3 Extensions :

3.1 Last day for submission
Your answers to online tests must be finalised and submitted or saved in the portal by 11.55 pm AEST on the day for completion.

An assignment must be submitted by 11.55 pm AEST on the last day for submission or an approved extension date. It may be submitted before then.

The last day for submission is simply the last day on which you can submit without receiving a penalty. If an assignment is submitted after the last day for submission or an approved extension date, then the Course Examiner may apply at least the penalty applicable to late submissions in accordance with the USQ policy on late submissions. In LAW5223, consistent with the imperative in property and trusts law practice to meet deadlines, the penalty is 20% per USQ business day.

3.2 Submission after > 5 days’ extension
For Semester 2, 2020, students granted an approved extension exceeding five business days will be advised that the Course Examiner may require completion of an alternate assessment item. Students should note that approach will be adopted for all assessment tasks in LAW5223.

3.3 Applications for an extension or deferral of assessment
To apply for an extension or deferral, you must apply to the Faculty Assessments Team online. The link is at the bottom of the Assessments tab on the LAW5223 Study desk.This link prompts you as to what must be included in the application. You should make the application by the last day for submission. You must attach any necessary accompanying documents.

3.4 Conditions for an extension to be granted
The Faculty Assessments Team will decide whether to grant an extension or, if the circumstances are appropriate, give deferred assessment. Information about the grant of extensions and deferrals

3.5 Course Examiner/Moderator cannot extend or defer
In all courses offered by the School of Law and Justice (LAW or CRI or PWE), academics do not have power to grant an extension, deferred assessment, or a deferred exam. You cannot apply to the Course Examiner, Moderator or Head of School for extension or deferral and you should not ask them to support an application to the Faculty Assessments Team.

3.6 Reconsideration of marks
If unhappy with a mark on an assessment item, please consult the University Assessment Procedure.This allows a reconsideration of marks only if where it can be demonstrated there has been “over sight,omission of marking, or mathematical discrepancies in the marking of assessment tasks”.

When to apply
Apply to the course examiner for a reconsideration of marks (on the basis of any oversight, omission or mathematical discrepancy) as soon as possible, and normally within 10 USQ business days of receipt of a marked assessment – as set out in the USQ Assessment Procedure (4.2.3). Reconsideration of marks after grades are finalised will be limited to formal review or appeal. The examiner has no power to change marks in an informal way once grades are finalised.

Oversight, omission or mathematical discrepancy
A reconsideration of marks will not be undertaken just because requested. Evidence must be provided from an assignment submission and its marking that there was an oversight, omission or mathematical discrepancy. Consider:

• the mark sheet returned with the assignment;
• any comments made by the marker about the assignment;
• whether the marks allocated to each criterion have been added up correctly; and
• how a correct application of the marking criteria or calculation of the marks shows an oversight, omission or mathematical discrepancy.

If there is apparent evidence of a relevant oversight, omission or mathematical discrepancy, email the course examiner all of the following:

• the marked assignment;
• the mark sheet; and
• written reasons that explain, by reference to evidence from the assignment –

i. how correct application of marking criteria shows an oversight or omission, or how the to talling of marks shows mathematical discrepancy; and
ii. the precise change in marks considered warranted.

In written reasons, an assertion that “criterion X was not applied properly” or “I think I have demonstrated criterion X” – with nothing more – does not constitute reasons, nor does it constitute evidence to support those reasons.

The only grounds justifying a change of marks before the finalisation of grades are those set out in the Assessment Procedure. If there is evidence those grounds exist, please follow the approach above.
