Advice on the

procedure for Turnitin submission will be provided on the HLT1IPP LMS site, in the online showbag, and was reviewed in the week one workshop. You will have an opportunity to submit essay drafts to Turnitin to check the similarity index for issues with paraphrasing and citation, and make amendments if required, before finalising the essay by the due date.
Your essay must be submitted to Turnitin via the LMS site for HLT1IPP, and under your own access code (otherwise it will be attributed to the person who logged onto the LMS site). You can submit several drafts prior to the due date and time. The report on your first submission will be available almost immediately, but reports on subsequent submissions can take 24 hours to process. You will be able to check for inappropriate ‘matches’ and then correct these and re-submit your work.
The Turnitin report will also enable your Workshop Facilitator to assess the level of originality of your essay. The report from this text-matching software may impact on your grade if it is evident if the essay is not your own original work.
Your paper must be submitted via Turnitin in the Assessment 2: Individual Essay folder on your HLT1IPP LMS site.

Additionally, members of the teaching and coordination team moderate some assignments for each facilitator to ensure consistency of marking. If your assignment has been moderated, this will be indicated in your general comments.
Students can request a remark for assignments worth 20% or more. Re-marks must be sought with good reason. The University has formal policies and procedures regarding the re-mark of student work at the student’s request. The process to be followed to seek a remark is as follows:
1. First, please discuss your queries or concerns about the grading of your assignment with your Facilitator. Contact your Facilitator by email to organise a meeting or phone discussion. The review must take place within ten working days of the publication of the result. The Facilitator will discuss your performance in the assessment task with reference to the grading criteria and will also check that the result has been calculated correctly but will not re-mark the work. This is an opportunity for you to understand why you have gained or lost marks, not to negotiate a different mark.
2. If you are not satisfied with the response from this meeting then you have a further 10 working days to apply in writing to the Subject Coordinator (Dr Kath Hoare) for a re-mark of the assignment. The application for re-mark must:
Include evidence that the assignment has been reviewed by the Facilitator Report the result of the review
Explain the grounds on which the re-mark is sought.
A student may request a re-mark of an assessable piece of work only on the grounds that the original assessment: i) was biased; or ii) failed to follow the published assessment criteria or grading scheme for the assessment task. The student must provide evidence to support the grounds claimed.
