To assist students in managing the assessment process an assessment calendar is issued for each term of the Preliminary and HSC Courses. The calendar is provided to students in hard copy, it is emailed to them, a copy is loaded into the Assessment Virtual Classrooms and copies are available on the College Website.
The purpose of the Assessment Calendar is to:
- provide a visual representation of the tasks scheduled each week
- indicate for each course whether the task is a ‘hand in’ or ‘exam type’ task
- show where known in advance excursions / fieldwork pertinent to a course
- indicate scheduled work placements
Students should use the assessment calendars to assist them in planning their time and setting goals for each term.
In the case of known absences students should check the assessment calendar and assessment schedules and follow the procedures outlined in the Assessment Handbook.
Students should remember that if a task is designated as a 'hand in' task, strict penalties apply for lateness (see assessment handbook for details)
