Coursework uploads and zero-tolerance deadlines
Stoneham, Ray (2009) Coursework uploads and zero-tolerance deadlines. Italics, 8 (1). pp. 17-20. ISSN 1473-7507Full text not available from this repository.
Clear assessment deadlines and severe penalties for late submission of coursework are a feature of a number of UK universities. This presents a severe challenge for any online upload system. Evidence from a range of different implementations at the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Greenwich over the past few years is examined to assess the impact of a zero-tolerance deadline policy on the way students work and the problems that arise.
Suggestions are made on how to minimise any possible negative impact of a zero-tolerance deadline policy on the administration of the system and on staff and students.
