Best practices from New Zealand and international teams will be critically discussed along with the latest research.

Due to the carefully planned learning progressions within courses and the workshop type nature of most on-campus classes, all on-campus students are expected to attend all sessions. Distance students should watch recorded sessions, and interact with other material provided by their lecturer shortly after it is made available through LEARN or other methods. This will ensure that you do not miss vital information which will allow you to make sense of the course content. If you are going to miss on-campus classes you are expected to email the course lecturer, catch up on missed work through classmates, view recordings, readings and other supplementary material provided. In special cases, the course lecturer may provide additional support for you.
Students will be asked to complete course evaluations, and will have the opportunity to provide feedback during their courses. Surveys are conducted electronically and are confidential. The College of Education, Health and Human Development will conduct regular graduate surveys.
All course assessments in the Bachelor of Sport Coaching are internally 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.
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.
