Student viewing of examination scripts

This information has been provided to outline the process for students to view final examination scripts. Any comments on this process should be referred to the Director of Teaching and Learning in the School of EECS.

Process for reviewing exam scripts

The School of EECS will be holding an exam script viewing session for students who sat an on-campus end-of-semester exam in Semester 2, 2023.

Students whose exams were marked via Gradescope will need to contact their course coordinators regarding viewing their exams.

Details of the exam script viewing sessions are as follows:

  • Date: Wednesday 21st of February, 2024 
  • Time: 1pm - 3pm (AEST)
  • Location: 78-217
  • Registration closes: Wednesday 14th of February 2024

All students attending the School's script viewing sessions must adhere to the following conditions:

  • Students must present a valid student ID card to gain entry into the session.
  • You may arrive at any time from 1pm up until the last admission into the room at 2:45pm.
  • Students cannot take any materials into the room (i.e. no phones, pens, paper, etc. Bags to be left at the front of the room).
  • Multiple choice papers and answers are not available via this review process.
  • Students may not discuss the contents of their exam with one another during the session, nor with the person supervising the session.
  • During the session the student may complete a request for feedback form if they wish to seek clarification of the marking of a particular question/s or if they believe a calculation error has been made.
  • Only scripts that you have registered to view will be available at the session.
  • Scripts cannot be posted/scanned to students and can only be viewed under supervision at the session.

Following the viewing session, the requests for feedback and exam scripts will be provided back to the Course Coordinator, who will then communicate the feedback to the student directly.

Note: If, in due course, you decide to seek a re-mark please see guidelines and policies for students on my.UQ re: querying a result.

How to reference

Important detail on how to correctly reference the work of others is available from the UQ Library website. This site provides information about referencing from books, theses, journal articles, multi-media materials, standards, patents and electronic sources.

Training resources in plagiarism and referencing are also available from the UQ Library.

Some of the work done in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science will involve reference to non-traditional sources, such as the web, CD-Rom and computer files. Just because the original work is not printed, does not mean it is not subject to proper referencing by students in their assessment.

Similarly, not all work submitted is text-based. Much of it is computer code, hardware devices or schematic or built models. The work you do must, where applicable, be accompanied by a reference list. For a design this could be done in an addendum. References for code could be added as comments. In general we expect that you would produce your own code, devices and drawings but in some circumstances, you may be allowed to copy code or designs.

For example, if you are required to produce some code and you are unsure what to do, it is a good idea to begin by doing some research on the internet to find similar solutions. Let’s suppose you find something close to what you are looking for – don’t just copy the code from the website as this could constitute plagiarism (if it is not referenced), or work with no academic merit. Instead, read the code and use this as the basis to build your own interpretation. It is likely to differ significantly from the code you found on the internet, and therefore it will have academic merit. To avoid any plagiarism accusation, reference the website you used for your inspiration (i.e. 'This code is inspired by an example found at ...').

Don’t leave it to the end - create your list of references as you do your work. Don’t wait until you have finished the assignment. It is not sufficient just to have a list of references at the end – the references must be made or correctly cited in the body of your work.
