Assessment Dates
The course Learning Advisor will advise you of all assessment dates when you start the course.

Further Assessment Opportunities
Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery school policy, following national guidelines, is to allow one reassessment opportunity for internally assessed standards where feasible for students who failed to gain credit or higher at the first attempt. Students will also need to demonstrate that they have made progress in their learning since the first assessment to make the second opportunity worthwhile. Students should this read course outline carefully to make sure that they fully understand reassessment as it applies to this subject.

If a resubmission on any internally assessed standard is required by the Learning Advisor, the student will be instructed to attend a verbal and/or written resubmission class. Here they will be given the opportunity to provide verbal or written corrections and/or validation of their work. In the case of reassessments, students will be given a maximum of five weeks following the final due date, to hand in work for reassessment.

Authenticity
Assessment work completed must be your own work. For each assessment submitted, you will be asked to sign a statutory declaration confirming that the work is your own. Where evidence indicates work presented is not your own, the school policy on “Breaches of the Rules” will be followed.

Retention of Student Work
Student internal assessment material will be retained by the department until it is no longer required for moderation purposes.

Appeals
Appeals of grades awarded are to be made within two weeks of the return of the assessed work. Where a grade is appealed, school policy will be followed.

Late work
Student work is due on the date set at the time of the assessment activity. Late work will not be accepted unless an extension has been arranged with the LA before the due date.

Non submission of work / No assessment taken place
No grade will be awarded when no assessment has taken place for whatever reason.

Verification of Grades
Students will be required to verify grades awarded by signing the results slip attached to each piece of internally assessed work.
