The design of this course requires your attendance and active participation at all sessions. If you miss any sessions you may be required to complete a catch up task. If you are absent without reasonable excuse for two or more sessions, you risk a grade point deduction or course failure. You must notify your lecturer prior to an absence.
For FLO students ‘attendance and active participation’ is required at residential school and online.
Keep your lecturer informed about circumstances, which may affect your attendance or course work. For example, illness, personal difficulties.
Teaching and courses will be monitored through the regular use of UCTL evaluative instruments.
Students will be asked to provide written comment (anonymous if desired) at the end of the course outlining:
• aspects of the course that were most useful, and
• aspects of the course that could be improved.
Grades awarded are verified in accordance with School of Māori, Social and Cultural Studies in Education procedures.
Work is late if it is handed in after the due date without an extension having been granted. Lecturers reserve the right not to mark work handed in after this date. Students should be aware that resubmits may not be granted on late work.
No assignments will be accepted once assignments have been returned.
Work submitted should be of a professional standard and APA referencing used where appropriate
Extensions are not granted automatically to students. Under exceptional circumstances e.g. illness, bereavement or critical personal circumstances) individual students may be granted an extension to the due date of an assignment.
A request for an extension is made to the course co-ordinator before the due date of an assignment. Extension requests must be made in writing by email, fax or letter and a medical certificate or other relevant evidence of special circumstances (e.g. a letter from a counsellor) must be included.
If granted extensions will not exceed 10 working days. No assignments will be accepted once assignments have been returned.
In the event that an assignment has met most but not all of the required outcomes a resubmit may be granted. An assignment which has been resubmitted cannot be awarded a grade higher than the minimum passing grade. Late assignments are not eligible for a resubmit. An assignment can only be resubmitted once.
Timetable for Resubmits:
A maximum of one week or five working days to resubmit the assignment is given from the day the assignment is returned unless other arrangements are requested and granted by the lecturer.
All students will submit their work to the Academic Services Team in Orakipaoa College Office for Assignment 1. The Te Reo Māori proficiency test will be completed on line.
