PoliciesANU has educational policies, procedures and guidelines, which are designed to ensure that staff and students are aware of the University’s academic standards, and implement them. Students are expected to have read the Academic Misconduct Rule before the commencement of their course. Other key policies and guidelines include:
Assessment RequirementsThe ANU is using 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. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website Students may choose not to submit assessment items through Turnitin. In this instance you will be required to submit, alongside the assessment item itself, hard copies of all references included in the assessment item.
Moderation of AssessmentMarks that are allocated during Semester are to be considered provisional until formalised by the College examiners meeting at the end of each Semester. If appropriate, some moderation of marks might be applied prior to final results being released.
Regular attendance is essential to keep up with the course schedule, and students are expected to attend all classes. Your participation in class activities is an important part of learning. However, attendance and participation won’t be an assessment criterion. Attendance will not be recorded and will not be reflected in assessment.
See "Final exam" above, for details.Further details will be provided in Week 12.
Assessment Task 1
Learning Outcomes: 1,3
Weekly online quizzes (23%)
There will be online weekly quizzes (23%), 11 quizzes throughout the semester. The best 10 quiz scores will be counted towards the assessment. The results and feedback will be available immediately after the quizzes are closed. No late submission will be accepted unless you have a legitimate reason which prevents you from attending the course for a significant duration (two weeks or longer). You are required to submit an official document (e.g. medical certificate) for this. Although each quiz has a set of target Kanji, expression, grammar, and so on, those items which were studied in previous weeks and Japanese 1: Written will also be tested in the weekly quizzes.
Assessment Task 2
Learning Outcomes: 1,2,3
Weekly tests (20%)
Each in-class weekly Kanji test will be given in the Friday tutorial. There will be 11 tests throughout the semester (20%), each of which covers what you will have studied in the previous weeks. The best 10 test scores will be counted towards assessment. They will be returned a week after the tests were taken. Learning Kanji requires continuous effort. Although each weekly test has a set of target Kanji, those Kanji which were studied in previous weeks and Japanese 1: Written will also be tested in the weekly tests. No make-up tests will be arranged unless you have a legitimate reason which prevents you from attending the course for a significant duration (two weeks or longer). You are required to submit an official document (e.g. medical certificate) for this. Weekly Kanji tests will be held in Friday tutorials. Kanji and Kana characters will be strictly marked, i.e. the size, balance, neatness, proper shape and legibility will be carefully assessed.
Assessment Task 3
Learning Outcomes: 1,2,3,4
Assignments (×3) (27%)
Assignment 1 (7%); Assignment 2 (10%); Assignment 3 (10%)
There will be three assignments to be completed this semester. The Assignments will include sentence making, translation, reading comprehension, a composition and so on.

Your assignment needs to be stapled together, and hand-submitted. Electronic submissions won’t be accepted. The assignments will be returned two weeks after the due date. (Assessment rubrics is available in the course Wattle site.)
Assessment Task 4
Learning Outcomes: 1,2,3,4
Final exam (30%)
The final examination will be held during the university examination period. The exam is a hurdle assessment. If you fail the exam your final course result will default to the mark achieved in the exam.
Academic IntegrityAcademic integrity is a core part of our culture as a community of scholars. At its heart, academic integrity is about behaving ethically. This means that all members of the community commit to honest and responsible scholarly practice and to upholding these values with respect and fairness. The Australian National University commits to embedding the values of academic integrity in our teaching and learning. We ensure that all members of our community understand how to engage in academic work in ways that are consistent with, and actively support academic integrity. The ANU expects staff and students to uphold high standards of academic integrity and act ethically and honestly, to ensure the quality and value of the qualification that you will graduate with. The University has policies and procedures in place to promote academic integrity and manage academic misconduct. Visit the following Academic honesty & plagiarism website for more information about academic integrity and what the ANU considers academic misconduct. The ANU offers a number of services to assist students with their assignments, examinations, and other learning activities. The Academic Skills and Learning Centre offers a number of workshops and seminars that you may find useful for your studies.
Online SubmissionThe 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.
Hardcopy SubmissionFor some forms of assessment (hand written assignments, art works, laboratory notes, etc.) hard copy submission is appropriate when approved by the Associate Dean (Education). Hard copy submissions must utilise the Assignment Cover Sheet. Please keep a copy of tasks completed for your records.
Late submission of assessment tasks without an extension are penalised at the rate of 5% of the possible marks available per working day or part thereof. Late submission of assessment tasks is not accepted after 10 working days after the due date, or on or after the date specified in the course outline for the return of the assessment item. Late submission is not accepted for take-home examinations.
Referencing RequirementsAccepted academic practice for referencing sources that you use in presentations can be found via the links on the Wattle site, under the file named “ANU and College Policies, Program Information, Student Support Services and Assessment”. Alternatively, you can seek help through the Students Learning Development website.
Refer to above assessment descriptions, for details.
Extensions and PenaltiesExtensions and late submission of assessment pieces are covered by the Student Assessment (Coursework) Policy and Procedure The Course Convener may grant extensions for assessment pieces that are not examinations or take-home examinations. If you need an extension, you must request an extension in writing on or before the due date. If you have documented and appropriate medical evidence that demonstrates you were not able to request an extension on or before the due date, you may be able to request it after the due date.
Resubmission of Assignments
Re-submission is in principle not allowed for any assessment items in this course, unless otherwise permitted by the course convenor.
Distribution of grades policyAcademic Quality Assurance Committee monitors the performance of students, including attrition, further study and employment rates and grade distribution, and College reports on quality assurance processes for assessment activities, including alignment with national and international disciplinary and interdisciplinary standards, as well as qualification type learning outcomes.
