The assignments are graded against the University scale A+ to E. Satisfactory completion of the course overall to at least a C grade is required in order to pass the course. Both assignments must be submitted. Final grades for the course will be calculated taking into account the weighting of each assignment. An examiner's meeting will be held at the end of the course to determine final grade and to ensure fairness and consistency.
Attendance at class sessions is expected throughout the course. Insufficient attendance at course sessions may impact on course assessment. 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 course delivery.
The College undertakes a process of internal and external moderation of assessment. This is to ensure that the assessment system is fair, equitable, consistent and manageable.
Please refer to the Assessment Guidelines for Students.
Flo assignments submitted to the drop-box or any other online repository after the due date, with no extension granted, are considered late.
Late work will be accepted up to one week after the due date, and a grade penalty will be incurred. Lecturers reserve the right not to mark late work, and no work will be accepted after assignments been returned.
• Assignment 2 requires practical application of course content in an early childhood centre setting. Students should ensure they have access to a centre.
• Assignments must be word processed in Times New Roman 12 point font with a 5cm left hand margin, 1.5 line spacing.
• Keep a copy of all assignments.
• Participation in two field trips may be required (on campus students only).
• All assignments to be clearly named (surname, first name) and all pages numbered.
Under exceptional circumstances (eg 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 and this should be negotiated with the relevant lecturer in the first instance. Extensions will not normally be given for longer than one week from the due date, unless exceptional circumstances prevail. Extensions are not granted automatically to students.
Requests for extensions should be emailed to the lecturer at least two working days prior to the due date for the assignment. A copy of the lecturer’s email confirming the extension (if granted) and other relevant evidence such as a medical certificate or a letter from a counsellor must be attached to and submitted with the assignment.
Extensions will not normally be granted because of pressure of university study, eg 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.
A resubmitted assignment cannot be awarded more than the minimum passing grade. Resubmissions are restricted to work that is originally submitted on or before the due date. Late assignments are not considered for resubmission unless there are exceptional circumstances.
If work meets most of the criteria required to pass, the student may be given the opportunity to resubmit an assignment to bring it to a passing grade.
All assignments must be submitted to 'Turnitin' through course LEARN site on or before the due date. Information regarding the use of 'Turnitin will be provided.
