Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Late Policy for this unit
This unit has substantial opportunities for feedback and self-assessment, and so students who have fully participated in the unit activities are unlikely to fail. In some cases, resubmission of a failed assignment will be possible if the assessment item can feasibly be brought up to a pass level. A typical example might be an assignment that fails due to a missing component that can readily be supplied in a resubmission. The maximum grade for a resubmitted assessment item is 50%. Resubmissions are given at the discretion of the unit convenor, and must be applied for in writing (via email) within one week of the assessment grade being released.
All extensions must be applied for in writing to the unit convenor no less than three days before the due date of the assignment, and preferably well before this. Extension requests should state the reason the extension is being requested (unless the basis for extension is part of adjustment advice from inclusion and welfare), and provide a proposed submission date. Students should not assume an extension will be automatically granted.
In this unit, we encourage you to be proactive about your work, to recognise early if you are not going to be able to meet a deadline, and to negotiate an extension if necessary. This is a more authentic, industry standard, approach to dealing with deadlines. As a result, this unit does not apply a penalty of 5% per day, and instead applies a pass/fail policy on late assignments.
Late assignments are assignments that are handed in after the due date and time, or after an agreed extension date. Assignments submitted less than seven days late will be marked on a pass/fail basis (maximum grade of pass, 50%) and will not be provided with any written feedback. This provides strong incentive to get it in on time or negotiate an extension. Assignments that are more than one week late will be deemed to have not been submitted and will receive a non-complete (NC) grade.
This policy is designed to encourage students to take ownership of their work and time commitments, while also allowing for some flexibility. We feel it is far better (and more typical of real work conditions) to seek an extension well before the due date than to hand in a late assignment. We appreciate that there needs to be some flexibility, but we expect all students to manage their time and to keep their tutors informed of any issues with their progress.
Inclusion and engagement
Students with Reasonable Adjustment Plans seeking extensions must apply for the extension ON or BEFORE the due date - not after. Students should not expect extensions to be automatically accepted, it is important to keep in regular contact with your tutor and convenor regarding expected submission dates.
It is essential for students to attend tutorials every week, to keep up with the weekly tasks and assessment requirements and expectations. Students are also expected to check their UC student email and Canvas site for the unit every day for any updates or announcements.
Required IT skills
Knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign). Whilst the unit will go through a series of tutorials to improve the students' technical skills with these programs, it is highly recommended the student spend some time familiarising themselves with the software beforehand.
