Academic Integrity and Misconduct

Unless this is a group assessment, the work you produce must be your own, with work taken from any other source properly referenced and attributed. For the avoidance of doubt this means that it is an infringement of academic integrity and, therefore, academic misconduct to ask someone else to carry out all or some of the work for you, whether paid or unpaid, or to use the work of another student whether current or previously submitted.

For further guidance on what constitutes plagiarism, contract cheating or collusion, or any other infringement of academic integrity, please read the University’s Academic Integrity and Misconduct Policy. You will also find useful resources on the VLE: Referencing and Academic Integrity page.

N.B. The penalties for academic misconduct are severe and can include failing the assessment, failing the module and expulsion from the university.

Assessment Submission

To submit your work, please go to the Assessments tile on the module page – and submit to Turnitin. Please note that essays and text-based reports should be submitted as Word documents and not PDFs or Mac files.

Written work will be subject to anti-plagiarism detection software. Turnitin checks student work for possible textual matches against internet available resources and its own proprietary database.

N.B Work emailed directly to your tutor will not be marked.

Late submission of work

For first sits, if an item of assessment is submitted late and an extension has not been granted, the following will apply:

  • Submission within one week of the original deadline – work will be marked and returned with full feedback, and awarded a maximum bare pass grade (D-).
  • Submission more than one week from original deadline – fail grade (LG, L indicating late).

For resits there are no allowances for late submissions

Extensions

The University of Northampton’s general policy with regard to extensions is to be supportive of students who have genuine difficulties, but not against pressures of work that could have reasonably been anticipated.

For full details please refer to the Extensions Policy. Extensions are only available for first sits – they are not available for resits.

 

Mitigating Circumstances

For guidance on mitigating circumstances please go to Mitigating CircumstancesVLE area where you will find detailed guidance on the policy as well as guidance and the form for making an application.

Please note, however, that an application to defer an assessment on the grounds of mitigating circumstances should normally be made in advance of the submission deadline or examination date.

Marking Rubric

This is what you will be marked against. You need to check it regularly against your work to ensure you are on the right track.

UONL Learning Outcomes – Level 5

Work of commendable quality demonstrating a strong conceptual grasp of assessment tasks in relation to learning outcomes.

Work that is of sound quality, demonstrating a good understanding of learning outcomes which is sufficient and appropriate to the task or activity.

Work of a broadly satisfactory quality demonstrates evidence of achieving the requirements of the learning outcomes.

Work falls short of the threshold standards. Work addresses the assessment task to some extent but overall is limited in its approach and is outweighed by major deficiencies in the work.

A: Recognise and describe significant life events (SLE) that may impact on individuals and their social networks

The correct ideas of SLE have been used. Knowledge demonstrated in relation to impacts upon case study is thoughtful and is of high quality. Ideas are communicated accurately and effectively. Wider supporting material used is also applied with rigor appropriate to the subject Exceptionally clear and coherent account provided overall.

The correct ideas of SLE have been used and a strong understanding provided in relation to the impacts upon the case study. Consistent use of relevant subject based supporting material to illustrate points with good use of relevant examples.

The correct ideas of SLE have been used with a satisfactory understanding demonstrated in relation to the impacts of SLE upon the case study. A sound overview using examples to illustrate key points.

The correct ideas of SLE have been used but descriptions demonstrate a basic understanding. Some impacts of SLE have been recognised in relation to the case study however some aspects of the work may also include irrelevant/inaccurate information

The ideas of SLE have been used but are limited or inaccurate. Work does not use examples from relevant case study as outlined in the assessment brief/uses examples that are irrelevant. There are key details missing in relation to SLEs and their impact and is limited in its approach/illogical content provided. Overall falls short in relation to quality of examples that only partially illustrate points.

 

C: Analyse responses made by health and social care services (HSCS) to support individuals experiencing significant life events

An excellent explanation of the involvement and responses of HSCS in the case study, demonstrating well-considered and well-developed analysis.

The consideration of the potential and realised impacts upon individuals being supported is insightful.

Content is exceptional and consistently applied to the case study throughout with excellent examples to illustrate key points.

A clear explanation of the HSCS response in the case study has been provided, demonstrating areas of strong analysis.

Demonstration of the impacts of the HSCS involvement upon individuals is clearly articulated although may be obvious.

Examples are relevant and have been used throughout to support discussions.

A satisfactory explanation has been provided in relation to HSCS response and impacts identified in the case study. The work is relevant to the task with analysis evident. Some relevant examples have been used to illustrate points and a good understanding of the implications of HSCS provision has been identified.

A basic/descriptive explanation of the HSCS responses and impact have been provided with reference to the case study. Some evidence of analysis, however, elements of the content are irrelevant.

A limited/illogical discussion of the involvement of HSCS has been provided, which has limited application to the case study. Limited understanding of the impact of HSCS has been demonstrated. Work falls short of threshold standards with limited reference made to the case study.
