Submission of assessment items
Supplementary assessment will usually only be offered to students who have failed a single unit in their final semester with a final mark between 45-49% and the unit is required for course completion.
Use of text matching software
Your total mark is calculated as a weighted average of your mark for each assessment item according to the weightings given above.
Grades are calculated from your total mark using the university's standard grading schema:
|Pass (P)||50 — 64|
|Credit (CR)||65 — 74|
|Distinction (DI)||75 — 84|
|High Distinction (HD)||85 — 100|
|Weekly lecture attendance or listening||2 hours/week (12 weeks)||24|
|Weekly computer lab attendance||1 hour/week (11 weeks)||11|
Online computer labs - preparation and quiz
|3 hours/week (11 weeks)||33|
|Weekly study commitments in addition to the 3 items above||4 hours/week (12 weeks)||48|
|6 online quizzes||each with approximately 3.5 hours preparation and 2 hours quiz||34|
Your participation in online activities will enhance your understanding of the unit content and therefore the quality of your assessment responses. Lack of participation may result in your inability to satisfactorily pass assessment items.
It is expected that you will attend one-hour virtual computer lab each week, and that you attend or listen to the lecture recordings.
As per the University's policy students are expected to be availa ble for all assessment items held during the semester, including the examination period.
