General Assessment Requirement
Incomprehensible submissions - Assessments provide the opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge and skills to achieve the required standard. To do this, assessment responses need to be both clear and easy to understand. If not, SISTC cannot determine that students have demonstrated their knowledge and skills. Assessments will, therefore, be marked accordingly, including the potential for 0 (zero) marks where relevant.
