Submission of assessment items
Use of text matching software
A general encouragement – if you are registered with UC AccessAbility, please consider letting Tony know early in the semester, so that he can provide any assistance you might need.
Education students who may have practicum during the semester, which precludes them from attending their regular tutorial class should, in the first instance, organise to attend another class for that week (several classes start late in the day, out of school hours, and it will be acceptable for education students to attend these alternative classes when needed, although they should notify their regular tutor, the alternative class tutor, and the unit convener ahead of time). In the event that an education student is unable to attend an alternative class, they should contact Tony at least a fortnight ahead of time to organise an alternative assessment for that week.
Students electing the Face-to-face assessment option for assessment item one should note the following:
–This is NOT an attendance mark; simply showing up to the classes but not participating in any meaningful way will get you a score of 0/5 for that class. In order to achieve a passing grade in that assessment you will need to have actively prepared for the class in question (completed all readings, addressed all reflection questions) and be prepared to discuss and debate as required.
–You will not receive marks for classes in which you do not participate; while it is possible to miss (for emergencies, or unforseen circumstances) up to 2 of the book discussion or critical reading classes and still achieve the level of participation required to pass the assessment, you will not under any circumstances be given marks for missed classes.
–Education students who may have practicum during the semester, which precludes them from attending their regular tutorial class should, in the first instance, organise to attend another class for that week (several classes start late in the day, out of school hours, and it will be acceptable for education students to attend these alternative classes when needed, although they should notify their regular tutor, the alternative class tutor, and the unit convener ahead of time). In the event that an education student is unable to attend an alternative class, they should contact Tony at least a fortnight ahead of time to organise an alternative contribution assessment for that week
