Submission of Assignments Specific submission instructions have been included in the assignment details section of this outline. An assignment cover sheet must be attached to all assignments and all sections of the cover sheet must be completed by the student. Receipts will be issued on submission of assignments and students are required to retain this receipt until they have received the final mark for that assignment task. The receipt is the only proof of submission of assignments and students will be required to produce this in the event that an assignment task is considered to be lost. Students are also expected to keep a copy of all their submitted assignments in the event that re-submission is required. Note that if assignments are submitted in the after-hours slot in SMAH Central or via post, the receipt must be filled out and left attached to the coversheet. The receipt will be stamped and retained under the counter at SMAH Central for later collection during business hours. You must collect your receipt personally and you will be required to show your student card at the counter of SMAH Central to obtain your receipt. Any assignments received without the coversheet attached, receipt section completed in full or receipt missing will not be receipted. Students may post their assignments in to: SMAH Central (41.152) University of Wollongong Wollongong NSW 2522 Distance assignment coversheets provided with the subject materials package are to be completed and attached to all assignments individually – do not attach more than one assignment to a coversheet. Receipt of assignments from Distance students will be acknowledged by email provided that you include your student email account (e.g. [email protected]) on the assignment coversheet. If you have submitted an assignment that includes your email account details and have not received an email receipt within 5 working days, please contact SMAH Central on 02 4221 3492. Please keep a copy of your assignment in case of loss after mailing. Assignments will be returned by post as quickly as possible after marking. Due Date Unless otherwise specified, assignments are due by 4:00pm on the due date specified for the assignment task. The date of submission by post for students will be considered to be the postmark date stamped on the assignment envelope. Note that it is not generally necessary to use Express Post as long as the envelope is clearly postmarked. However, approved late submission or other requirements of the Subject Coordinator may necessitate use of Express Post. If Express Post is used you will need to specifically request that the Post Office postmark your envelope, as Express Post envelopes do not normally carry a postmark. 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)). Subject Outline: GHMB957 © University of Wollongong 2012. All rights reserved. 15 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 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. Extensions An extension of time to submit assignments can only be granted by the subject coordinator in exceptional circumstances. Pressure of work, either from employment or from other studies, is not an acceptable reason for seeking an extension of time. Carefully note the due date for each assignment and plan your work so that deadlines can be met. Students seeking an extension must submit an application for academic consideration through SOLS with appropriate documentation PRIOR to the deadline for submission of the assessment task. Assessment Return Marked assignments will be handed out in class or be available for collection during academic consultation hours OR according to the arrangement announced by the Subject Coordinator. In accordance with University Policy marked assignments will usually only be retained by the Subject Coordinator/Tutor for 21 days after the declaration of the marks for that assignment. After that time any uncollected assignments will be destroyed. Supplementary Assessments Supplementary assessment may be offered to students who apply for student academic consideration and can demonstrate suitable grounds in accordance with the Student Academic Consideration Policy. The precise form of supplementary assessment will be determined at the time the offer of a supplementary assessment is made. Examination Rules In 2012, there were a number of changes to the University Examination Rules that affect all current students. You can find this information at the following link; http://www.uow.edu.au/student/exams/index.html. Supplementary Examinations You can find the information for supplementary examinations at the following link; http://www.uow.edu.au/student/exams/aboutsupp/index.html. Student Academic Consideration Policy Academic Consideration is a process intended to help minimise the impact of serious or extenuating circumstances beyond a student’s control which significantly impair a student’s ability to complete an assessment task on or by the due date as stipulated in the Subject Outline or to progress academically in a subject relevant to their course of study. Academic consideration may be granted on the basis of medical grounds, compassionate grounds and/or extenuating circumstances. It is not possible for academic consideration to compensate for every consequence of illness, injury, other serious cause, or extenuating circumstance affecting a student’s academic progress. However, academic consideration, where appropriate, may help to minimise the impact of such circumstances by providing a mechanism to vary assessment requirements of a subject or to avoid some of the usual consequences of failure in a subject. To apply for academic consideration you must submit an application via SOLS, as well as relevant documentation which is submitted in person to Student Central in Bld 17. The Subject Coordinator will be automatically notified of your request once you have submitted documentation and they will approve or decline your application. Students should log on to SOLS to see if their request has been approved. In the event of a genuine emergency, you must notify the Subject Coordinator as soon as possible by whatever means practical at the time, and follow with a formal academic consideration request as soon as you are able to. The full policy on Student Academic Consideration is found in the Policy Directory on the UOW website. Subject Outline: GHMB957 © University of Wollongong 2012. All rights reserved. 16 System of Referencing Used for Written Work The School uses the Harvard system of referencing, unless otherwise specified for a particular assignment – check Details of Assessment Tasks. A summary of 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 Plagiarism means using the ideas of someone else without giving them proper credit. ALL work submitted for assessment MUST BE YOUR OWN. The other person may be an author, a lecturer or another student. The work may previously have been published in print or on the Web. Plagiarism will not be tolerated and may result in the imposition of severe penalties. The University of Wollongong has the power to reprimand and penalise any student found guilty of such offences. If plagiarism is suspected, this will result in appropriate investigations. “Students are responsible for submitting original work for assessment, without plagiarising or cheating, abiding by the University’s Academic Integrity and Plagiarism Policy as set out in the University Handbook, the University’s online Policy Directory and in Faculty Handbooks and subject guides. . 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 has led to the expulsion from the University.” To avoid plagiarism when using other people’s work, take care to reference appropriately. For assistance with correct referencing technique, consult with your tutor or lecturer. The Learning Development Centre also provides assistance to students on how to correctly reference. Please note that you are required to sign a declaration on the assignment cover sheet, stating that you have read and met the requirements for the assignment, that (except for group assignments) you have not collaborated with other students, that you have not plagiarised and that, where you have used the work of others, you have referenced it appropriately. Academic staff will return your assignment unmarked if you have not signed the declaration. The full policy on Academic Integrity and Plagiarism is found in the Policy Directory on the UOW website. 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.
