Assessment Goof-Ups to Avoid

A guide for academic staff in the School of Computer Science & Engineering, UNSW. [Note: Based on UNSW Assessment Rules approved in 2002. These are under revision in 2008, and so some of the items below may change. Note written August 2008.] [Note added September 2009: the Academic Board approved a new assessment policy in November 2008. New assessment procedures based on the new policy were, I understand, to be developed by appropriate people in the Chancellery. I have not been able to find assessment procedures on the UNSW website lately, so I am unable to update this page. This page should thus be viewed as obsolete, but the principles embodied herein should generally still be valid.]
