Submission of Assignments – Procedures and Practices
Students are to follow the recommended submission intervals as outlined in the course.
Students are discouraged from submitting multiple sequences or modules of work at one time. Feedback from tutor/markers throughout the course is beneficial.
If multiple modules are submitted, that work may be returned to the student unmarked and/or there may be delays in receiving the marked assignments.
Students must use language that helps to demonstrate the knowledge of subject matter in a respectful and appropriate manner. Work may be returned unmarked if it does not meet this criterion.
Students may submit the assignments via Mail, Email, or the assignments may be dropped off in person at The Distance Learning Unit, 555 Main Street, Winkler, MB.
Students have 12 months from the date of registration to complete the course. There are specific deadlines for GRADUATING students that may come prior to the course expiry date.
Students should allow up to 21 days from the date of submission to receive marked assignments.
Students attending school will have assignments returned to the school
Students not attending school will have assignments returned to the home address.
During Summer and Winter Break all assignments will be returned to the home address
Students should RETAIN ALL MARKED ASSIGNMENTS until the final, official STATEMENT OF STANDING has been issued.
Note: ALL Tutor/Markers accept mailed assignments.
Emailing of assignments/unsupervised tests for electronic marking
Students who have access to the Internet may submit assignments electronically if the course they are enrolled in permits emailed assignments. Please be advised that this option is not appropriate for some subject areasand permission to submit assignments electronically is at the discretion of the tutor/marker.
Please notify your ISO School Facilitator (person who signed your ISO registration/admission form) to receive permission to email your assignments and to determine your school's procedure for emailing assignments/unsupervised tests.
