Students submitting take-home examinations are subject to the same guidelines as
students undertaking supervised examinations.
If a student misses an examination due to illness or circumstances beyond their control,
or has their work hampered during the examination, she or he should seek additional
assessment, usually in the form of a supplementary examination, through the Special
Consideration process. See Special Consideration guidelines in LMS.
Submission and Late Submission Policy
Take-home examinations must be submitted electronically via the LMS ‘Turnitin’ portal
before the published submission date and time. Late take-home examinations will be
subject to a penalty of 10% per day late, and any take-home exam that is submitted
more than a week late will not be marked (i.e. will receive zero marks). A late take-home
examination is one that is submitted after the due time and date set for submission or
after any extension has expired.
Place a word count at the end of your essay. Take-home examinations are subject to
word limit constraints. In calculating the number of words, for the purposes of enforcing a
word limit, every word of the submitted answer will be subject to this word limit,
excluding reference lists. Do not use footnotes.
Work that exceeds the word limit by 10% or more may incur a marking penalty.
References and Argument
At least three relevant peer-reviewed academic references should be used. The
reference list does not count towards your word count, but in-text citations and subheadings do count.
It is expected that you will use the required and additional readings found on the LMS
relevant to your essay topic. The emphasis here is not on significant, new library-based
research, but rather on demonstrating that you have read, understood and thought
further about key topics covered in the subject’s readings, lectures and tutorials.
Using some well-placed and well-chosen references will help your argument and grade.
ONLY use quotations that you really feel are important to YOUR argument. You only
have 1,000 words – use them wisely.
The exam is about YOUR knowledge and analysis of the course material – demonstrate
this. Show YOUR argument in the essay – not just what others have written.
Please revise the advice given in the ‘Guidance on Writing’ on the LMS. This includes
Structuring, Referencing and Grammar and spelling and the Assessment Rubric we use
to mark the exam.
