This may not apply to all assignments. You can submit your assessment task to Turnitin prior tothe due date and Turnitin may give you an originality report. You may then make any changes that may berequired and re-submit your final version by the due date.Return ofAssessed Work Academic IntegrityThe University’s policy on acknowledgement practice and plagiarism provides detailed information about how toacknowledge the work of others: https://www.uow.edu.au/about/policy/UOW058648.htmlThe University’s Academic Integrity Policy, Faculty Handbooks and subject guides clearly set out the University’sexpectation that students submit only their own original work for assessment and avoid plagiarising the work of othersor cheating. Re-using any of your own work (either in part or in full), which you have submitted previously forassessment, is not permitted without appropriate acknowledgement or without the explicit permission of the SubjectCoordinator. 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 bythe University to be intentionally or recklessly helping other students to cheat. Uploading an assessment task, subjectoutline or other course materials without express permission of the university is considered academic misconduct andstudents place themselves at risk of being expelled from the University.SUBMISSION AND RETURN OF ASSESSMENTSProcedures for the Submission and Return of Assessed WorkSubmission and return of assessment are outlined above in the corresponding assessment description.End of session examinations are not returned to students. Students wishing to view their end of session examinationwill need to contact the subject coordinator to arrange a time for viewing. End of session examination papers are heldby the School in a secure location for a period of one year before the papers are disposed of securely.15 | CSCI251 SUBJECT OUTLINE AUTUMN SESSION 2021Late Submission of Assessment Tasks and PenaltiesAssessed work must be handed in by the date and time given. Penalties apply to all late assessments, except if student academic consideration has been granted. A newsubmission date may be given if Student Academic Consideration has been granted, however the latepenalties below apply if not received by the new date. Late assignment submissions will attract a penalty of 25% of the total assessment mark for that task perday or part thereof, including weekends. Submissions received 4 days after the due date will receive no marks. If an assessment is submitted late, it will be marked in the normal way, and a penalty will then be applied. Submissions received 15 days after the due date will receive no feedback. However, lecturers may chooseto provide feedback at their discretion.For example: A report is worth 20% of the total mark for the subject. A student submits the report 3 days late (theassessment is due Friday, but the student submits the report on Monday after the submission date). Late submissionsare penalised 10% each day late. As a result of the late submission the student will be penalised by 30% of the markthat the student received for that assessment. The report was marked as 65%. Applying the penalty will finalise themark at 35%.ExtensionsExtensions of time to submit material for assessment can only be requested in advance of the due date for anassessment activity through the Academic Consideration process on SOLS. For more information, please refer to theStudent Academic Consideration Policy at: http://www.uow.edu.au/about/policy/UOW058721.htmlRetention of Submitted WorkThe University may retain copies of student work in order to facilitate quality assurance of assessment processes, insupport of the continuous improvement of assessment design, assessment marking and for the review of the subject.The University retains records of students’ academic work in accordance with the University Records ManagementPolicy and the State Records Act 1988 and uses these records in accordance with the University Privacy Policy andthe Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998.GENERAL ASSESSMENT INFORMATIONAcademic ConsiderationIf you believe that your submission of, performance in or attendance at an assessment activity, including anexamination, has been affected on compassionate grounds, by illness or by other serious extenuating circumstancesbeyond your control, you can apply for academic consideration in Student OnLine Services (SOLS). Do not assumethat an application for academic consideration will be automatically granted. For more information please refer to theStudent Academic Consideration Policy at: https://www.uow.edu.au/about/policy/UOW058721.htmlIn some circumstances you may be offered a deferred exam. For more information about Deferred and SupplementaryExams refer to: https://www.uow.edu.au/student/exams/aboutsupp/index.htmlReasonable AdjustmentIf you have a disability or a medical condition which may disadvantage you in your assessment tasks, you can applyto have the conditions of your exams adjusted to take your disability or condition into account. In particular studentscannot assume that a reasonable adjustment document automatically gives a right to a deferred or supplementaryexam. Students with a disability may be entitled to reasonable adjustment to assessment. A reasonable adjustmentdocument obtained through Disability Services is a recommendation that needs to be discussed and ratified by subject16 | CSCI251 SUBJECT OUTLINE AUTUMN SESSION 2021coordinators. Normal subject assessment requirements can only be adjusted with the explicit written permission of thesubject coordinator.Deferred ExamsDeferred Exams are for students who applied for Academic Consideration to request to sit their exam again, and hadtheir application approved by their subject coordinator.For more information about Supplementary or Deferred Exams refer to –https://www.uow.edu.au/student/exams/supplementary-exams/Supplementary AssessmentSupplementary assessment may be offered to students whose performance in this subject is close to that required topass the subject, and are otherwise identified as meriting an offer of a supplementary assessment. The SubjectCoordinator will determine the precise form of supplementary assessment at the time the offer of a supplementary ismade. In some circumstances you may be offered a supplementary exam. For more information about SupplementaryExams refer to: https://www.uow.edu.au/student/exams/aboutsupp/index.htmlScalingMarks awarded for any assessment task or part of any assessment task, including an examination may be subject toscaling at the end of the session. Marks will be scaled only when unpredicted circumstances occur and in order toensure fairness of marking across groups of students. The method of scaling will depend on the type of scaling requiredby the circumstances. When scaling is deemed necessary, it will follow a detailed consideration by the UnitAssessment Committee and/or the Faculty Assessment Committee of the marks of the group of students concerned.Scaling will not affect any individual student’s rank order within their cohort. For more information please refer toStandards for the Finalisation of Student Results Schedule 1: Scaling Guidelineshttps://www.uow.edu.au/about/policy/UOW039331.html for details.Student Academic Complaints PolicyIn accordance with the Coursework Student Academic Complaints Policy, a student may request an explanation of amark for an assessment task or a final grade for a subject consistent with the student’s right to appropriate and usefulfeedback on their performance in an assessment task. Refer to the Coursework Student Academic Complaints Policyfor further information – https://www.uow.edu.au/about/policy/UOW058653.htmlAssessment Quality CycleThe University of Wollongong is committed to the quality assurance and quality enhancement of assessment. TheUniversity will meet its legislative and regulatory obligations, to ensure consistent and appropriate assessment throughcourse management and coordination, including assessment quality assurance procedures. An Assessment QualityCycle is used to describe quality assurance at the points of assessment design, assessment delivery, the declaration ofmarks and grades, and review and improvement activities.UOW Grade DescriptorsThe UOW Grade Descriptors are general statements that communicate what our grades represent, in terms of standardsof performance, and provide a frame of reference to ensure that assessment practice across the University isappropriate, consistent and fair.
