SELT Survey Results

Korean 3 emphasises practical language skills to further develop students' abilities to communicate in Korean in a wide range of daily situations. Competency in everyday spoken language is stressed, with lessons on formal and informal interaction with peers, and developing a vocabulary to navigate university life. Students will be able to learn grammatical points and constructions that allow them to conduct appropriate forms of written and oral communication in frequently occurring situations: family life, communicating with teachers, telephone conversations, and navigating peer group communication. Studying in this course will also allow students to learn about the important role that cultural events like celebrations, milestones and festivals play in Korean life.

ANU 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 Requirements

The 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 Assessment

Marks 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.

Class participation and performance (15%)

Classroom participation is crucial for enhancing proficiency in a foreign language. Therefore, students are strongly encouraged to attend all sessions and make the best opportunity to practice Korean. You are expected to be prepared to participate in every lecture and tutorial session and to communicate in Korean with peers and the instructor as much as possible. You won't be assessed based on the level of language proficiency, so don't be afraid of making mistakes! Class participation in lectures (5%) and tutorial sessions (10%) will be assessed based upon your active involvement and engagement in lectures and tutorial activities (e.g., asking questions, responding to questions, cooperation with peers, speaking exercises and punctuality)

Academic Integrity

Academic 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 Submission

Online submission must meet the following requirements:

  1. All written assignments and hand-written or typed exam must be double-spaced in order to provide enough room for any correction or feedback needed. Please write or type in every other line.
  2. Convert your documents to a correct file format before submitting them to Wattle. 
  3. Typed assignments must be submitted in a MS Word file (.docx).
  4. Hand-written essays must be submitted in a PDF file (NO .png, .jpg, or etc.).
  5. Audio files can be submitted to Wattle by clicking the microphone icon in the submission section (recommended). You may attach a sound file if you run into technical issues.
  6. A video file can be submitted to Wattle by using a file attachment (MAX: 2G). You can also upload your file to an online platform (YouTube, Google Doc, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.) and submit the URL link if the file size is too big to upload to Wattle.
  • Note: 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.

Hardcopy Submission

For 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.

Full credit will be granted only for assignments turned in on time. Late submission of assessment tasks without an extension are penalised at the rate of 5% of the possible marks available per working day: e.e., 1 day late 5% deduction, 2 days late 10% deduction, etc. Late submission of assessment tasks is not accepted after 10 working days after the due date, or after the date specified in the course outline for the return of the assessment item. In order to avoid a penalty, students are encouraged to submit their assignments prior to the deadlines. 

Referencing Requirements

Privacy Notice

The ANU has made a number of third party, online, databases available for students to use. Use of each online database is conditional on student end users first agreeing to the database licensor’s terms of service and/or privacy policy. Students should read these carefully. In some cases student end users will be required to register an account with the database licensor and submit personal information, including their: first name; last name; ANU email address; and other information. In cases where student end users are asked to submit ‘content’ to a database, such as an assignment or short answers, the database licensor may only use the student’s ‘content’ in accordance with the terms of service — including any (copyright) licence the student grants to the database licensor. Any personal information or content a student submits may be stored by the licensor, potentially offshore, and will be used to process the database service in accordance with the licensors terms of service and/or privacy policy. If any student chooses not to agree to the database licensor’s terms of service or privacy policy, the student will not be able to access and use the database. In these circumstances students should contact their lecturer to enquire about alternative arrangements that are available.

Distribution of grades policy

Academic 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. Since first semester 1994, ANU uses a grading scale for all courses. This grading scale is used by all academic areas of the University.
