Email Etiquette: Consultation with your subject coordinator and/or teachers via email
Your teachers receive many emails each day. Unless the email is of a personal nature, students should post their
query on the subject Moodle forum site so all students can benefit from the information provided in the answer.
If emailing directly, in order to enable them to respond to your emails appropriately and in a timely fashion,
students are asked to observe basic requirements of professional communication:
Consider what the communication is about

Is your question addressed elsewhere (e.g. in this subject outline or, where applicable, on the subject’s
eLearning site)?
Is it something that is better discussed in person or by telephone? This may be the case if your query

requires a lengthy response or a dialogue in order to address. If so, see consultation times above and/or
schedule an appointment.
 Are you addressing your request to the most appropriate person?
Specific email title/header to enable easy identification of subject related/student emails
 Identify the subject code of the subject you are enquiring about (as your teacher may be involved in
more than one subject) in the email header. Add a brief, specific header after the subject code where
appropriate.
Professional courtesy
 Address your teacher appropriately by name (and formal title if you do not yet know them).
 Use full words (avoid ‘text-speak’ abbreviations), correct grammar and correct spelling.
 Be respectful and courteous.
 Academics will normally respond within 1-2 business days. If the matter is urgent, you may wish to
telephone the teaching staff whose contact details are given in this subject outline or contact the
School.
 Please ensure that you include your full name and identify your seminar or tutorial group in your email
so that your teachers know who they are communicating with and can follow-up personally where
appropriate.

