Due to the student centred and workshop type nature of most classes we recommend that students attend all sessions.  This will ensure that students can make sense of course progressions and do not miss vital information. If a student is unable to attend a lecture then it is expected that an email will be sent to the lecturer informing them of the absence.


Students will be asked to complete course and teacher evaluations, using the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring surveys. Survey responses are conducted electronically and are confidential. The Faculty of Education will conduct regular graduate surveys.

Grade moderation

All course assessments in the Bachelor of Education (Physical Education) are internally and externally moderated. A sample of your work may be used as part of this moderation process. Regular examiners meetings monitor the distribution of final grades in courses and adjustments are made if necessary to ensure reasonable consistency and comparability of course grades.

Late submission of work

An assessment is late if it is handed in after the due date, without a formal extension. If an assessment is submitted after the due date, 5% will be deducted from the final grade for every day the assessment is late. No assessments will be accepted after a period of 3 days after the due date, unless an extension has been granted.


Students should refer to the Bachelor of Education (Physical Education) Course Handbook and course regulations for further information on course completing assignments and assessment.

In circumstances where this is not appropriate, the student should discuss their situation with the course lecturer as soon as possible.
