Monash is committed to excellence in education and regularly seeks feedback from students, employers and staff. One of the key formal ways students have to provide feedback is through SETU, Student Evaluation of Teacher and Unit. The University's student evaluation policy requires that every unit is evaluated each year. Students are strongly encouraged to complete the surveys. The feedback is anonymous and provides the Faculty with evidence of aspects that students are satisfied and areas for improvement.
For more information on Monash's educational strategy, and on student evaluations, see:

To pass a unit which includes an examination as part of the assessment a student must obtain:
If a student does not achieve 40% or more in the unit examination or the unit non-examination total assessment, and the total mark for the unit is greater than 50% then a mark of no greater than 49-N will be recorded for the unit
You must get permission from your tutor for the topic you choose to do. The assessment will be based on both contents and presentation. A References page must be included after the Content pages for the reference materials and websites consulted. It is advised that you follow your tutor's instructions to do this assignment. The marking criteria and specific tasks to be carried out will be made available during tutorials.
The assessment will be based on how you demonstrate your understanding of multilingual
Web authoring with an appropriate choice of Web page design approach and proper
applications of tools and techniques.
Your multilingual web page should demonstrate
(a) proper use of character images for presenting multilingual information and
(b) well-formatted and consistent page layout.
One component page of your personal web page must include the information about your study at Monash (e.g. your Master course or a specific unit).
The marking criteria will be made available during tutorials.
It is a University requirement (http://www.policy.monash.edu/policy-bank/academic/education/conduct/plagiarism-procedures.html) for students to submit an assignment coversheet for each assessment item. Faculty Assignment coversheets can be found at http://www.infotech.monash.edu.au/resources/student/forms/. Please check with your Lecturer on the submission method for your assignment coversheet (e.g. attach a file to the online assignment submission, hand-in a hard copy, or use an online quiz).
You must negotiate any extensions formally with your campus unit leader via the in-semester special consideration process: http://www.infotech.monash.edu.au/resources/student/equity/special-consideration.html.
