All assessments are designed to gauge the extent to which the desired Learning Outcomes of each particular programme have been achieved by the Learner. Learning Outcomes for the programme will be made clear to you early on, and assignment guidance and feedback will make explicit reference to them.
-Unsatisfactory (Fail type 1)
-Clear fail (Fail type 2)
Students whose submitted assignments do not meet the passing requirements (receiving Fail type 1 or Fail type 2) will have the opportunity to re-submit an assignment once. Results of re-submitted assignments will be limited to a final award of Pass (i.e., will not be awarded a Merit or Distinction). Students will have two weeks to re-submit their assignments from the point of results being published.
The right to re-submit an assignment will only apply where a first attempt meeting the minimum length requirements has been submitted within the deadline. Where there are two or more weighted assignments, all components must be submitted and receive at least a Pass grade in order to pass the course overall. In other words, strong performance in one assessed component will not compensate for other components which fail or are not submitted. Certificates are issued via email at the latest within six weeks of assessment completion.
The UCD Professional Academy uses Turnitin for the purposes of assignment submission, which automatically flags and assigns a percentage to content which is similar to internet sources and assignments already submitted through its database or available online. Any sources or content which are not your own work should be clearly cited. Work containing unoriginal content which is not clearly acknowledged will fail if, in the judgment of the assessor, the amount of original work is insufficient to demonstrate achievement of the Learning Outcomes. Please note that all assignment work done as part of UCD Professional Academy courses needs to be original and specific to the particular course of study undertaken; assignments done previously for other courses (either at the PA or other institutions) cannot be re-submitted, even if they are the students' own work.
If unforeseen personal circumstances (such as illness, bereavement etc.) make it difficult for you to complete assignments, please fill in the Extenuating Circumstances Application form and attach any relevant supporting documentation. Depending on the circumstances determination will be reached and communicated to you. When citing extenuating circumstances, you should provide relevant documentation at the point of submitting a request, as applications cannot be updated subsequently. Please note that, since only unforeseen circumstances will be taken into account, pressure of work is not accepted as an extenuating circumstance.
UCD Professional Academy is committed to providing an excellent trainingexperience for all students, and considers a robust and consistent approach toassessment to be an integral part of that commitment. However, the ProfessionalAcademy also recognises that, from time to time, situations may arise where a student considers they have grounds to appeal decisions related to assessment of their academic work. Students wishing to appeal assessment decisions must do so within one week from receiving notification of their grade by filling in the Grade Appeals form. Please refer to the Professional Academy’s procedure for submitting appeals (the procedure is detailed on the second page of the form). Students are asked not to direct queries regarding grades to individual lecturers. Once the appeal has been considered, a determination will be reached by the Academic team and the outcome communicated to you.
