MyLO Expectations
1.
Students are expected to maintain the highest standards of conduct across all modes of
communication, either with staff or with other students. Penalties may be imposed if the Unit
Coordinator believes that, in any instance or mode of communication, your language or
content is inappropriate or offensive. MyLO is a public forum. Due levels of respect,
professionalism and high ethical standards are expected of students at all times.
2.
Submission of assessment tasks via MyLO presumes that students have read, understood and
abide by the requirements relating to academic conduct, and in particular, those requirements
relating to plagiarism. All work submitted electronically is presumed to be “signed-off” by the
student submitting as their own work. Any breach of this requirement will lead to student
misconduct processes.
3.
MyLO is an Internet service for teaching and learning provided by the University. It is
expected that you check your units in MyLO for updates at least once a day.

MyLO has been incorporated into the delivery of this unit to enhance students’ learning experience,
by providing access to up-to-date course materials, and allowing for online discussion. In addition to
the lecture slides which are uploaded on MyLO on a weekly basis, other unit-related materials such
as supplementary readings and assessment guides can also be accessed on MyLO. Further, students
are also expected to engage in an active discussion about issues related to the unit through the
discussion forums or chat rooms that are available on MyLO: this is particularly helpful for distance
students who may utilise the facilities available on MyLO to contact their fellow distance students
and form groups to complete any group assessment tasks for this unit. In this regard, MyLO should
be treated as the unit's critical platform for learning and communication.

Submission of Assessment Items
Lodging Assessment Items
Assignments must be submitted electronically through the relevant assignment drop box in MyLO.
Students must ensure that their name, student ID, unit code, tutorial time and tutor’s name are
clearly marked on the first page. If this information is missing, the assignment will not be accepted
and, therefore, will not be marked.
Where appropriate, unit coordinators may also request students submit a paper version of their
assignments.
Please remember that you are responsible for lodging your assessment items on or before the due
date and time. We suggest you keep a copy. Even in ‘perfect’ systems, items sometimes go astray.
Late Assessment and Extension Policy
In this Policy
1. (a) ‘day’ or ‘days’ includes all calendar days, including weekends and public holidays;
(b) ‘late’ means after the due date and time; and
(c) ‘assessment items’ includes all internal non-examination based forms of assessment
2. This Policy applies to all students enrolled in TSBE Units at whatever Campus or geographical
location.
3. Students are expected to submit assessment items on or before the due date and time specified
in the relevant Unit Outline. The onus is on the student to prove the date and time of
submission.
4. Students who have a medical condition or special circumstances may apply for an extension.
Requests for extensions should, where possible, be made in writing to the Unit Coordinator on
or before the due date. Students will need to provide independent supporting documentation
to substantiate their claims.
5. Late submission of assessment items will incur a penalty of 10% of the total marks possible for
that piece of assessment for each day the assessment item is late unless an extension had been
granted on or before the relevant due date.
6. Assessment items submitted more than five (5) days late will not be accepted.
7. Academic staff do NOT have the discretion to waive a late penalty, subject to clause 4 above.
Academic Referencing and Style Guide
Before starting their assignments, students are advised to familiarise themselves with the following
electronic resources.
The first is the Harvard Referencing System Style Guide, which can be accessed from the UTAS
library: http://utas.libguides.com/content.php?pid=27520&sid=199808. The Harvard style is the
appropriate referencing style for this unit and the guide provides information on presentation of
assignments, including referencing styles. In your written work you will need to support your ideas
by referring to scholarly literature, works of art and/or inventions. It is important that you
understand how to correctly refer to the work of others and maintain academic integrity.
Failure to appropriately acknowledge the ideas of others constitutes academic dishonesty
(plagiarism), a matter considered by the University of Tasmania as a serious offence.
BAA514 Workplace Literacy
16
The second is the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics’s Writing Assignments: A Guide,
which can be accessed at: http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources. This
guide provides students with useful information about the structure and style of assignments in the
TSBE.
Review of Assessment and Results
Review of Internal Assessment
It is expected that students will adhere to the following policy for a review of any piece of
continuous/internal assessment. The term continuous/internal assessment includes any assessment
task undertaken across the teaching phase of any unit (such as an assignment, a tutorial
presentation, and online discussion, and the like), as well as any capstone assignment or take-home
exam.
Within five (5) days of release of the assessment result a student may request a meeting with the
assessor for the purpose of an informal review of the result (in accordance with Academic
Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/university-council/universitygovernance/rules). During the meeting, the student should be prepared to discuss specifically the
marks for the section(s) of the marking criteria they are disputing and why they consider their
mark(s) is/are incorrect. The assessor will provide a response to the request for review within five (5)
days of the meeting.
If the student is dissatisfied with the response they may request a formal review of internal
assessment by the Head of School, with the request being lodged within five (5) days of the informal
review being completed. A Review of Internal Assessment Form is available at the following link:
http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources/forms. The form must be
submitted to the TSBE Office.
Review of Final Exam/Result
In units with an invigilated exam students may request a review of their final exam result. You may
request to see your exam script after results have been released by completing the Access to Exam
Script Form, which is available from the TSBE Office, or at the following link –
http://www.utas.edu.au/business-and-economics/student-resources/forms. Your unit coordinator
will then contact you by email within five (5) working days of receipt of this form to go through your
exam script.
Should you require a review of your final result a formal request must be made only after
completing the review of exam script process list above. To comply with UTAS policy, this request
must be made within ten (10) days from the release of the final results (in accordance with
Academic Assessment Rule No. 2 Clause 22 – www.utas.edu.au/university-council/universitygovernance/rules). You will need to complete an Application for Review of Assessment Form, which
can be accessed from http://www.utas.edu.au/exams/exam-and-results-forms. Note that if you
have passed the unit you will be required to pay $50 for this review.
The TSBE reserves the right to refuse a student request to review final examination scripts should
this process not be followed.

assignment or an examination, and any other conduct by which a student:
(a) seeks to gain, for themselves or for any other person, any academic advantage or advancement
to which they or that other person are not entitled; or
(b) improperly disadvantages any other student.
Students engaging in any form of academic misconduct may be dealt with under the Ordinance of
Student Discipline. This can include imposition of penalties that range from a deduction/cancellation
of marks to exclusion from a unit or the University. Details of penalties that can be imposed are
available in the Ordinance of Student Discipline – Part 3 Academic Misconduct, see
http://www.utas.edu.au/university-council/university-governance/ordinances.
Plagiarism is a form of cheating. It is taking and using someone else’s thoughts, writings or
inventions and representing them as your own, for example:
•
•
•
using an author’s words without putting them in quotation marks and citing the source;
using an author’s ideas without proper acknowledgment and citation; or
copying another student’s work.
It also means using ones’ own work from previously submitted assessment items if repeating a unit.
If you have any doubts about how to refer to the work of others in your assignments, please
consult your lecturer or tutor for relevant referencing guidelines, and the academic integrity
resources on the web at http://www.academicintegrity.utas.edu.au/ The intentional copying of
someone else’s work as one’s own is a serious offence punishable by penalties that may range from
a fine or deduction/cancellation of marks and, in the most serious of cases, to exclusion from a unit,
a course, or the University.
The University and any persons authorised by the University may submit your assessable works to
a plagiarism checking service, to obtain a report on possible instances of plagiarism. Assessable
works may also be included in a reference database. It is a condition of this arrangement that the
original author’s permission is required before a work within the database can be viewed.
For further information on this statement and general referencing guidelines, see
www.utas.edu.au/plagiarism/ or follow the link under ‘Policy, Procedures and Feedback’ on the
Current Students homepage.
