There are different forms of assessment used at UNE. The most common are online tests, quizzes and submission of files.
Remember to take into account time zone differences to avoid penalties for late submission. You can check the current Armidale local time, it appears in the footer of all Moodle pages.
Quizzes and online tests
Quizzes can be set up in different ways for different purposes. They may be an assessable component of a unit or may be used for you to test your own knowledge.
Assessable quizzes are usually set so that they are only accessible for a certain period. Due to the various ways a quiz can be set up it is important to read the information provided with each quiz.
This is a test quiz you can go through if you to see how a Moodle quiz works.
Creating and Submitting Audio and Video assessment tasks
Always look for specific instructions in your unit if you have an assignment which requires submission in audio or video format. General instructions are included below for using both MyMedia and creating and submitting audio/ video assignments using a mobile device (these instructions include information on compressing files and using YouTube).
Checking assessments for originality
UNE uses a software application to determine the originality of assessable work submitted by its students. The software used is Turnitin and it is part of the assignment submission process.
Turnitin checks the originality of your work by comparing text from your assignment against many billions of web pages, student papers and leading library databases and publications. Turnitin produces a report that will highlight any similarities detected.
Many units have a supervised exam. The UNE Course handbook has information about assessment items, including if it has an exam.
Most of UNE's exams are held as online supervised exams, using the services of ProctorU, where you can complete the exam on your own computer and in your own space.
