Topic: The examination may cover content from any part of the entire subject from Topic
1 to Topic 12.
Task Details: 2 hour closed book exam.
The exam will be drawn from both the lectures and tutorials (Another reason not to miss tutorials!)
3. Format for essays & reports
MGMT708 T0216 ASSESSMENT GUIDELINES
3.1 Assignment Format
Essays and reports are to be TYPED, in Microsoft Word ( .doc or .docx format).
They are to be prepared and presented in the format detailed in the table below. This assists the lecturer and tutors in assessing your work. Further, as the majority of organisations require the use of standard formats, this process will provide you with helpful experience.
Marks will be deducted for assignments which do not use this format.
Page size A4
Font Times New Roman
Point size 12 point
Line spacing 1 and a half lines
Margins 2.5 cms, top, bottom, left and right margins
Paragraph Block set up
Page numbers Bottom header, right corner on EVERY page
Student name and Student Number Top header, right corner of EVERY page
Word count Top header, page 1.
Do NOT:
• use colour printing, formatting templates, plastic, fancy or bound covers when submitting your assignments
• use footnotes or endnotes.
3.2 Writing Assignments and Reports
Essay assignments should be written in formal narrative academic writing style that clearly identifies the sources of your ideas. Your assignments will be evaluated for clarity of expression, overall presentation, logical organisation, paragraphing, and grammar, spelling and punctuation.
They must have a clear and coherent argument.
As they are academic assignments, please do not use abbreviated or casual language, or bracketed comments. For essays, use headings sparingly.
3.3 Reference List
You are required to provide an accurate reference list, which includes every book, or journal article which you have cited in your assignment. This reference list is to be placed at the end of your assignment on a separate page.
3.3.1 Correct Referencing
Please remember that all sources used in assessment tasks MUST be suitably referenced.
Failure to acknowledge sources is plagiarism (see section below), and as such is a very serious academic issue. Students plagiarising run the risk of severe penalties ranging from a reduction through to 0 marks for a first offence for a single assessment task, to exclusion from KOI in the most serious repeat cases. Exclusion has serious visa implications. The easiest way to avoid plagiarising is to reference all sources.

MGMT708 T0216 ASSESSMENT GUIDELINES 3.3.2 Harvard – Anglia 2008 referencing
Harvard referencing is the required method – in-text referencing using Author’s Surname (family name) and year of publication. While there are many versions of Harvard referencing, the Harvard – Anglia 2008 referencing is to be used.
A Referencing Guide “Harvard Anglia Referencing”, and a Referencing Tutorial can be found in the right hand menu strip in Moodle on all subject pages.
An easy way to reference correctly is to use Microsoft Office 2010 Word’s referencing function (please note that other versions and programs are likely to be different). To use the referencing function, click on the References Tab in the menu ribbon – students should choose Harvard – Anglia 2008 as the style. A guide to Harvard – Anglia 2008 can be found in Moodle.
4 Late Penalties & Extensions
An important part of business life is the ability to meet deadlines. With this in mind, any assessment items handed in after the due date/time will attract a late penalty as follows:
4.1 In Class Tests
o No extensions permitted or granted – a supplementary test only may be permitted under very special circumstances where acceptable supporting evidence is provided.
o Missing a class test will result in 0 marks for that assessment element unless the above applies.
4.2 Written Assessments
For every day late marks will be deducted at the rate of - 5% of the total available marks per calendar day unless an extension is approved
4.3 Final Exam
If students are unable to attend the final exam due to illness or some other event (acceptable to KOI), they must:
1. Advise KOI administration by phone and in writing (email: extensions@koi.edu.au) as soon as possible, but no later than three (3) working days after the exam date, that they will be / were absent and the reasons. They will be advised in writing (email) as to whether the circumstances are acceptable.
2. Compete a Request for Deferred Exam Form (available from the Reception Desk and on the KOI Website (Forms), as soon as possible and submit to Reception – this may be sent as an email attachment to extensions@koi.edu.au if the student is unable to attend KOI in person.
3. Provide acceptable documentary evidence in the form of a medical certificate, police report or some other form that will be accepted by KOI
4. Agree to attend a deferred exam as set by KOI – please note that there will only be one deferred exam – failure to attend this may mean students are unable to complete (pass) the subject and will need to re-do the entire subject.