SUPPLEMENTARY ASSESSMENTS
Supplementary assessment may be offered to students whose performance in this subject is close to that required
to pass the subject, and are otherwise identified as meriting an offer of a supplementary assessment. The Subject
Coordinator will determine the precise form of supplementary assessment at the time the offer of a
supplementary is made. In some circumstances you may be offered a supplementary exam. For more
information about Supplementary Exams refer to
https://www.uow.edu.au/student/exams/timetabledates/index.html
SUPPLEMENTARY EXAMINATIONS
Students who suffer illness or other circumstances beyond their control which are likely to affect their academic
performance on the day of an examination should not attempt the exam. These students should obtain a Medical
Certificate or other approved supporting documentation and follow the University’s Academic Consideration
application process to apply for a supplementary exam. The School will not approve students to re-sit an
examination. See Section C, Student Academic Consideration Policy for further details.
Students approved for a supplementary examination will receive a minimum of five (5) days’ notice via
SOLSMail, regarding the examination date, time and location. Supplementary exam period dates can be found
at https://www.uow.edu.au/student/exams/timetabledates/index.html.
UOW GRADE DESCRIPTORS
MGNT803 Subject Outline Trimester 3, 2019 Sydney On Campus Page 19 of 22
The UOW Grade Descriptors are general statements that communicate what our grades represent, in terms of
standards of performance, and provide a frame of reference to ensure that assessment practice across the
University is appropriate, consistent and fair. Grade Descriptors are expressed in general terms so that they are
applicable to a broad range of disciplines. For more information on the UOW grade descriptors see:
https://www.uow.edu.au/curriculum-transformation/aqc/uowgradedescriptors/index.html
MINIMUM PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS
To be eligible to pass this subject, students must complete all assessment tasks for this subject. In addition, you
must achieve a total mark of 50% or over for all assessment tasks and obtain a minimum of 50% in the final
examination or major piece of assessment (where there is no final exam).
In accordance with the General Course Rules where a student gains a mark of 50 or greater and does not meet
the specified level in an assessment task required to pass the subject, a Technical Fail (TF) grade for the subject
will appear on their Academic Transcript. Where a Technical Fail is given the following applies:
a. Failure of the subject;
b. a TF without a mark will be granted;
c. a TF will be presented on the student’s academic transcript;
d. The allocated mark of 49 will be used as the WAM calculation for subjects at all levels.
Failure to complete all assessment tasks will normally result in failure of the entire subject, other marks
notwithstanding.
Students should note that each credit point normally requires about 2 hours of study per week. Thus, a 6 credit
point subject requires that students commit about 12 hours study a week, including attendance at lectures and
tutorials
Students who fail a subject will not normally be eligible for a supplementary exam but may be approved if
extenuating circumstances exist. Approval for a supplementary exam in these circumstances needs to be given
by the relevant Head of School and Faculty Assessment Committee. Students who believe they may be eligible,
and who have not already been advised accordingly, should consult their Lecturer or Subject Coordinator.
ASSESSMENT QUALITY CYCLE
The UOW Assessment Quality Cycle provides a level of assurance that assessment practices across the
University are appropriate, consistent and fair. Quality assurance activities are undertaken to support the
continuous improvement of assessment and promote good practices in relation to assessment design, marking
and review of the subject prior to subsequent delivery.
COLLECTION
Assessment items will normally be returned to students within three (3) weeks of the due date. Assessment tasks
which are relevant to the final examination for the subject will be marked and available for collection prior to
the study week before the final examination.
RETENTION
The university retains records of student academic work in accordance with the University Records
Management Policy and the State Records Act 1988 and uses these records in accordance with the University
Privacy Policy and the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998.
SCALING
Marks awarded for any assessment task or part of any assessment task, including an examination may be subject
to scaling at the end of the session. Marks will be scaled only when unpredicted circumstances occur and in
order to ensure fairness of marking across groups of students. The method of scaling will depend on the type of
MGNT803 Subject Outline Trimester 3, 2019 Sydney On Campus Page 20 of 22
scaling required by the circumstances. When scaling is deemed necessary, it will follow a detailed consideration
by the Unit Assessment Committee and/or the Faculty Assessment Committee of the marks of the group of
students concerned. Scaling will not affect any individual student’s rank order within their cohort. For more
information please refer to Standards for the Finalisation of Student Results – Schedule 1: Scaling Guidelines
https://www.uow.edu.au/about/policy/UOW039331.html for details.
LEARNING ANALYTICS
Learning Analytics data (such as student engagement with Moodle, access to recorded lectures, University
Library usage, task marks, and use of SOLS) may be used by the Subject Coordinator and your faculty’s Head of
Students to assist in analysing student engagement, and to identify and recommend support to students who may
be at risk of failure. If you have questions about the kinds of data the University uses, how we collect it, and
how we protect your privacy in the use of this data, please refer to
https://www.uow.edu.au/about/privacy/index.html.
ASSURANCE OF LEARNING
What will students learn in their degree?
The Faculty of Business ensures each degree has specified course learning outcomes which assure that students
attain knowledge, skills and competencies at the appropriate qualification level. These course learning outcomes
align with the curriculum. These are evaluated through existing assessment tasks within subjects.
The Faculty uses Assurance of Learning (AOL) to assess how students meet the specified course learning
outcomes and how well our graduates have achieved these. AOL collects and analyses student results data to
continuously improve degrees offered by the Faculty which leads to improved student learning.
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY
The University’s Academic Integrity and Plagiarism Policy, school moodle sites and subject guides clearly set
out the University’s expectation that students submit only their own original work for assessment and avoid
plagiarising the work of others or cheating. Re-using any of your own work (either in part or in full) which you
have submitted previously for assessment is not permitted without appropriate acknowledgement. Plagiarism
can be detected and has led to students being expelled from the University.
The use by students of any website that provides access to essays or other assessment items (sometimes
marketed as ‘resources’), is extremely unwise. Students who provide an assessment item (or provide access to an
assessment item) to others, either directly or indirectly (for example by uploading an assessment item to a
website) are considered by the university to be intentionally or recklessly helping other students to cheat.
Uploading an assessment task, subject outline or other course materials without express permission of the
University is considered academic misconduct and students place themselves at risk of being expelled from the
University.
Students should visit the following University website and become familiar with the University’s policy on
plagiarism https://www.uow.edu.au/about/policy/UOW058648.html.
MGNT803 Subject Outline Trimester 3, 2019 Sydney On Campus Page 21 of 22
PLAGIARISM PREVENTION
The School has an e-learning module which aims to orientate you with the knowledge and resources to:
 avoid problems related to plagiarism
 develop your capacity to integrate evidence into your arguments
 reference correctly.
The online module is openly available for use by students at any stage in their degree. You are strongly
encouraged to use the module to help in assessing the academic integrity of your written work. The module can
be accessed via https://moodle.uowplatform.edu.au/course/view.php?id=5679.
TURNITIN
Turnitin is a service used by UOW as a tool educating students about the importance of correct citations and
referencing techniques in addition to identifying where students have copied or reused the work of others –
known as plagiarism. For tips about writing with academic integrity and avoiding plagiarism please see above:
Academic Integrity and Plagiarism and https://www.uow.edu.au/student/services/ld/students/UOW021315.html
The Turnitin system checks each student’s written assessment against electronic text;


