Assessment

For both COMP3300 and COMP6330 students the final mark is composed of four components:

Assessment Item Weight Learning Outcomes Week Due (on Fridays 6pm)
Final Exam (this is a hurdle - you must get over 50% in this to pass the course) 30% 2,3,4 -
Individual Labs 20% 1,3 3,5,7,9,11
Individual Assignment 20% 2,3 6
Group Assignment 30% 2,5 12

From the date that your assessment marks are released, you have a period of two weeks in which to question your mark. After this period your mark will be final.

Note that consistent scaling for each of the courses may occur with the final marks.

Students must get a minimum final overall mark of at least 50% to pass the subject. Final marks are moderated by a Research School of Computer Science examiners meeting. Supplementary assessment will be awarded to those students with an overall course mark of between 45 and 49. Students who fail the hurdle and gain an overall mark of at least 45 will be given the opportunity of supplementary assessment, likely in the form of an oral examination.

Quality and integrity are expected from all students. Students should also expect this from the lecturing/tutorial staff. Please read over the ANU’s policy on this matter: http://academichonesty.anu.edu.au/.

Given the weight of assessment on labs and assignments for this course the integrity of these will be checked closely. If I have reason to believe that students have colluded or contracted out assessment items I will both pursue the matter in terms of the academic integrity process and may also under 11(4) of the assessment rule use an oral examination for the student’s entire assessment.

Important Notes

  • All submitted work may be subject to an oral examination. If the course convener deems the outcome of the oral exam to be unsatisfactory, the mark for that assessment item may be adjusted accordingly.

  • Students must get a minimum final mark of at least 50% to pass the subject and a minimum final mark of 50/100 in the final exam. Note that final marks for all courses are moderated by the School of Computing examiners meeting, so the mark you are awarded may be higher or lower than the mark calculated using the above formula.

  • Please check the Undergraduate Handbook for policy statements concerning special consideration process and special, further and supplementary examinations.

  • Quality and integrity are expected from all students. Students should also expect this from the lecturing/tutorial staff. Please read over the ANU’s policy on this matter.
