Submission methods for assessment tasks:
All assignment submissions are soft copy, and return of marks and comments, will be done through the ITEC832 page on iLearn.
Late submission of individual work will incur a 10% penalty for every 24 hours, or part thereof, it is late. So within 24 hours, the maximum mark that can be obtained is 90% of the full grade for that assessment task; between 24 and 48 hours, the maximum mark that can be obtained is 80% of the full grade; and so on. No extra documentation is required unless the student does wish to have an extension (see below) applied.
Late submissions of group based assignments are not permitted unless under exceptional circumstances with documentary evidence provided to the unit convenor which may include medical certificates as per the Department of Computing policy. One person being sick does not mean the group cannot submit work. Students are recommended to have a backup plan for group based submissions.
Extensions and Disruptions:
Extensions without a grade penalty may be provided to individuals who contact student services BEFORE the due date and can provide documentary evidence of illness or other misadventure and succeed in gaining a certified disruption. (Health issues will require a university issued Professional Authority Form.). If approved, a new submission timeline and submission method will be discussed on a case by case basis.
Students are strongly advised to contact the unit convenor as early as possible if there are any issues that will not make an on-time submission possible.
If you apply for Disruption to Study for your final examination, you must make yourself available for the week of July 24 – 28, 2017. If you are not available at that time, there is no guarantee an additional examination time will be offered. Specific examination dates and times will be determined at a later date.
Final Exam (Hurdle):
The final exam will focus on content covered in the classes throughout the semester including all lectures, references and workshops.
As the final examination is a hurdle assessment, you will need a minimum performance of 40% to pass the unit. Your aggregate score must be 50% or above. If you achieve 30 to 39% in the final exam, you will be given a second chance to pass, with a new and different examination.
These second-chance hurdle examinations will also be offered in the week of July 24 - 28. Results will be released on July 13. You will be notified shortly after that date of your eligibility for a hurdle retry and you must also make yourself available during that week to take advantage of this opportunity.