4.4 Applying for an Extension:
If students are unable to submit or attend an assessment when due, and extensions are possible, they must apply by completing a Request for Extension form (available from the KOI Reception Desk and in Moodle (Student Information Centre), as soon as possible but no later than three (3) working days of the assessment due date.
The completed form needs to be submitted with supporting documentation to Reception, or may be emailed to extensions@koi.edu.au
Students and lecturers / tutors will be advised of the outcome of the extension request as soon as practicable.
MGMT708 T0216 ASSESSMENT GUIDELINES
Appropriate documentary evidence to support the request for an extension must be supplied. Please remember there is no guarantee of an extension being granted, and poor organisation is not a satisfactory reason to be granted an extension.
5. Academic integrity
Academic integrity is a key principle underpinning the awarding of marks and grades for assessments and examinations. Students must ensure that the work they submit for assessment is their own and acknowledges the work, ideas and data of others.
5.1 Authorship – KOI expects students to submit their own original work in both
assessment and exams. All students agree to a statement of authorship when submitting assessments online via Moodle, stating that the work submitted is their own original work. Authorship becomes as issue under the following circumstances:
Academic misconduct is defined as “any action or attempted action that may result in an unfair academic advantage to one or more students”. This covers a wide range of behaviours and activities, including:
5.2 Plagiarism is the presentation of work, ideas or data of others as one’s own, without
appropriate acknowledgement and referencing. It includes:
• Handing in work created by someone else, whether copied from another student, written by someone else, or from any published or electronic source, is fraud, and falls under the general Plagiarism guidelines.
• Students who willingly allow another student to copy their work in any assessment situation may be considered to conclude to the copying/cheating, and similar penalties may be applied.
• Copying / cheating in tests and exams also fall under these guidelines. Such incidents will be treated just as seriously as other forms of plagiarism.
Other examples of plagiarism include:
• the inclusion of one or more sentences from another person’s work without the use of quotation marks and acknowledgement of the source (Note: a general acknowledgement of the source but without the use of quotation marks to show the extent of copied text may still constitute plagiarism);
• the use of one or more sentences from the work of another person where a few words have been changed, or where the order of a few words has been changed;
• copying the work of another student, with or without their permission;
• copying tables, graphs, images, designs, computer programs and any other data, ideas or work without appropriate acknowledgement and referencing.
Poor or inadequate referencing is not necessarily plagiarism, though it still fails to meet the requirements for good academic practice.
5.3 Self-Plagiarism – the re-use of one’s own work for more than one assessment, without
acknowledgement and referencing.
5.4 Cheating – fraud, dishonesty or deceit of any kind in relation to an academic
assessment. Examples include:
• copying or attempting to copy from other students in an assessment, or in an examination;
• communicating with others during an examination;
• using any unauthorised materials, or mechanical or electronic devices in an examination;
• tampering with examination or assessment materials;

MGMT708 T0216 ASSESSMENT GUIDELINES
• leaving examination or test answer papers exposed to the view of other students;
• colluding with other students in individual assessments, such as online quizzes and/or written work;
• allowing others to provide you with any materials that give you an unfair advantage in an assessment;
• purchasing material and submitting it as your own work;
• providing materials to other students to enable them to present it in part or whole as their own work;
• completing an individual assessment for another person, or having someone else complete all or part of your individual assessment and submitting it as your own work;
• making changes to an assignment that has been marked then returning it for re-marking claiming that it was not correctly marked;
• taking an examination for another person or having another person take an examination for you;
• providing forged or falsified academic, medical or other documents in order to gain unfair academic advantage;
• making a false claim in relation to an assessment or examination, in order to obtain an unfair advantage;
• the falsification of data, information or citations as part of an assessment;
• attempting to prevent other students from completing their assessment work. 5.5 Other Academic Misconduct
Any act or omission that can be regarded as academically dishonest will be treated according to this Policy. Examples of such behaviour include:
• failing to abide by reasonable directions of a member of staff regarding the submission of an assignment or conduct in an examination;
• altering group assessment work that has been agreed as final by all participating students prior to submission without the consent of the other students;
• publishing or distributing recordings of classes without permission of the subject coordinator.
