Assignments need to follow the Harvard standard/style of presentation. A style brochure is available in the library. http://www.swinburne.edu.au/lib/researchhelp/harvard_style.html

Assignments are to be submitted according to the class teacher’s requirements before the specified time and date.

Students need to ensure they keep a hard copy of any assignments they submit. This copy needs to be DATED. Keeping an electronic copy on file is not adequate.

Students should note that Saturday and Sunday are deemed to be working days in the case of late submission of assignments.

Plagiarism will not be permitted. Students need to attach an assignment declaration form available from the admin office / reception.

Any assignment submitted after the designated due date and time will be penalised by deduction of 10% of the marks for each working day that the assignment is late.

Late assignments will only be accepted without penalty if a student has a valid medical reason or an extension has been applied for and granted, in writing.

If a teacher designates that an assignment is to be handed in to the office, students must ensure that the assignment is date stamped by the Administration staff.

Resubmission of Assignments Students may resubmit an assignment or assessment piece that has not received a pass at the discretion of the subject convener. Re-submitted work can only achieve a pass grade. Assessments, Tests and Special Exams 

13. Plagiarism Swinburne College defines Plagiarism as the action or practice of taking and submitting or presenting thoughts, writings or other work of someone else as though it is our own work. Plagiarism includes any of the following, without full and appropriate acknowledgment of the original source(s): i)

The use of whole or part of a computer program written by another person;

ii)

The use, in essays or other assessable work, of the whole or part of a written work from any source including but not limited to a book, journal, newspaper article, set of lecture notes, current or past student’s work, or any other person’s work, a website or database;

iii) The paraphrasing of another’s work; iv) The use of musical composition, audio, visual, graphic and photographic models’ v)

The use of realia; that is objects, artefacts, costumes, models and the like.

Plagiarism also includes the preparation and production and submission or presentation of assignments or other work in conjunction with another person or other people when that work should be your own independent work. This remains plagiarism whether or not it is with the knowledge or consent of the other person or people. It should be noted that Swinburne College encourages its students to talk to staff, fellow students and other people who may be able to contribute to a student’s academic work but that where independent assignment is required, submitted or presented work must be the student’s own. Allowing or otherwise assisting another student to copy or otherwise plagiarise work by, for example, allowing access to a draft or completed assignment or other work, is also considered plagiarism. Students will be penalised for work that has been plagiarised.

14. Student Feedback Swinburne College seeks student feedback in a number of ways, including through periodic surveys as part of the College’s approach to quality assurance and improvement. The address is; http://www.swinburne.edu.au/corporate/feedback/
