Due date must be selected from the date picker
‘To be advised’ checkbox must be selected
‘To be advised’ option
Should be selected when the date is not yet known; or for an end-of-session exam that is centrally administered by the Exams Office in Division of Student Administration. The ‘Requirements’ section of an Exam Item should explain how the student will be informed of the exam date, time and location.
Centrally Administered Exam option
Applies to templates from 201930.
Exam Items contain an option to indicate that the exam is centrally administered by DSA. If selected, the Due date option of ‘To be advised’ is auto-selected and a Fixed Autotext will display to students against the Due date field. The Autotext includes hyperlinks to the exam timetable and the Student Portal exams page.
The autotext displays against the Due date so students can click through to the Student Portal.
Due date outside the subject offering teaching session (e.g. year long/multi session subjects)
In some circumstances, a Due date outside the offering teaching session will need to be selected. For example, an Outline is created for Session 1 of a year long subject; however, Due dates need to be selected for assessments due during Session 2 of the year long subject. In this case, upon entering the date the system will prompt you to confirm your Due date selection. If indeed you had intended to select a date outside of the teaching session of the offering, simply confirm you wish to keep your selection. If not, return to the date picker to change the date. A decision to keep a Due date outside of session will be added to the History Log.
Due date within the last week of teaching
That is, within the week prior to the session’s final examination period
As per Section 3 of the Examination Administration Policy, in subjects with a final examination, Subject Convenors may not schedule an examination or assessment worth 20% or more during the week prior to the formal examination period (except with approval of the Executive Dean or their delegate). In addition, Section 13 (111) of the Assessment Policy - Coursework Subjects states that where an assessment is directly relevant to an examination, assessments that have been submitted by the Due date shall normally be returned to students at least one week before the examination is held.
Upon entering a date within the last week of teaching, you will be prompted to either confirm your Due date selection; indicate there is no final exam; or return to the date picker to change the date. A decision to keep a Due date within the last week of teaching; or an indication that there is no final exam; will be added to the History Log.
