Assessment information

Student viewing of examination scripts

This information has been provided to outline the process for students to view final examination scripts. Any comments on this process should be referred to the Deputy Head of School (Teaching and Learning) in the School of ITEE.

Process for reviewing exam scripts

Due to the provision of online assessment for final examinations, there will no longer be formally scheduled exam script viewing sessions. Course coordinators will be releasing feedback for students via Blackboard on their exam script.

Should you require additional, more specific feedback, please email the course coordinator directly.

Note: If, in due course, you decide to seek a re-mark please see guidelines and policies for students on my.UQ re: querying a result.

How to reference

Important detail on how to correctly reference the work of others is available from the UQ Library website. This site provides information about referencing from books, theses, journal articles, multi-media materials, standards, patents and electronic sources.

Training resources in plagiarism and referencing are also available from the UQ Library.

Some of the work done in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering will involve reference to non-traditional sources, such as the web, CD-Rom and computer files. Just because the original work is not printed, does not mean it is not subject to proper referencing by students in their assessment.

Similarly, not all work submitted is text-based. Much of it is computer code, hardware devices or schematic or built models. The work you do must, where applicable, be accompanied by a reference list. For a design this could be done in an addendum. References for code could be added as comments. In general we expect that you would produce your own code, devices and drawings but in some circumstances, you may be allowed to copy code or designs.

For example, if you are required to produce some code and you are unsure what to do, it is a good idea to begin by doing some research on the internet to find similar solutions. Let’s suppose you find something close to what you are looking for – don’t just copy the code from the website as this could constitute plagiarism (if is not referenced) or as work with no academic merit. Instead, read the code on the web and use this as the basis to build your own interpretation, it is likely to differ significantly from the code you found on the web, and therefore has academic merit. To avoid any plagiarism accusation, reference the website you used for your inspiration (i.e. 'This code is inspired by an example found at ......')

Don’t leave it to the end - create your list of references as you do your work. Don’t wait until you have finished the assignment. It is not sufficient just to have a list of references at the end – the references must be made or correctly cited in the body of your work.