on the publicly accessible Internet,
in published works (including ABI/Inform, Periodical Abstracts, Business dateline, and electronic
books),
on the ProQuest and Gale commercial databases, and
in every assignment previously submitted to Turnitin

When a student submits his/her written assessment, the system generates an ‘originality report’ that highlights
the similarity found between the assessment and all the sources checked by Turnitin. Turnitin does not check
that references are in the correct Harvard format. It is the student’s responsibility to check that all references
follow the Harvard format detailed on https://uow.libguides.com/refcite/uowharvard.
It is compulsory for all students to submit all written assignments (final version) in a word (.doc/.docx) format
into the Turnitin system regardless of whether it is electronic or paper based. Your lecturer will advise whether a
hard copy of the report is required with any paper based assignment submission.
Students are encouraged to submit drafts of their assignment to Turnitin before the due date, thus enabling
students to check their referencing and rectify any issues before submission of the final version.
1. Use one document name only for each assignment that includes your UOW student number
2. Any resubmissions must use the same document name as the original submission
3. References must be included in your Turnitin submission
4. Do not include the assignment topic question at the beginning of your submission
5. Where a paper based copy is required with the assignment submission, the originality report provided
with the assignment submission must be consistent with your last submission to Turnitin
Failure to comply with these requirements may result in penalties being applied.
Please access the Moodle site for this subject for further Turnitin details.

REFERENCING – WHY DO YOU NEED TO REFERENCE?
At University it is necessary to acknowledge the sources of information and ideas that you have incorporated in
your assessment tasks. Failure to do this thoroughly may result in accusations of plagiarism: this is the academic
equivalent of stealing (because by not acknowledging someone else’s work, you are presenting it as your own).
Plagiarism is taken very seriously by the University and may result in expulsion from the University.
Referencing is not only about acknowledging other people’s work; accurate referencing and lists of references
are beneficial when researching a topic as they allow the reader to follow up information and read further in the
area. In a sense, references provide readers with clues to help them explore different avenues of a topic. This
aspect of referencing will become more valuable to you as you progress in your studies.
There is a correct procedure that must be followed when referencing and using footnotes. Not complying with
these set techniques and format will most likely result in loss of marks. When writing an essay it is easiest to
reference as you go, making sure you are writing down all relevant information. This will save hours trying to
find the source again in the library.
THE HARVARD SYSTEM OF REFERENCING AND CITATION OF
INTERNET SOURCES
The Faculty of Business uses the Harvard system of referencing. This system makes use of short references
within the body of the text. It is supplemented by a detailed list of references at the end of the text, which
provides all the information necessary to find the source material. In-text references include the author and year
of publication, and where necessary the page number(s).
It is necessary for students to reference all sources used in their written work, including file transfer protocol
sites, worldwide web sites, telnet sites, synchronous communications (MOOs, MUDs, IRC, etc.) GOPHER
sites, email, Listserv and Newsgroup citations.
It is the responsibility of students to ensure that they are familiar with the Harvard system of referencing and
with the accepted Faculty of Business practice for referencing electronic material and that they use it accurately
in all written work submitted. Students should consult the following University Library website for a detailed
explanation of the Harvard system of referencing and examples of how to reference electronic material
https://uow.libguides.com/refcite/uowharvard
ACADEMIC COMPLAINTS
In accordance with the Coursework Student Academic Complaints Policy, a student may request an explanation
of a mark for an assessment task or a final grade for a subject consistent with the student’s right to appropriate
and useful feedback on their performance in an assessment task. Refer to the Coursework Student Academic
Complaints Policy for further information – http://www.uow.edu.au/about/policy/UOW058653.html
SECTION C: GENERAL ADVICE TO STUDENTS –
