Assessment Tasks
Format
All reports must be presented on a standard A4 page, in a 12-point font such as Times New Roman, Tahoma, Courier or Palatino. Sensible margins, e.g., 2.54cm should be used. Wherever possible, you should use appropriate graphs, tables, diagrams and figures to augment the text.
A cover page of your own design is to be included with each submission, containing the RMIT logo and School of Engineering, plus:
• the course/unit code (Aero2383).
• the assessment due date.
• the assessment element (e.g., Individual Assignment).
• the title of the assessment
(e.g. “The project management of xyz aircraft/airport”).
• your full name and student ID.
• your course coordinator’s name.
• your lecturer’s name (if different from the course coordinator).
Include a table of contents.
Whenever you include a graph/diagram/figure, you must include a Figure number and Caption centered beneath the item. Use in-text cross referencing to link the reference to the figure to the actual figure.
Whenever you include a table, you must include a Table number and Caption centered above the item. Use in-text cross referencing to link the reference to the table to the actual table.
The footer of each page of your report must display a page number in the format “Page x of xx”, where x refers to the actual page number and xx refers to the total number of pages in the document.
The header of each page must display your name, your student number, the title of the assignment, and the date.

Format….Cont.
Immediately following the conclusion, you must include a word count statement in the format:
Word Count = xxxx words. (where xxxx is the total number of words in your assignment).
The total word count should not include references, titles, table of contents, footers, headers, or any footnotes.
All electronic submissions should be in portable document format, i.e., pdf. Ensure when you save your work as a pdf that it does not disrupt the table of contents, headers, footers, footnotes or the page numbers.
The following naming convention must be used for your file:
Familyname_Firstname_studentnumber_Aero2833_Ind_Assignment.pdf
e.g. Willis_Bruce_s1234567_Aero2833_Ind_Assignment.pdf
Use the spell-checking feature, and grammar checking feature, available in MS Word BEFORE submitting your work.
IMPORTANT NOTE: There is an MS Word template conforming to these requirements available for your use. You are strongly advised to use it!
Presentation of written work
A high standard of presentation is expected so poorly presented work may be refused.
The School of Engineering only accepts written assessments electronically. For this course, you will find the relevant submission link on the course Blackboard in the “Course Assessment” section. A copy of all submitted work should always be kept for safety.
All electronic submissions should be in portable document format, i.e., pdf. Ensure when you save your work as a pdf that it does not disrupt the contents listing or the page numbers.

Late submission
Extensions are not normally granted. However, in exceptional circumstances and cases of genuine hardship (which does not include inconvenience, poor planning or pressure of work) limited extensions may be granted. Application should be made in writing to your session leader or the course coordinator but only before the due date for submissions. Where appropriate, a medical certificate should be provided.
Such applications will be granted or declined in writing.
Late submissions will automatically be penalized 10 per cent of the possible marks per day cumulative at that rate (i.e., 2 days after submission is due, the applicable penalty is 20%, limiting the maximum possible mark to 80%, and so on). Assignments will not be assessed if submitted more than five days after the submission due date.
Assessment Review
If you require an assessment review you should apply, in writing, to the Head of School within a month of the official notification of the result. The form of the report for this course will be a written report on your performance on each segment of the assessment program.
Appeals
Students are advised that they have the right to appeal the result of any assessment. If you are dissatisfied with any assessment, you must first discuss the matter with your session leader. If the matter is not satisfactorily resolved, then you must discuss the situation with the Program Manager. If you do not follow this procedure, then your appeal is not in accord with the RMIT regulations. Details of the formal appeal procedures, which must follow both of these steps, must be in accordance with RMIT University policy.
In cases where the approach has progressed above the first level appeals process (that is, the consultation stage) then all future communication must be directed to that particular level.
Students are also advised that if a mark is appealed against, it is the second examiner’s mark which is officially recorded, even if lower than the original assessment.
Where assessment is progressive, appeals against earlier pieces of work will not alter submission deadlines for later assessment materials.
