- Policy on weighting given to multiple choice exam setting in
allocation of examination marking duties. The TC agreed to
draft a School policy on this.
- Status of BE Computer Engineering MCom degree.
- Tutor of the year award [AndrewT]
- Refinement of Plagiarism Policy following School
The School meeting approved addition of plagiarism detection
facilitation to sms.
Issues raised at the School meeting include
- providing a clear definition of plagiarism vs acceptable
cooperation at the School and course levels,
- standards of "matter-of-factness" in communicating
plagiarism rules to students,
- appeal processes for students,
- degree of discretion available to lecturers in relation to
what might otherwise appear to be "mandatory sentencing", and
- discretion in the matter of whether a student known to have
plagiarised may be employed as a casual tutor - it was for example
suggested that a student convicted once in COMP1011 who subsequently
had a superlative record and no further breaches of plagiarism
rules might be allowed to tutor, say, in their fourth year.
- Allocation for summer session courses.
- Any other business.
