Assessment tasks will be marked using explicit criteria that will be provided to students prior to submission. Hardcopies of this document are considered uncontrolled please refer to UOW website or eLearning for the latest version 2014_Aut_CHIP915_FINAL Page: 4 of 7 Last modified: 21 February 2014 Minimum Requirements for a Pass in this Subject To receive a clear pass in this subject a total mark of 50% or more must be achieved. In addition, students must meet all of the minimum performance requirements as listed below. Failure to meet any of the minimum performance requirements is grounds for awarding a Technical Fail (TF) in the subject even where total marks accumulated are greater than 50%. A Technical Fail (TF) grade will be awarded for the subject even where the total marks accumulated are 50% or higher, if one or more of the following criteria are not met: • does not attempt all assessment tasks Minimum Requirements: Student Participation Students who do not meet minimum attendance requirements may be awarded a Technical Fail (TF) for this subject. Regular student participation is required through active engagement with activities, readings, podcasts as posted on the Moodle site. Students who do not meet minimum participation through engagement with the Moodle site activities as identified by the Moodle site analytics may be awarded a technical fail (TF) for this subject. Minimum Participation: Student participation at workshops is not an assessable component of this course, but is highly recommended. Students who do not meet minimum participation requirements may be awarded a Technical Fail (TF) for this subject. Minimum requirements are: • submit all assessments • Actively engage with the Moodle site activities, podcasts, eReadings and other activities (75% benchmark set based on Moodle site analytics) Students who do not meet the overall minimum performance level requirements outlined above may be given a Technical Fail (TF) grade on their academic transcript even where the total marks accumulated are 50% or higher. Where a Technical Fail is awarded, the grade is displayed as TF but a mark is not displayed on the academic transcript. For the purposes of calculating a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) a TF is allocated a mark of 49. Scaling Scaling will not occur in this subject. Late Submission Late submission of an assessment task without an approved extension of the deadline is not acceptable. Marks will be deducted for late submission at the rate of 5% of the total possible marks for that particular assessment task per day. This means that if a piece of work is marked out of 100, then the late penalty will be 5 marks per day (5% of 100 possible marks per day). The formula for calculating the late penalty is the total possible marks x 0.05 x number of days late. For example: Student A submits an assignment which is marked out of 100. The assignment is submitted 7 days late. This means that a late penalty of 35 marks will apply (100 x 0.05 x 7). The assignment is marked as per normal out of 100 and is given a mark of 85/100, and then the late penalty is applied. The result is that the student receives a final mark of 50/100 for the assignment (85 (original mark) – 35 marks (late penalty) = 50/100 (final mark)). Student B submits a report which is marked out of 20. The report is submitted three days late. This means that a late penalty of 3 marks will apply ((20 x 0.05 x 3). The report is marked as per normal out of 20 and is given a mark of 17/20, and then the late penalty is applied. The result is that the student receives a final mark of 14/20 for the report (17 (original mark) – 3 marks (late penalty) = 14/20 (final mark)). For the purposes of this policy a weekend (Saturday and Sunday) will be regarded as two days. No marks will be awarded for work submitted either: a) after the assessment has been returned to the Hardcopies of this document are considered uncontrolled please refer to UOW website or eLearning for the latest version 2014_Aut_CHIP915_FINAL Page: 5 of 7 Last modified: 21 February 2014 students or b) more than two weeks after the due date, whichever is the sooner. Notwithstanding this, students must complete all assessment tasks to a satisfactory standard and submit them, regardless of lateness or loss of marks, where submission is a condition of satisfactorily completing the subject. Supplementary Assessments Students can log on to SOLS and click on the link titled “Supplementary Assessment” to view any applicable offers or use the following link; http://www.uow.edu.au/student/exams/suppassess/index.html System of Referencing Used for Written Work The School of Nursing and Midwifery uses the Harvard system of referencing, unless otherwise specified for a particular assignment – check ‘Details of Assessment Tasks’. The Harvard system can be accessed via the Library homepage, Related Links, Referencing and citing: http://www.library.uow.edu.au/resourcesbytopic/UOW026621.html. Use of Internet Sources Students are able to use the Internet to access the most current information on relevant topics and information. Internet sources should only be used after careful critical analysis of the currency of the information, the role and standing of the sponsoring institution, reputation and credentials of the author, the clarity of the information and the extent to which the information can be supported or ratified by other authoritative sources. Plagiarism The full policy on Academic Integrity and Plagiarism is found in the Policy Directory on the UOW website. “The University’s Academic Integrity and Plagiarism Policy, Faculty Handbooks and subject guides clearly set out the University’s expectation that students submit only their own original work for assessment and avoid plagiarising the work of others or cheating. Re-using any of your own work (either in part or in full) which you have submitted previously for assessment is not permitted without appropriate acknowledgement. Plagiarism can be detected and has led to students being expelled from the University. The use by students of any website that provides access to essays or other assessment items (sometimes marketed as ‘resources’), is extremely unwise. Students who provide an assessment item (or provide access to an assessment item) to others, either directly or indirectly (for example by uploading an assessment item to a website) are considered by the university to be intentionally or recklessly helping other students to cheat. This is considered academic misconduct and students place themselves at risk of being expelled from the University.” Submission of Assignments Specific submission instructions have been included in the assignment details section of this outline. Students are also expected to keep a copy of all their submitted assignments in the event that resubmission is required. Assessment Return Assessments will be returned via eLearning within 21 days of the due date. Section C: General Advice Students should refer to the Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health website for information on policies, learning and support services and other general advice.
