  3. 3. THE RULES: RECEIVING NEW ASSESSMENT TASKS You must sign a sheet to show your teacher that you received the task If you are absent when a task is handed out, you must see your teacher the day you return to collect it This does not necessarily mean you will be given an extension It is your responsibility to check Moodle and your Assessment Book to be ready for upcoming assessment tasks

THE RULES: SUBMITTING ASSESSMENT TASKS You must sign your name to show your teacher you handed in the task Your task must be accompanied by a signed, complete Cover Sheet (Moodle —> Year Group Information or in the Library) Your task must be printed (not electronic) unless your teacher instructs you otherwise If you are absent on the day a task is due you must submit it to your teacher immediately upon your return, whether or not you have class that day (if you can’t find your teacher, see the Head Teacher) Failure to submit a task on the due date will result in a mark of 0 being awarded You must still satisfy course requirements by submitting the task

THE RULES: ILLNESS AND MISADVENTUREIf you are ill on the day a task is due you must get a doctor’s certificate If you suffer some other misadventure that makes you unable to submit the task, get whatever documentation you can Technology breakdown is not considered a misadventure Bring it to the Mrs Wilson or Mr Bowen on the day you return and fill out an official Illness/Misadventure form This does not guarantee that you will be granted special consideration - it is just an application Wherever possible, hand in the task as soon as you return
  7. 7.

  8. 8. ASSESSMENT APPEALSIf you have a problem with your assessment, you should speak to your class teacher first If the problem is ongoing, please see the Faculty Head Teacher You have the option to lodge an appeal in writing, to be reviewed by a panel of Head Teachers You cannot dispute the type of task given or the allocation of marks for the task
  9. 9. PLAGIARISM Plagiarism is where you pretend you have written, created or developed a piece of work that someone else originated. It is cheating and considered malpractice. Even if you change the order of the words Even if you write it then your tutor or someone else changes it dramatically. If it is detected in your work you will be awarded zero for all or part of the task. The school may be unable to certify any practical or major works they cannot declare to be ‘authentic’/ You may also have to participate in an interview with a ‘malpractice’ panel at the Board of Studies and you may jeopardise your ability to be awarded one of your HSC courses. This includes the use of phones during in-school assessment tasks. Quoting from other people’s work (legitimate) with proper and thorough referencing is totally fine
  10. 10. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONSRefer to the Assessment Book Speak to your class teacher Speak to Mrs Wilson or Mr Bowen See Ms Miller about research and referencing practices Whatever happens, do your best to produce your own work, thoughtfully, and hand it in on time
