You are required to successfully complete
the following assessments to be assigned a passing grade in a unit.
A typical assessment system looks as below.
In all units, assessment items will be marked using letter grades, usually HD, A, B , C or ?not satisfactory? (and thus, possibly ?re-submit?) or Fail. Individual assignments may be given a ?+? or ?-? attached to the letter grade (e.g A+, C- etc).
At the end of each semester, grades for units studied will be assigned using HD, A, B, C, Fail or Incomplete. The final grade for a unit will be assigned by aggregating the weighted grades for individual assessment items in that unit.
Upgrading ?Incomplete? grades
Learners who, at the end of a semester, have a grade of 'Incomplete' because of deferred work are still eligible to receive the full range of possible final grades once they have completed all assessment requirements for that unit. However, for those students with a grade of ?incomplete? where supplementary, or resubmit, work is required, IIIBF/Netversity regulations apply, which means that only a passing grade or a failing grade is allowed.
Students enrolled in units of the equivalent of one-credit point or less will have the opportunity to study their unit over a two-semester period. For those engaged in two-credit point units, students will have the option to study over a period of three-semesters.
For those who opt to take advantage of the 'extra' semester, a grade of' incomplete' will be given to those students at the end of the first or second semester and this will be up-graded sometime during the following semester.
Students who have not completed all items of assessment by the end of the 'extra' semester will be given a Fail in the unit. Only under unique circumstances, such as severe illness, will a longer extension be granted as the policy has been designed to help students combine work, study and family life.
It is the responsibility of the student to inform lecturers of the expected completion date of work and those students planning to take advantage of the extra semester to complete their work MUST inform lecturers of their plans, before the final assignment submission date, if they are to be granted the one semester extension.
For each assignment you will receive a letter grade (HD, A, B, C or F) and your final unit grade will be derived from a combination of these grades after taking into account the different weightings attached to each assignment. The expectations for each grade are as follows:
HD: Assignment demonstrates:
A: Assignment demonstrates:
B: Assignment demonstrates:
C: Assignment demonstrates:
+/-: Plus minus indicators will be used in association with letter grades HD, A, B and C.
Resubmit: Assignment demonstrates:
