2.6 Review of Grade, Deferred Exams & Supplementary Exams/Assessments
Review of Grade:
There may be instances when you believe that your final grade in a subject does not accurately reflect your performance against the marking criteria. Section 8 of the ICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION Assessment and Assessment Appeals Policy (www.koi.edu.au) describes the grounds on which you may apply for a Review of Grade.
If you have a concern about your marks and you are unable to resolve it with the Academic staff concerned, then you can apply for a formal Review of Grade as explained in section 3.2(e) Appeals Process below. Please note the time limits for requesting a review. Please ensure you read the Review of Grade information before submitting an application.
Review of Grade Day:
Final exam scripts will not normally be returned to students. Students can obtain feedback on their exam performance and their results for the whole subject at the Review of Grade Day. KOI will hold the Review of Grade Day for all subjects studied in T322. The ROG Day will be in week 16, the date will be announced at a later date and the students will be notified through Moodle/KOI email.
Only final exams and whole subject results will be discussed as all other assessments should have been reviewed during the trimester. Further information about Review of Grade Day will be available through Moodle.
If you fail one or more subjects and you wish to consider applying for a Review of Grade you are STRONGLY ADVISED to attend the Review of Grade Day. You will have the chance to discuss your final exam and subject result with your lecturer, and will be advised if you have valid reasons for applying for a Review of Grade (see Section 3.2 below and the ICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION Assessment and Assessment Appeals Policy).
A formal request for a review of grade may not be considered unless you first contact the subject coordinator to discuss the result.
If you wish to apply for a deferred exam because you are unable to attend the scheduled exam, you should submit the ICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION Assignment Extension / Exam Deferment Form available by contacting [email protected] as soon as possible, but no later than three (3) working days of the assessment due date.
If you miss your mid-trimester or final exam there is no guarantee you will be offered a deferred exam. You must apply within the stated timeframe and satisfy the conditions for approval to be offered a deferred
exam (see Section 8.1 of the Assessment and Assessment Appeals Policy and the Application for Assignment Extension or Deferred Exam Forms). In assessing your request for a deferred exam, KOI will take into account the information you provide, the severity of the event or circumstance, your performance on other items of ICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION assessment in the subject, class attendance and your history of previous applications for special consideration.
Deferred mid-trimester exams will be held before the end of week 9. Deferred final exams will be held on two days during week 1 or 2 in the next trimester. You will not normally be granted a deferred exam on the grounds that you mistook the time, date or place of an examination, or that you have made arrangements to be elsewhere at that time; for example, have booked plane tickets.
If you are offered a deferred exam, but do not attend you will be awarded 0 marks for the exam. This may mean it becomes difficult for you to pass the subject. If you apply for a deferred exam within the required time frame and satisfy the conditions you will be advised by email (to your KOI student email address) of the time and date for the deferred exam. Please ensure that you are available to take the exam at this time.
Marks awarded for the deferred exam will be the marks awarded for that item of assessment towards your final mark in the subject.
Supplementary Assessments (Exams and Assessments):
A supplementaryICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION assessment may be offered to students to provide a final opportunity to demonstrate successful achievement of the learning outcomes of a subject. Supplementary assessments are only offered at the discretion of the Board of Examiners. In considering whether or not to offer a supplementary assessment, KOI will take into account your performance on all the major assessment items in the subject, your attendance, participation and your history of any previous special considerations.
If you are offered a supplementary ICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION assessment, you will be advised by email to your KOI student email address of the time and due date for the supplementary assessment – supplementary exams will normally be held at the same time as deferred final exams during week 1 or week 2 of the next trimester.
You must pass the supplementary assessment to pass the subject. The maximum grade you can achieve in a subject based on a supplementary assessment is a PASS grade.
- are offered a supplementary assessment, but fail it;
- are offered a supplementary exam, but do not attend; or
- are offered a supplementary assessment but do not submit by the due date; you will receive a FAIL grade for the subject.
Students are also eligible for a supplementary assessment for their final subject in a course where they fail the subject but have successfully completed all other subjects in the course. You must have completed all major assessment tasks for the subject and obtained a passing mark on at least one of the major assessment tasks to be eligible for a supplementary assessment.
If you believe you meet the criteria for a supplementary assessment for the final subject in your course, but have not received an offer, complete the Complaint, Grievance, Appeal Form and send your form to [email protected]. The deadline for applying for supplementary assessment is the Friday of the first week of classes in the next trimester.

3.2 General information about assessment
- Late Penalties and Extensions
An important part of business life and key to achieving KOI’s graduate outcome of Professional Skills is the ability to manage workloads and meet deadlines. CompletingICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION assessment tasks on time is a good way to master these habits.
Students who miss mid-trimester tests and final exams without a valid and accepted reason may not be granted a deferred exam and will be awarded 0 marks for the assessment item. Assessment items which are missed or submitted after the due date/time will attract a penalty unless there is a compelling reason (see below). These penalties are designed to encourage students to develop good time management practices, and to create equity for all students.
Any penalties applied will only be up to the maximum marks available for the specific piece of assessment attracting the penalty.
Late penalties, granting of extensions and deferred exams are based on the following:
In Class Tests and Quizzes (excluding Mid-Trimester Tests)
- Generally, extensions are not permitted. A make-up test may only be permitted under very special circumstances where acceptable supporting evidence of illness, hardship or unavoidable problems preventing completion of the assessment is provided (see section (b) below). The procedures and timing to apply for a make-up test (only if available) are as shown in the section Applying for an Extension (see below).
- Missing a class test will result in 0 marks for that assessment item unless the above applies.
WrittenICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION Assessments and Video Assessments
- There is a late penalty of 5% of the total available marks per calendar day unless an extension is approved (see Applying for an Extension section below).
- Generally, extensions are not permitted. Missing a presentation will result in 0 marks for that assessment item. The rules for make-up presentations are the same as for missing in-class tests (described above).
For group presentations, if serious circumstances prevent some members of the group from participating, the members of the group who are present should make their contributions as agreed. If a make-up presentation is approved, the other members of the group will be able to make their individual presentation later and will be marked according to the marking rubric. A video presentation may be used to facilitate the process.
Mid-Trimester Tests and Final Exams
If students are unable to attend mid-trimester tests or final exams due to illness, hardship or some other unavoidable problem (acceptable to KOI), they must:
- Complete the ICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION Assignment Extension / Exam Deferment Form available by contacting [email protected] as soon as possible, but no later than three (3) working days after the exam date.
- Provide acceptable documentary evidence (see section (b) below).
- Agree to attend the deferred exam as set by KOI if a deferred exam is approved.
- There will only be one deferred exam offered.
- Marks obtained for the deferred exam will be the marks awarded for that assessment item.
- If you miss the deferred exam you will be awarded 0 marks for the assessment item. This may mean you are unable to pass the subject.
- Applying for an Extension
If students are unable to submit or attend an assessment when due, they must
- Complete the ICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION Assignment Extension / Exam Deferment Form available by contacting [email protected] as soon as possible, but no later than three (3) working days of the assessment due date.
- Provide acceptable documentary evidence in the form of a medical certificate, police report or some other appropriate evidence of illness or hardship, or a technician’s report on problems with computer or communications technology, or a signed and witnessed statutory declaration explaining the circumstances.
- Students and lecturers / tutors will be advised of the outcome of the extension request as soon as practicable.
Please remember there is no guarantee of an extension being granted, and poor organisation is not a satisfactory reason to be granted an extension.
d) Referencing and Plagiarism
Please remember that all sources used in assessment tasks must be suitably referenced.
Failure to acknowledge sources is plagiarism, and as such is a very serious academic issue. Students plagiarising run the risk of severe penalties ranging from a reduction in marks through to 0 marks for a first offence for a single ICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION 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.
Harvard referencing is the required method – in-text referencing using Author’s Surname (family name) and year of publication. A Referencing Guide, “Harvard Referencing”, and a Referencing Tutorial can be found on the right-hand menu strip in Moodle on all subject pages.
An effective way to reference correctly is to use Microsoft 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.
Authorship is also an issue under plagiarism – KOI expects students to submit their own original work in both assessment and exams, or the original work of their group in the case of a group project. All students agree to a statement of authorship when submitting ICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION assessments online via Moodle, stating that the work submitted is their own original work.
The following are examples of academic misconduct and can attract severe penalties:
- Handing in work created by someone else (without acknowledgement), 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.
- Copying / cheating in tests and exams is academic misconduct. Such incidents will be treated just as seriously as other forms of plagiarism.
- Students who willingly allow another student to copy their work in any assessment may be considered to assisting in copying/cheating, and similar penalties may be applied.
Where a subject coordinator considers that a student might have engaged in academic misconduct, KOI may require the student to undertake an additional oral exam as a part of the ICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION assessment for the subject, as a way of testing the student’s understanding of their work.
Further information can be found on the KOI website.
The Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act (1992) makes it unlawful to treat people with a disability less fairly than people without a disability. In the context of this subject, the principle of Reasonable Adjustment is applied to ensure that participants with a disability have equitable access to all aspects of the learning for the subject. For assessment, this means that barriers to their demonstrating competence are removed wherever it is reasonably practical to do so.
Examples of reasonable adjustment in assessment may include:
- provision of an oral ICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION assessment, rather than a written assessment
- provision of extra time
- use of adaptive technology.
The focus of the adjusted assessment should be on enabling the student to demonstrate achievement of the learning outcomes for the subject, rather than on the method of assessment.
f) Appeals Process
Full details of the KOI Assessment and Assessment Appeals Policy may be obtained in hard copy from the Library, and on the KOI website www.koi.edu.au under Policies and Forms.
Assessments and Mid-Trimester Exams:
Where students are not satisfied with the results of an assessment, including mid-trimester exams, they have the right to appeal. The process is as follows:
- Discuss the ICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION assessment with their tutor or lecturer – students should identify where they feel more marks should have been awarded – students should provide valid reasons based on the marking guide provided for the assessment. Reasons such as “I worked really hard” are not considered valid.
- If still not satisfied, students should complete an Application for Review of Assessment Marks form, clearly explaining the reasons for seeking a review. This form is available from the KOI website under Policies and Forms and is also available at KOI Reception (Kent St, Market St and O’Connell St). The completed Application for Review of Assessment Marks form should be submitted as explained on the form with supporting evidence attached to [email protected] .
- The form must be submitted within ten (10) working days of the return of the marked assessment, or within five (5) working days after the return of the assessment if the assessment is returned after the end of the trimester.
Review of Grade – whole of subject and final exams:
Where students are not satisfied with the results of the whole subject or with their final exam results, they have the right to request a Review of Grade – see the ICT203 HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTION Assessment and Assessment Appeals Policy for more information.
An Application for Review of Grade/Assessment Form (available from the KOI Website under Policies and Forms and from KOI Reception at Kent St, Market St and O’Connell St) should be completed clearly explaining the grounds for the application. The completed application should be submitted as explained on the form, with supporting evidence attached to [email protected] .
