    Assessment Marking Criteria – Essay
    Assessment Marking Criteria – Essay
    Students will be assessed on the following criteria for their essay.
    These ARE NOT suggested titles for sections of your report NOR ARE THEY
    QUESTIONS that require direct responses, they simply reflect the content that
    should be embedded in your report. The marker will be looking for these themes
    and will mark them with reference to a set of standards. It is OK to label your
    introduction and conclusion.
    Introduction (10 marks or 10%)
    Your introduction should be no more than the first one or two paragraphs of your essay
    that set the scene for your topic. What Art movement did you pick? Describe and
    contextualise the movement very briefly. The introduction should be a snap shot of your
    whole essay in very general terms. The body of the essay will fill in the gaps.
    Topic Relevance (10 marks or 10%)
    Your essay has to directly relate to the topic. Avoid generalisations and vague statements
    that don’t really relate to the technology you are investigating.
    Research (20 marks or 20%)
    A good essay relies on information that comes from reliable and recognised sources. The
    recommended readings are minimal requirements for understanding your topic.
    Additional readings identified by you and properly cited and used in your essay to support
    a point or argument or to highlight your perspective in the essay will attract higher marks.
    Simply adding as many citations as possible without integrating them properly in your
    essay will not be viewed positively.
    Analysis and Synthesis (30 marks or 30%)
    Ensure that all of the information gathered on your chosen technology can be woven into
    a theme that makes sense and all the pieces fit. Avoid making statements without
    connection. The information should be carefully analysed and combined in ways that
    support your main themes and arguments.
    Writing Style and Grammar (10 marks or 10%)
    Pay attention to your writing and don’t be afraid to edit and amend what you write several
    times until it sounds clear and concise. Use your spell checker, there is no excuse for
    incorrect spelling.
    Conclusion (10 marks or 10%)
    The final part of your essay should connect theory with outcomes. You should synthesise
    the variety of sources that were used in researching the topic and reach a final conclusion
    which outlines the future of your chosen technology clearly outlining why you have
    reached this conclusion.
    Referencing (10 marks or 10%)
    Reference according to the APA referencing style guide. Additional information is
    available from the library if you need assistance. Get into the habit of being as accurate
    as possible with punctuation and presentation. Keep in mind that recommended readings
    are a minimal requirement and references to materials beyond this list and identified and
    properly cited in your essay will attract higher marks.

    Assessment Marking Criteria – Report
    Students will be assessed on the following criteria for their report.
    These ARE NOT suggested titles for sections of your report NOR ARE THEY
    QUESTIONS that require direct responses, they simply reflect the content that
    should be embedded in your report. The marker will be looking for these themes
    and will mark them with reference to a set of standards. It is OK to label your
    introduction and conclusion.
    Introduction (10 Marks or 10%)
    Your introduction should be no more than the first one or two paragraphs of your report
    that set the scene for your choice of art movement – what is it, what factors led to your
    choice. What will be the final product?
    Reflection of technical skilling (15 Marks or 15%)
    What are the particular technical skills that are required to successfully achieve what you
    set out to do? What did you have to learn to do, which programs did you have to master,
    are there particular methods and strategies that work better than others? Try and give the
    reader a clear picture of the developmental process that you went through.
    Reflection Process (15 Marks or 15%)
    What are the particular processes that are required to successfully achieve what you set
    out to do? How did you formulate your ideas and bring them to fruition? What inspired
    the design and process? What strategies did you use, and did they change as you
    encountered problems? What did you learn as you worked through the design process?.
    Positive Outcomes (15 Marks or 15%)
    What are the things that worked? Why did they work? Are there general rules that can be
    applied to ensure a positive outcome? Are there things you could do even better the next
    time around to ensure success? Can you point to some of the literature that helped
    ensure successful outcomes? How did they help?
    Negative Outcomes (15 Marks or 15%)
    What things didn’t work? Why were they not successful? Did you contravene some basic
    design rules that led to failure? What would you avoid doing the next time around? Is
    there anything in the literature that, on reflection, was helpful or not helpful?
    Writing Style and Grammar (10 Marks or 15%)
    Pay attention to your writing and don’t be afraid to edit and amend what you write several
    times until it sounds clear and concise. Use your spell checker; there is no excuse for
    incorrect spelling.
    Final Evaluation and Conclusion (20 Marks or 20%)
    The final part of your report should connect theory with the final product. Evaluate the
    outcome overall. Was it a success or a failure or somewhere in-between? Are there
    ways you could have improved the product? What did you learn? Was the prior learning
    helpful? Did you find your own sources of information that guided your processes?

