What is the grading system?

In accordance with College policy, students will be awarded one of three grades: DISTINCTION, CREDIT or RESUBMIT. In addition to a student’s successful completion of the course exercises and participation in discussion forums (where applicable) assessors are examining submitted work on the basis of:

•Written or oral analysis and argument;
•Structure and presentation of material where appropriate;
•Cohesion between sections;
•Detail used to support the overall points being made and
•Adequate comprehension of the course materials, supplementary resources and any extra reading

•A DISTINCTION grade is generally awarded when work submitted reflects high standards in these assessment criteria. The student who scores a DISTINCTION has usually gone above and beyond the standard requirements
•A CREDIT grade is generally awarded when work submitted reflects a reasonable standard in the above criteria – which is the target.
•The R (for 'RESUBMIT') grade is awarded when the standard hasn’t yet reached the target level. We’re not interested in failing anybody, so be sure to make use of the assessor’s feedback, which will be provided. This will consist of advice on where you can improve your assignment. You will then be extended opportunity for up to two resubmissions during the current period of your enrolment in a course. Please address any administrative questions regarding grades to the Registrar.
