Students must maintain a satisfactory level of attendance. Attendance below 80% may adversely affect your ability to complete the unit at a satisfactory level.
Required IT skills
Students are expected to have a sound understanding of the PC/Macintosh OS and some familiarity with media and/or graphic design software.
Students should budget approximately $100-$150 for printing of assessment materials. Materials and equipment needed to undertake the projects, such as prints, drawing and model making materials are generally the responsibility of each individual student.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Applications for an extension to the due date for submission of an assessment item on the grounds of illness or other unavoidable and verifiable personal circumstances (that is, special consideration) should be submitted via email to the unit convener. Each application for an extension has to be supported by appropriate documentation. For advice on documentary evidence to support applications for extensions, please refer to the Assessment Guide that supports the Assessment Procedures.
"Students should apply for extensions before the due submission date, and are advised to do so as early as possible. Applications after the due submission date may be considered only in exceptional circumstances" (3.14 Assessment Procedures).
Penalties for late submission or non-completion of mandatory assessment
TAFE Queensland applies the following amendments to the late submission procedures detailed in Section 9.12.48 of the Assessment Policy and Procedures handbook.
All work must be completed and submitted by the due date. Applications for an extension may be made on the grounds of verifiable circumstances and must be submitted formally via email to the unit convener using the Assignment Extension Form. Students should apply for extensions as early as possible before the due date. Applications made after the due date will only be considered under extenuating circumstances.
Work submitted after the due date without an approved extension will be assessed on a pass or fail basis without feedback. Assignments submitted over 7 days late will receive a mark of zero.
