Please refer to the UnitProfile to see how this assessment item relates to the Unit Learning Outcomes. These objectives will be measured by the â€˜closeness of fitâ€™ to meeting the assessment requirements and the marking criteria. General Assessment Criteria Assessments provide the opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge and skills to achieve the required standard. To do this, assessment responses need to be both clear and easy to understand. If not, the University cannot determine that students have demonstrated their knowledge and skills. Assessments will, therefore, be marked accordingly including the potential for 0 (zero) marks where relevant. All assessment items must focus on the topics given in the specifications for each item. Any assessment items outside the required topic may be awarded 0 (zero) marks. All portfolio items require students to write about your views, reflections and/or experiences from a personal viewpoint. Therefore, all items must be written in first person unless other requirements are stated in a portfolio item.Various written communication conventions have been discussed in the Unit content and you should follow the writing styles appropriate for each assessment item. Do NOT simply write in â€˜conversationalâ€™ style even when writing in â€˜first personâ€™ perspective. The length of eachsubmissionmust be within the recommended range. If the submission significantly exceeds the maximum word count or the page length the marker will stop marking. If you use Track Changes when writing your submissions you must ensure that the submitted document is the finaland correctversion of the document. That is, if your submitted document contains Track Changes or Comments or any other editing marks it may be awarded 0 (zero) marks. It is your responsibility to submit the final and correct version of your Portfolio items. Files that are auto-submitted will not be reverted to draft status except in extenuating circumstances. It is your responsibility not to leave draft assessments in Moodle at the due date and time if the files are not ready to be submitted for marking. Academic Integrity ALL assignments will be checked for plagiarism (material copied from other students and/or material copied from other sources) using TurnItIn. If you are found to have plagiarised material or if you have used someone elseâ€™s words without appropriate referencing, you will be penalised for plagiarism which could result in zero (0) marks for the whole assessment item NOT just the individual submission. In some circumstances a more severe penalty may be imposed. The Universityâ€™s Academic Misconduct Procedureis available in the policy portal https://www.cqu.edu.au/policy.
