6. Supplementary Assessment

Supplementary assessment may be approved in accordance with the Academic Regulations.

6.1 Purpose of supplementary assessment

Supplementary assessment is provided to support transition into the workplace at the conclusion of any coursework program and applies to the final 80 cp of the course.
Supplementary assessment is not a re-assessment of the student's overall grade or the mark for an individual assessment item or a deferred assessment. It consists of a new item of assessment1 designed to give students the opportunity to demonstrate their achievement of the learning outcomes specified for the unit and to progress in and/or complete the requirements of their course.

6.2 Students transferring courses and cross-institutional study

Where students gain credit towards a course on the basis of prior studies, whether completed at ACU or elsewhere, results achieved in relevant prior studies will not be considered in determining a student's eligibility for a supplementary assessment.

Where a student is granted permission to undertake cross-institutional study within the final 80 cp of a course, results gained in such study will be considered in determining a student's eligibility for a supplementary assessment.

6.3 Grades allocated on the basis of supplementary assessment

6.3.1 The highest grade which can be awarded to students who successfully complete supplementary assessment requirements will be a Pass (PA) grade.

6.3.2 Students who are unsuccessful in meeting supplementary assessment requirements will be awarded a Fail (NN) grade.
