Late submissions and single item extensions
In all courses marks are deducted for late submission unless Special Consideration or an Application for Extension is sought. If a student feels they may miss a deadline for a single item submission they may negotiate an extension with their teacher. They must negotiate the extension by the due date of submission. They must complete the Application for Extension form available for the Administration Office on level 3 B515. (This does not apply where there are a number of missed submissions due to general difficulties – see Special Consideration).
Cover Sheet for Submissions
All students must complete a submission cover sheet for ever piece of submitted work. This signed sheet acknowledges they are aware of the plagiarism implications noted below.
Plagiarism is the presentation of the work, idea or creation of another person as though it is your own. It is a form of cheating and is a very serious academic offence that may lead to expulsion from the University. Plagiarised material can be drawn from, and presented in, written, graphic and visual form, including electronic data and oral presentation. Plagiarism occurs when the origin of the material used is not appropriately cited. Is also occurs through enabling plagiarism, which is the act of assisting or allowing another person to plagiarise or to copy your own work. Please make sure you consider this carefully in completing all your work and assessments in this course and if you are unsure about whether you might have plagiarised, seek help from your teacher.
Work not seen in progress
If a student hands in any work that the teacher has never seen in class or discussed with the student prior to the submission, the teacher can refuse to assess the work on the basis of authentication issues.
