Additional Course Outline Information
All forms of cheating and dishonest practice are taken seriously and penalties will result. Students should refer to Regulation J of the General Course and Examination Regulations.

Time will be set aside for discussion or written comment on the course’s effectiveness in achieving the stated outcomes and meeting student needs. The course will also be formally evaluated in accordance with the cycle set out in the qualification Moderation Action Plan
This course will be internally moderated in accordance with the processes adopted by the College of Education. An examiners’ meeting will be held at the end of the course to determine final grades and ensure fairness and consistency.
Work that is received past the due date is considered late without an extension having been granted. Late work may be accepted up to 10 working days after the due date. Work received after 10 days from the due date will not be marked and will be returned to the student.
The following policy from the College of Education Assessment Guidelines for Students will apply in ADTL 785:
Students are encouraged to plan their work so deadlines are met. Under exceptional circumstances (e.g. illness, accident, bereavement or critical personal circumstances) individual students may be granted an extension of the due date for an assignment. There is, however, a limit to the length of time that an extension can be granted. […] Extensions are not granted automatically to students. A request for an extension should be made before the due date of the piece of assessment, in writing, either by email, fax or letter. [See note below.] If you apply for an extension, you will be asked to supply a medical certificate or other relevant evidence of special circumstances (e.g. a letter from a counsellor). Extensions will not normally be granted because of pressure of university work, e.g. several pieces of work being due at about the same time. Students are encouraged to plan their work in a realistic manner and in advance so that they can meet their assessment deadlines. (p. 4)
NOTE: All requests for extensions in ADTL 785 should be submitted to the course coordinator as soon as possible and no less than 24 hours before the due date.
