Assessment and results

At JCU, you will need to complete assessment items for all or part of your study.  This website will guide you through the changes and link you to the support pages to find out information about how your assessment (including formal examinations) will be presented to you, and how to apply for special consideration for any short-term and/or unforeseen circumstances that substantially affect your ability to complete an assessment item.

Throughout the study period, your subjects may require you to complete a variety of assessment pieces. Details and due dates will be included in your Subject Outline, available on LearnJCU. If you have any questions regarding your assessment, it is recommended you contact your Subject Coordinator, Lecturer, or Tutor for clarification.
