Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Work submitted without a cover sheet that includes student ID and Title of the assessment task will not be marked and will incur late penalty when resubmitted. It is the responsibility of the student to check the cover sheet before submitting the essay.
All students are required to submit a draft on URKUND before final submission. Students should submit their draft without the cover sheet and bibliography/reference list. If URKUND report (it may take up to 24 hours to generate a report) indicates that the matching text is above 10%, students are required to pay close attention to the matching text and appropriately reference it. Once the student has revised the essay, it is required to resubmit the essay on Moodle site for final submission. URKUND will generate the report (it may take up to 24 hours to generate a report); students are required to submit the URKUND report along with the hard copy of their essay to the lecturer by the due date.
Any essays with matching text above 10% will not be marked and will incur late penalty when resubmitted.
All assessment items will be submitted online via the unit Moodle site and a hard copy submitted to the lecturer by 5 PM on the due date along with the URKUND report.
All late submissions will incur a penalty of 5% for all additional days including weekends.
**Students are required to pass all assessment tasks to get an overall pass in the unit.

PHASE 1: ASSESSMENT DESIGN
Assessment design and marking rubrics/guides are peer reviewed by a member of the International Studies team alongside the Unit Outline approval process. Final exam designs are moderated by both an IS/ID team member and the HoD.
8766 Assessment Structure: Analytical Response (20%), Group Project (50%), Final Exam (30%)
PHASE II: MARKING & GRADING
 Assessment design and marking rubrics are explained to teaching team prior to being made available to students. Models/exemplars of essays and lit reviews provided and discussed.
 In the marking process, all failing assessment items are identified and double-marked by another member of the teaching team. Double-marking responsibilities are distributed across the teaching team.
 Similarly, samples of all other grade levels (P, CR, DI, HD) are identified by each marker and double-marked by another member of the team. Assessment items awarded marks on the borderline between grades (eg. CR/DI) and given particular focus in this process.
 After all marking and double-marking of a given assessment item has taken place, the teaching team meets for a moderation meeting, reviewing and finalising all marks and discussing any issues that have arisen. Final exams are moderated as part of the final grade moderation meeting.
 Final grades and grade distribution for the unit are discussed in the final moderation meeting. A sample of work at each level is collected/identified for benchmarking purposes.
PHASE III: REVIEW & EVALUATION
Final results and grade distributions are evaluated via (1) meeting of the International Studies/International Development course team, (2) Discipline Assessment Board, and (3) Faculty Assessment Boards.
