On satisfying the requirement for this course, students will have the knowledge and skills necessary to speak, read and write the language at the level appropriate for the course.

Indicative Assessment

Short fortnightly reports (25%), tutorial performance (20%), final essay (40%) plus annotated bibliography (15%). Graduate students attend joint classes with undergraduates but may expect more rigorous assessment and additional assignment work, tailored to the graduate students’ interests. Graduate students may expect a final assignment rather than an exam.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