    Section B – Additional Institute Information
    Grade Descriptions
    Students may be awarded a raw numerical mark for their assignment which will then be
    converted to one of the following:
    HD – High Distinction 85% and above
    D – Distinction 75 – 84%
    C – Credit 65 – 74%
    P – Pass 50 – 64%
    F – Fail – below 50%
    DNS – Did not submit
    All major assignments (40% or above) will be awarded one of the above grades.
    For more information on please refer to the Institute’s policy ‘Student Assessment Policy and
    Procedure’ available on the Institute’s web site.
    High Distinction (H)
    An analytical piece of work that offers originality in synthesis or analysis, and utilises a multitude
    of relevant sources to justify arguments and produce a critical and intelligent piece of work. Work
    of this standard will require flawless referencing and will contain few, if any, grammatical errors.
    All areas of criteria will be of an excellent standard.
    Distinction (D)
    Comprehensively analyses the question, understands and compares approaches systematically,
    critical comments on literature, excellent examples and illuminating insights. Work of this
    standard will be consistent and clear with appropriate referencing and use of grammar
    Credit (C)
    Analytical and explanatory discussion, some theoretical insights, good use of sources and
    examples, focused argument that could be improved. Work of this standard may achieve good
    levels of performance on some of the criteria but not all. The discussion will address the question
    but could lean towards description rather than analysis.
    Pass (P)
    Competent descriptive discussion, some grasp of the topic, coherent style and composition,
    essentially a superficial discussion. Work of this standard might only include a limited range of
    source material and provide information rather than argument. Structure and presentation could
    require improvement and the introduction and conclusion might not clearly convey the position
    and findings of the author.
    Fail (F)
    Discussion fails to answer the set question or relies on few, if any, source material. Answer
    contains grammatical errors and/or inappropriate referencing technique and, of course, an
    absence of any referencing. Work of this standard is often brief and is unable to demonstrate a
    clear understanding of the topic and relevant issues. Responses fail to meet the learning
    objectives for the assessment.

    A similarity report provides an important indicator of whether a student's work is original or
    plagiarised. Generally, a similarity report of more than 25% warrants close scrutiny to assess
    whether the problem relates to poor writing technique or plagiarism.
    Assignment Submissions
    Students are required to submit assessment items at the time and date specified in this Subject
    Outline. Assessment items submitted after the due date will be subject to a penalty unless the
    Lecturer or Course Coordinator has given prior approval in writing for an extension of time to
    submit that item.
    Assessments should be submitted in the form specified in the subject outline or as notified by the
    Lecturer. Where assessment items are submitted electronically, the date and time the email was
    received will be considered the date and time of submission. Written papers or other physical
    submissions are to be time and date stamped as a record of receipt.
    Students whose ability to submit or attend an assessment item is affected by sickness,
    misadventure or other circumstances beyond their control, may be eligible for special
    consideration. No consideration is given when the condition or event is unrelated to the student's
    performance in a component of the assessment, or when it is considered not to be serious.
    Please refer to the Institute’s policy ‘Student Assessment Policy and Procedure’ available on the
    Institute’s web site for details.
    Assignment Extensions and Penalties
    Assignments must be submitted on the due date. Late assignments will incur a penalty as
    outlined in the Institute’s policy ‘Student Assessment Policy and Procedure’ available on the
    Institute’s web site.
    Academic Misconduct
    Academic misconduct involves cheating, collusion, plagiarism or any other conduct that
    deliberately or inadvertently claims ownership of an idea or concept without acknowledging the
    source of the information. This includes any form of activity that negates the academic integrity of
    the student or another student and/or their work.
    Plagiarism occurs when students fail to acknowledge that the ideas of others are being used.
    Specifically it occurs when:
      other people’s work and/or ideas are paraphrased and presented without a reference;
      other students’ work is copied or partly copied;
      other people’s designs, codes or images are presented as the student’s own work;
      phrases and passages are used verbatim without quotation marks and/or without a
    reference to the author or a web page;
      lecture notes are reproduced without due acknowledgement.
    Cheating occurs when a student seeks to obtain an unfair advantage in an examination or in
    other written or practical work required to be submitted or completed for assessment.
    Collusion (unauthorised collaboration) involves working with others without permission to produce
    work which is then presented as work completed independently by the student. Collusion is a
    form of plagiarism. Students should not knowingly allow their work to be copied.
    Z:\Subject Outlines\Sem-1-2014\HTC201-Exploring-Media-Landscapes.doc Page 10 of 11
    There are substantial penalties for academic misconduct. Please refer to the Institute’s
    ‘Academic Integrity and Honesty Policy and Procedure’ available on the web site for more
    information .

    Institute’s web site or the library for information on how to reference information sources using the
    APA style.
