Marking and feedback

 

  • The final draft will be assessed based on the marking descriptor at the end of this task sheet.
  • Formative feedback will be provided on the first draft in line with university regulations.

 

Suggestions

 

  • Complete all classroom activities on time – many of the EAP038 classes in weeks 1-6 are based around different sections of an essay. It would be a good idea to work on those sections of the essay in those weeks, while the knowledge you have learnt is still fresh in your mind.
  • Plan effectively – reading and making notes on source material requires several hours.
  • Additional sources are not required.
  • Follow academic integrity requirements – this includes paraphrasing source material and recording the source information (citations, reference list).
  • Use academic language.
  • Try to submit well before the deadline (in case of technical problems).

 

Academic Integrity and Late Penalties

 

Assignments must all be individual pieces of work. Plagiarism and collusion will be penalised. Penalties range from capped scores to an award of 0 (zero) and will apply in instances of:

 

  • Plagiarism - copying words or ideas directly from the source without proper citation.
  • Collusion - working with others or copying directly from your peer when you are required to work individually.

 

This assessment will penalise for Academic Integrity (AI) using the following rules:

 

  • Minor errors with formatting of citations / reference list = AI A Penalty (5% deduction)
  • Some of the essay uses uncited words or ideas / words copied or poorly paraphrased from source material / words copied from other students / reference list is missing = AI B Penalty (10% deduction)
  • Much of the essay uses uncited words or ideas / words copied or poorly paraphrased from source material

/ words copied from other students = AI C Penalty (possible 0 score)

Please refer to the Academic Integrity Policy Overview Student Version on the Learning Mall EAP038 module page for further details on the above rules and additional rules. It must be noted that AI penalties change according to assessment types. The university uses the online software Turnitin to check your assignments for possible plagiarism and collusion. You will also be able to use this tool before you submit your assignments to ensure, for example, that you did not accidentally copy sentences from a source. Your tutor will tell you more about how to use Turnitin.

 

  • Lateness: Work submitted after the deadline will receive a score deduction of 5% for each day late, up to a maximum of 5 days.
