40% of the final mark. The three hour exam will consist of 180 marks and include a series of short answer questions based on theory from the textbook and application from workshops and given scenarios. This exam is a hurdle assessment.
It is a mandatory requirement that students achieve a satisfactory mark in the final examination in order to be able to pass the unit.
Regarding the examination process, note that
- you are expected to present yourself for examination at the time and place designated in the University Examination Timetable
- no early examinations for individuals or groups of students will be set. All students are expected to ensure that they are available until the end of the teaching semester, that is the final day of the official examination period
- 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 Disruption to Studies.
