Changes to the Assessment Policy ;

Please watch this short video with A/Pro Peter Keegan and Dr Trudy Ambler presenting key elements of the ‘new’ Assessment Policy, 2016.

Assessments  

If you haven’t already please create an ‘Assessment’ section/topic which sits under the introduction to the unit.  Therefore the first section heading is the Assessment heading followed by the learning content sections/topics.  All assessment information and submission links should be placed in this area.     This includes the HD examplar, Rubrics and any other necessary guidelines for the assessment.

Nomenclature and dates – Ensure the assessments are labeled as they are written in the Unit Guide and that submission dates and times are exactly the same as within the Unit Guide.

How do I create the new Turnitin V2 Assignment?

You will notice that when you cloned or created your unit that Turnitin no longer exists in your unit.  You will need to recreate all your Turnitin assignments using Version 2!   Remember to select Turnitin V2!

Want to reduce your stress levels?  Then the next step is to setup Gradebook before session starts!

If you need assistance attend the Learning Innovation Hub – Learning Teaching Services Drop in Clinics over the session break  or attend the regular Arts L&T team drop in clinics.

Remove – delete – excise any old learning and teaching  material.  Why? This material slows up the loading time of the unit.

The more clear and concise information you give a student about what you need them to do  the less inquiry you will receive!
