How are assignments graded?

Answer

GRADES & FEEDBACK

We aim to provide grades and feedback on work within:

Module Feedback Deadline / after due date
4100 to 6200 Modules Up to 15 Working days*
6300 Modules Up to 20 Working days*

*These time frames are subject to campus closure. Please ask your lecturer for exact expected feedback date.

Grades will initially be visible only on the Campus Online submission portal.

Students will also receive feedback on their initial assignment submissions in the form of a Assignment Feedback Form. This will include:

  • Whom marked your work;
  • Information on your grade boundary achievements within the assignment criteria;
  • And a short written assessment of your work, including areas of contention, improvement suggestion or praise.

Your assignment grade will also be included at the bottom of this sheet, and should correlate with the assignment criteria marks given.

Example Feedback Form

You can view a blank copy of these forms via the 'Assessment Forms & Rubric' link on every module 'Assessments' Section.
