Students must attend and participate in the course sufficiently to meet the learning outcomes. Insufficient (less than 80%) attendance in a course may make the student ineligible for teaching practice. Attendance is compulsory at specified sessions.
Formal and informal evaluation will take place in accordance with the relevant Course Evaluation Policy, to provide feedback to teaching staff about the relevance and validity of what has been learned, as well as the quality of the course delivery.
The College undertakes a process of internal and external moderation of assessment. This is to ensure that the assessment systrem is fair, equitable, consistent and manageable.
Work handed in after the due date with no extension granted is considered late. Late work may be accepted up to one week after the due date, and a penalty grade will occur. Lecturers reserve the right not to mark late work, and no work will be accepted after assignments have been returned. Late work is not eligible for resubmission.
• Assignments must be word processed in black ink, in Times New Roman 12 point font with at least 1.5 line spacing, printed single-sided and stapled in the corner.
• Every page must be named and numbered.
• Do not use clear file folders to present your work.
• Keep a copy of all work.
Students are required to complete an assignment cover sheet and staple this to the front of every assignment (including resubmitted work).
Extensions are reserved for exceptional circumstances only and are not granted automatically. A request for an extension should be emailed to the Course Lecturer at least two days prior to the due date for the assignment.
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 study, 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 they can meet their assessment deadlines.
If your work meets most of the criteria required to pass, you may be given the opportunity to resubmit the assignment to bring it to a passing standard. Only one resubmission is possible within the course. Students will have one week from the return of an assignment, to resubmit their work. For the resubmitted assessment to be marked, the original work and marking sheet must be attached to the resubmitted version.
A resubmitted assignment cannot be awarded more than a minimum passing grade (C-). Resubmissions are restricted to work that is originally submitted on or before the due date. Late assignments are not normally considered for resubmission unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Students submit their assignments into the "assignment box" at 16 Bell Street and marked assignments are returned to the students file in the classroom.
