Marks and grades
Marks for the test and examination
Students will receive a mark for the test and the examination which will be converted to a percentage score.
Final course grade
TEDU 110 final grades will be reported using the College of Education's 10-point grading scale (no C- grade). The course grading scale is therefore: A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, D and E.
Lectures are held on Mondays, 3.10 to 4.00 p.m., and Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4.10 p.m. to 5.00 p.m. All lectures are held in lecture theatre C1 located at Ilam Campus. Attendance at lectures is expected for all campus students because the main content of the course is conveyed in lectures. If you are absent from the lecture, you should arrange to copy the notes taken by someone who did attend.
Distance students will have the opportunity to listen to audio recordings which summarise the key points of each lecture.
It is essential that students familiarise themselves with the University website known as Learn. All course information such as the weekly programme of work, assessment information, additional readings, teaching resources, notices and links to useful sites will be available on the course website.
All courses for which students are enrolled can be assessed via the web by logging in to http://www.learn.canterbury.ac.nz. Log into Learn by typing in your user name and password in the login block on the right hand side of the screen. Once you are logged in, go to the main menu block on the left hand side of the screen and click on Learn help resources. This will take you to a new screen where on the left hand side you will see a course menu block. Click on start here. In the centre of your screen you will see a "Student Getting Started Guide" and a "Student Quickstart Guide" (in blue) which has key information and tips on how to use the Learn site for your course work. If problems are encountered, the people at the IT helpdesk are very helpful and can be contacted on 364-2060 or ext 6060 from a campus phone.
Campus students are required to participate in four 2 hour tutorials during the following weeks: Week 4 (14-18 March), Week 6 (29 March - 1 April), Week 9 (9-13 May) and Week 11 (23-27 May).

An aegrotat application can be made for impaired performance or in cases where students are unable to complete an assessment due to illness or other exceptional circumstances. An application for an aegrotat consideration needs to be made in writing to the Associate Registrar (International/Student Services) within 7 days of the test or examination. Application forms are available on line. Students are required to meet the following criteria in order for an aegrotat to be applied for consideration of their final mark:
1. Have completed at least 50% of all assessment for the course.
2. Only one piece of assessed work (worth no more than 50% of the course) will be considered*
3. Students must have an average of C+ or better on all other pieces of assessed work in the course.

Aegrotat considerations are made at a meeting of all Examiners following the end of the course examination period.
