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.
The assignments are graded against the University A+ to E scale. Satisfactory completion of each assignment to at least a C grade is required to pass this course.
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.
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.
Grades will be checked by another lecturer at the end of the course to ensure fairness and consistency.
Work submitted past the due date is considered late. Late work may be accepted up to one week after the due date and a grade penalty will be incurred. Late work is not eligible for resubmission. Markers reserve the right not to mark late work.
• 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.

Extensions are reserved for exceptional circumstances only and are not granted automatically. A request for an extension should be made to your Course Lecturer before the due date of the piece of assessment. Requests for extensions 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 (eg 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.

Over 50% of course work must be successfully completed in order to qualify for Aegrotat consideration.
