Assessment

Penalties for late submissions define what is considered as a “late submission”. Anything submitted after the given deadline is considered a late submission and how the penalties apply will affect when marking should/can start on the submissions.

The details of what penalties are applied for a late submission are below, but in summary:

“24 hours after the deadline has passed, a piece of work can only receive 40% or 10% deduction from the original mark – which ever is lower.”

The impact of this on assignment marking is the following recommendation:

Marking can begin 24+ hours after the original due date has passed

This allows sufficient time for students to submit work and obtain the appropriate penalty for submitting within 24 hours and not being penalised to the minimum mark (or lower).

 

Late submissions are defined as follows according to the Academic regulations Chapter VII. Paragraph 32.

1. The following penalties must be adhered to:

(i)    Penalties are a percentage of the maximum mark available for the assessment element which has been submitted late

(ii)   All coursework assessments must have a published submission time which should be no later than 4pm and this time must be communicated effectively to students

(iii)  Departments delivering non standard modules may apply to FLTAC (or equivalent) for exemption from (ii)

(iv) The late submission penalties which must be applied to coursework submitted after the published deadline are:

·       Up to and including 24 hours after the deadline, a penalty of 10%

·       More than 24 hours and up to and including 7 days after the deadline; either a penalty of 10% or the mark awarded is reduced to the pass mark, whichever results in the lower mark

·       More than 7 days after the deadline, a mark of zero is awarded.

Explanatory note (added May 12)

·       Para. 31: the definition of coursework does not include assessments which are scheduled, for example, examinations, presentations, performances and practicals.

·       Para. 32: Examples applying the penalties in (iv) for coursework submitted up to and including 24 hours after the deadline:

§  If the maximum mark for the assessment is 100 and a student submits the assessment 2 hours after the deadline, the student’s mark will be reduced by 10 (so that a mark of 65 will be reduced to 55, a mark of 48 will be reduced to 38 and so on).

§  If the maximum mark for the assessment is 50 and a student submits the assessment 2 hours after the deadline, the student’s mark will be reduced by 5 (so that a mark of 40 will be reduced to 35, a mark of 36 will be reduced to 31 and so on).

 

Examples applying the penalties in (iv) for coursework submitted more than 24 hours and up to and including 7 days after the deadline:

 

Where the maximum mark for the assessment is 100

Student A B C D E
Pre-penalty mark 100 50 45 40 30
10% penalty (of the maximum mark – in this case 100) 90 40 35 30 20

or

Mark awarded is reduced to the pass mark 40 40 40 40 40
 
Outcome (the lower mark) 40 40 35 30 20

§  These penalties should be taken into account when deciding submission dates.

§  Where multiple submissions (hardcopy and electronic copy) are required guidance must make clear to students whether failure to submit in only one format constitutes ‘non submission’.

The university academic regulations state the following in relation to anonymous marking;

All forms of summative1 assessment must be marked2 anonymously where this is practicable3. Where it is considered that anonymity is not practicable it should be declared in the module specification and approved as part of the usual module approval process.

The regulation is Chapter III. paragraph 23.

For use in Canvas, there are several key points to make this clearer for application:

  1. Anonymous marking must be applied to summative work where practical (i.e. not for performances etc)
    • It is the marking of the work that must be done anonymously
    • This may include the subsequent moderation of marks
    • This may include curving marks for boards
    • This may include discussion of marks at board
  2. Where this is practicable
    • SpeedGrader can be used to make the marking process anonymous
    • Currently, the Moderation tool does not allow for anonymous marking

Anonymous marking is subject to review in 2016/17 as part of a LEAP review of Assessment regulations.
