Other Information

Competency requirements and Grading:

To be deemed competent you must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of a competency. Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over multiple tasks.

You will be advised that you are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met. Observation of You performing work is used to confirm competency.

 

Grading available are:

Grade level Competency Level

CA Competency Achieved -The learner will be able to apply facts, rules and standard solutions to achieve a predictable task or solve a problem.

NYC Not Yet Competent

-Although the learner exhibits access to a limited range of facts and rules, the learner has difficulty applying these facts and rules to a familiar task.

DNS: Did not submit assessment

 Assessment Submission:

Turnitin

Turnitin is an online text-matching service which can be used to support academic integrity and address plagiarism. All submissions via Turnitin within Blackboard include the relevant wording for the e-Submission authorisation process. You are to use Turnitin. To verify that the work submitted is their own work and referenced accordingly. This software will be used by all staff to ensure original work by You is checked at submission of the assessment.

e-Submission:

The University is obliged to obtain clear You authorisation on all assessable works. RMIT’s  e-Submission process provides a valid authorisation equivalent to a signature on a paper coversheet allowing You to submit assessment works electronically.

The e-Submission process requires that specific wording and a link to the assessment declaration is included in your assessment documentation in order to comply with legal and statutory obligations, and can be used with all RMIT teaching technologies, including;

  • Blackboard
  • PebblePad
  • WebLearn
  • RMIT’s Google Apps for Education (Gmail, Drive, Sites etc.)

The use of fully electronic submissions saves significant time for both staff and You.

 Good practice

  • Providing clear advice to you on the e-Submission process as part of their assessment expectations assists in ensuring that it is straightforward for RMIT You to submit work electronically.
  • You can submit non-electronic works via conversion by a digital scanner, i.e. paper-based assessments can be scanned and submitted for assessment via the e-Submission process.
  • Establishing a Turnitin assignment in Blackboard is a quick way to provide an e-Submission process for a class group.

You must submit all assessment tasks electronically via blackboard as directed by their teacher.

You are not to email or hand assessment tasks to teachers in class, corridor or cafeteria etc

 Late submission:

If you require an Extension of Submittable Work (assignments, reports or project work etc.) for 7 calendar days or less (from the original due date) and have valid reasons, you must complete and

Lodge an Application for Extension of Submittable Work (7 Calendar Days or less) form and lodge it with the Senior Educator/ Program Manager.

The application must be lodged no later than one working day before the official due date. You will be notified within no more than 2 working days of the date of lodgement as to whether the extension has been granted.

If you seek an Extension of Submittable Work for more than 7 calendar days (from the original due date) must lodge an Application for Special Consideration form under the provisions of the Special Consideration Policy, preferably prior to, but no later than 2 working days after the official due date.

Assignments submitted late without approval of an extension will not be accepted or marked.

 

Refer to RMIT University Policies and Procedures, verify for most recent version.
