If you fail to submit this component as directed, in accordance with the guidance provided on the Virtual Learning Environment (Moodle), a mark of 0 will be awarded for the component. Turnitin is required for coursework assessments, such as report/research papers or projects in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and in PDF format.  There are two main reasons we want you to use Turnitin:  Turnitin can help you avoid academic breaches and plagiarism.  When you use Turnitin before a submission deadline, you can use the Originality Report feature to compare your work to thousands of other sources (like websites, Wikipedia, and even other student papers).  Anything in your work that identically matches another source is highlighted for you to see.  When you use this feature before the deadline, you will have time to revise your work to avoid an instance of academic breach/plagiarism.    Turnitin saves paper.  When using Turnitin to electronically submit your work, you will almost never have to submit a paper copy. REASSESSMENT ARRANGEMENTS You have submitted at the first opportunity but failed: The student should use the provided feedback for the first submission and complete the assessment again by improving their first submission. The time/day of the submission – TBC.You have not submitted at the first opportunity: in this case you have to complete this assessment (please see above). The time/day of the submission – TBC. LATE SUBMISSIONS We strongly suggest that you try to submit all coursework by the deadline set as meeting deadlines is expected in employment. However, in our regulations, UEL has permitted students to be able to submit their coursework up to 24 hours after the deadline. The deadline will be published in your module guide. Coursework which is submitted late, but within 24 hours of the deadline, will be assessed but subjected to a fixed penalty of 5% of the total marks available (as opposed to marks obtained). However, you have to be very careful when you are submitting your assessment. If you submit your work twice, once using the original deadline link and then again using the late submission link, your assignment will be graded as late with the 5% deduction. Please note that if you submit twice, once before the deadline and once during the 24 hour late period, then the second submission will be marked and 5% deducted. This rule only applies to coursework. It does not apply to examinations, presentations, performances, practical assessments or viva voce examinations. If you miss these for a genuine reason, then you will need to apply for extenuating circumstances, or accept that you will receive a zero mark. Extenuating Circumstances are circumstances which: impair your examination performance prevent you from attending examinations or other types of assessment, orprevent you from submitting coursework or other assessed work by the scheduled deadline date, or within 24 hours of the deadline date Such circumstances rarely occur and would normally be: unforeseeable – in that you could have no prior knowledge of the event concerned, andunpreventable – in that you could do nothing reasonably in your power to prevent such an event, andexpected to have a serious impact on performance You can make an application for extenuating circumstances by following this link: https://uelac.sharepoint.com/StudentSupport/Pages/Extenuation-information.aspx RETURN OF WORK AND FEEDBACK Arrangements for the publication of results is stated in the Course Handbook. Formal results are ONLY available in UEL Direct, and will be published within 8 working days of the Board, where results are formally confirmed. Any other results are provisional / indicative but not approved. You will receive feedback throughout your course through the following: one-to-one or individualised (i.e. tutorials, conversations with supervisors, or individualised comments on assignments)✓generic feedback (i.e. use of rubrics, ‘Quickmarks’ in Turnitin or standardised forms)peer feedback (i.e. feedback from other students)informal feedback (i.e. through in-class discussions or online forums)self-evaluation (i.e. online checklists or reflective submissions)other (see below) Feedback and students’ marks should be provided within 15 working days of the due date for summative work (i.e. work that counts towards the final course grade) and formative work (i.e. work that is developmental and designed to help you improve). Whilst feedback will be given on draft/formative work, it shouldn’t be assumed that every aspect will be identified. ONLINE SYSTEM FAILURES If you experience a problem submitting your work online, you should notify your lecturer/tutor by email immediately. However, deadlines are not extended unless there is a significant systems problem with Turnitin. UEL has specific plans in place to address these issues. If UEL finds that the issue with the system was significant, you will receive an email notifying you of the issue and that you have been given a 24 hour extension. If you don’t receive any email that specifically states you have been given an extension, then the original deadline has not been changed. Best advice: Don’t wait until the last minute to submit your assessments electronically.

UEL’s standard Harvard referencing system is from Cite Them Right. Cite them Right is the standard Harvard referencing style at UEL for all Schools, however professional body requirements will take precedence for instance the School of Psychology which uses the APA system.

Feedback is crucial for your learning and it is an important part of the academic cycle. It tells you what the strengths are of your work, what its weaknesses are and how it can be improved. WHY IS FEEDBACK IMPORTANT? Feedback is the most effective way to: Help you understand how to succeed in your assessments; Help you produce better work for the future; Signpost you to other resources for assistance. If you pay attention to feedback, particularly where the same comment is made in several modules, you can use the information to improve. WHERE DO I GET FEEDBACK? When a tutor comments on your answers in seminars/lectures/workshopsGeneral comment on assessment performance in lectures and seminarsGeneral comment on questions prepared for seminarsWhen another student makes comments on your presentationWhen you produce practice questions for a tutor who gives commentsWhen you receive written comments on your work submitted either as coursework or examWhen you look at general feedback on module performance on UEL Direct.When you see your Academic Adviser with all your assessment feedback for general advice. You should always do this after each assessment period.
