Assignment and Assessment Methods

Australian College of Theology (ACT)

Methods for assessment vary from unit to unit. The Australian College of Theology (ACT) units usually have one major assessment – either an exam, or a major assignment worth at least 40% of your overall mark. The major assessment is marked by a Vose lecturer, but is also sent to an external moderator to check that the level of assessment is appropriate. Full assessment details can be found in your Unit Outline which is available on Vose Online. Most units will require three different assignments including book reviews, essays, tutorial presentations or case studies. Please refer to the Vose Seminary “A Guide to the Presentation of Essays” on guidelines of the style and structure of academic writing. This guideline is available on Vose Online. All students enrolled into ACT units are entitled to download EndNote for free. EndNote is a powerful bibliographic software system – further details available on Vose Online and at the Library.

Assignments should meet the requirements of the following:

      • Assignment Cover Sheet
      • Essays must conform to the requirements of the Vose Guide to Presentation of Essays (which includes ACT requirements).

Documents can be found in Student Administration and Resources on Vose Online.
All assignments require a cover sheet upon submission. Essays over 1,500 words require an abstract. All assignments must be submitted via Vose Online: www.voseonline.com

VET

Vose Training (VET) assessments vary in how they are conducted and are competency based. Final assessments all reflect work-place standards and require you to demonstrate your knowledge and skills. Each assessment will include specific instructions and learning outcomes to guide you. Some Vose Training units are designed to prepare you for higher education study – you will need to follow the guidelines listed under Vose Seminary “A Guide to the Presentation of Essays”.

 

Late Submission

Penalties apply to assignments and assessment that are not submitted by the due date. Extensions for assignments can be applied for by completing either an online Assignment Extension Form, or the PDF Assignment Extension Form found on Vose Online and submitting it to Reception. All applications must be made before the due date. Please do not approach lecturers in regards to applying for extensions. Compassionate extensions will be granted for genuine emergency situations and circumstances. However, poor planning and normal work and/or pastoral responsibilities are not generally regarded as emergencies. When submitting an assignment which has an extension granted, students must include details of the extension number on the assignment cover sheet upon submission.

For ACT units, where there is no application for an extension and the work is submitted past the due date, the ACT Late Penalties Policy will be applied. The ACT policy states:

“Unless an extension has been applied for and granted in accordance with the Late Penalty Policy, where a student submits an assessment past its due date, the assessment marks will be reduced at the rate of 3% of the total possible marks for the assessment item per calendar day, up to 14 days late.”

Non-Discriminatory Language

Vose is committed to the use of non-discriminatory language in all forms of communication. Students and staff alike should avoid the use of discriminatory language in written and oral expression in all activities undertaken within the Vose community.

Discriminatory language is that which refers in derogatory, demeaning or abusive terms to gender, race, age, sexual orientation, citizenship or nationality, ethnic or language background, physical or mental ability, or political or religious views, or which stereotypes groups in an adverse manner. This is not meant to preclude or inhibit legitimate academic debate on any issue; however the language used in such debate should be non-discriminatory and sensitive to these matters. It is especially important to avoid the use of discriminatory language in written work. The most common form of discriminatory language in academic work tends to be in the area of gender inclusiveness. Students are requested to be vigilant, ensuring that the language employed is non-discriminatory in all respects.

 

Plagiarism, Collusion and Cheating

In line with the expectations of other Australian tertiary educational institutions, and following the policy and guidelines of the Australian College of Theology, Vose Seminary regards academic misconduct as a serious matter. The following paragraphs were adapted from the ACT, Undergraduate Handbook:

Students are expected to acknowledge the source of their ideas and expressions used in their written work. To provide adequate documentation is not only an indication of academic honesty but also a courtesy enabling the marker to consult sources with ease. Deliberate failure to provide documentation may constitute plagiarism, which is subject to the charge of academic misconduct.

Plagiarism might be defined as the wilful reproduction or paraphrasing of substantial unacknowledged written passages in a student’s work, or pretending that a scholar’s ideas are the student’s own. Students are required to acknowledge by use of footnotes (or endnotes) the origin of extracts, quotes and paraphrases contained in their work. Quotations should be referenced in accordance with the approved conventions as outlined in the ‘Vose Guide to the presentation of essays’ document.

Collusion—i.e., unauthorised collaboration – Students are encouraged to discuss matters covered in units because that is one of the most practical ways in which learning occurs. However, students ought not to assist other students in the writing of individual assessments, such as providing written material to be copied.

Re-submission of Work

Material submitted for assessment in one unit may not be submitted for assessment in any other unit.

Students are advised to check with the unit coordinator or tutor about acceptable academic procedure. This is important as wilful academic misconduct may result in the student’s exclusion from the award in which he or she is enrolled for a period of one year; the awarding of a fail grade for the whole unit of which the assessment is a part; the awarding of 0% for the assessment with or without the opportunity to redeem the assignment. It is also important to note that, in the event of an allegation of academic misconduct, Vose students have the subsequent right of appeal against any adverse findings (see ACT Undergraduate Handbook).

Personal belongings

Please be aware that, over the study breaks particularly, incidents of theft and vandalism have occurred at Vose Seminary. Please do not leave personal belongings in your car or unattended at any time.
