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.
Assessment procedures will follow the established policies of the UC College of Education Assessment Guidelines. Assessment is achievement-based with final results being reported on the College Grading Scale. Student workload will be in-line with other courses within the Bachelor of Teaching and Learning (ECE and Primary)
Students must participate in the course sufficiently to meet the learning outcomes.
All FLO students must attend residential school. This is a compulsory component of your course. This includes on campus students enrolled in the FLO option.
Students will be encouraged to provide ongoing, formative evaluation to course lecturers. The course will also be formally evaluated in accordance with the cycle set out in the qualification Moderation Action Plan and the results reported to the Advisory Committee.
This course will be internally moderated in accordance with the processes adopted by the College of Education. Final Grades will be calculated taking into account the weighting of each assignment. Each grade is allocated a numerical value (from D=1 to A+ =9), this is multiplied by the assignment weighting. The grades are then added and the final grade calculated. An examiners’ meeting will be held at the end of the course to determine final grades and to ensure fairness and consistency.
FLO students – please refer to the Assessment Guidelines for Students.
FLO assignments submitted by hand, email, fax, drop-box or any other online repository after the due date, with no extension granted, are considered late.
FLO assignments submitted by post or courier which are date stamped by the DMA Centre more than two days after the due date are considered 'late'.
Assignment cover and marking sheets and a copy of your Oral Presentation and Te Reo Māori unit assignment,must be submitted to your lecturer by the due date. FLO students send in your copies via the Distance Material & Assignment Centre (DMA Centre). Work cannot be marked if copies of the marking sheets and a copy of your Oral Presentation and Te Reo Māori assignment are not received. As the Oral Presentation and Te Reo Māori assignment are completed in groups of four, please send in one copy of this assignment but both of you need to send in your cover sheets to enable your end of course results sheet to be returned. Please use word processed macrons when spelling Māori words.
Non-standard enrolments: If you are a non-standard enrolment or an on-campus student you must make contact with your lecturer within the first two weeks of semester one. Assessment due dates will need to be checked. Do not assume your assessment due dates are different as this could result in you not passing the course. It is vital that you check with your lecturer. Please also let your lecturer know if you are graduating at mid- year.
These are compulsory sessions. All students must attend residential school 5. This includes on-campus students enrolled in the FLO option. Please bring your course books to residential schools.
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 their Course Lecturer in the first instance. Extensions will not normally be given for longer than two weeks from the due date, unless exceptional circumstances prevail. Extensions are not granted automatically to students.
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, 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. Extensions are unlikely to be granted for an end of course assignment at 300 level as results are due especially for those intending to graduate.
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.
The Oral presentation and Te Reo Māori Unit needs to be completed in a group of four. Each of you needs to send in a copy of the Presentation and your individual components of Te Reo Māori unit assignment for marking. This assignment cannot be completed by yourself. If you get a resubmit then you only have one week to resubmit the Te Reo Māori unit and presentation and the Social Sciences Assignment.
FLO students need to submit their work to the DMA Centre. Work cannot be submitted directly to your lecturer or collected directly from your lecturer it must be processed via the DMA Centre.
