Students can review their examination script (up to 2 weeks) after the final results have been released. Section 4. Other information about assessment and student support 4.1 Submission and return of assessment The ability to adhere to deadlines is a highly desirable attribute that employers seek in our graduates. Right from the beginning, new students should acquire the habit of meeting deadlines for their work, by organising their study time appropriately. The following points apply to the submission of assessment: 1. Extensions will be granted in cases of illness or personal issues (medical certificate/counsellor’s statement required). It is at the discretion of the subject co-ordinator/lecturer that extensions will be granted for inescapable, unexpected, documented work commitments (provide documentation). You should contact your lecturer before the due date if you are likely to require an extension. 2. Where no prior extension has been approved, late submissions will incur a penalty of 5% per day or part thereof. Weekends are treated as a single full day because university buildings are not usually accessible of over the weekend to allow for submission. Assessment tasks will generally not be graded after 14 days past the due date. 3. Each workbook must be submitted to a Safe Assignment drop box on the subject site, LearnJCU. Students may not email or fax an assignment without prior approval from the Subject Coordinator/Lecturer. 4. The assessment will be returned with feedback within 14 days of submission after the due date. 4.2 Plagiarism and referencing Plagiarism occurs when writers claim ownership of written words or ideas that are not their own. Plagiarism is a form of cheating and any instances of plagiarism will be dealt with promptly according to University procedures. Please see the JCU Student Academic Misconduct Requirements Policy Also see the definition of self plagiarism in the JCU Learning, Teaching and Assessment Policy and note policy statement 5.9 in regard to submission of one’s own work that has been previously submitted for assessment and received a grade Referencing is a systematic way of acknowledging the sources that you have used. Students should check out the very helpful online resources relating to academic writing, referencing and avoiding plagiarism at: Writing and Maths Skills Online (In particular, the booklet Summarising, Paraphrasing & Avoiding Plagiarism is a very useful guide). The Referencing Libguide What is Plagiarism? 4.3 Important advice relating to examinations If you experience difficulties or serious circumstances before or up to the day of your exam, which you believe may affect your ability to sit the exam successfully or perform at your best, you can apply for special consideration in the marking of your exam. Please see the JCU Special Consideration, Supplementary, Deferred and Special Examinations Requirements

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
