Please note: All assessment items will be submitted through the University of Florida unit site. Please contact your online instructor if you have any questions regarding assessment items.
By submitting your work online through the University of Florida unit website you are certifying that:
- the attached assignment is my own work and no part of this work has been written for me by any other person except where such collaboration has been authorised by the lecturer/s concerned;
- material drawn from other sources has been fully acknowledged as to author/creator, source and other bibliographic details according to unit-specific requirements for referencing; and
- no part of this work has been submitted for assessment in any other unit in this or another Faculty except where authorised by the lecturer/s concerned.
Special assessment requirements
An aggregate mark of 50 % is required to pass the unit. The final mark for this subject will be calculated by an accumulation of marks from each assessment item.
You should apportion your time according to the assessment weightings. For example, the Quizzes are worth 2% each and so you should be devoting approximately 2% x 150 hours = 3 hours to each quiz. The essay is worth 25% and so you should devote approximately 25% x 150 hours = 37.5 hours to this.
As this is a fully online unit, participation and engagement in online discussions with your instructor and classmates is an important part of student learning and all students are encouraged to actively engage with this unit. 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. Note that participation in online discussions is a required assessment item.
