Course Assessment

3.1

Overview of Assessment
There are five assessment items for this course. The weightings for each of them are
shown in Table 2. For Assignments 1 and 2, you are required to complete two
professionally written reports in relation to the maintenance and rehabilitation issues. The
professionally written report is to be a scholarly piece of work with the associated
requirements for good and clear writing that is appropriately referenced and the original
work of the author. There are penalties if these basic standards are not met.

For Assignment 3-5, you are required to complete three computer-based multiple-choice
quizzes run during the semester on content of lectures.

3.2.2 Assignment brief


Introduction
This written assessment item places you in the role of a building maintenance
specialist in a Facilities Management firm. In this position you have been asked to
propose a maintenance plan for the Architecture Building (including the Building
Science) at the University of Newcastle. This building encompasses multiple
functional spaces including offices, classrooms, conference room, function rooms,
pantry, etc. The plans and photographs of the building are uploaded to Blackboard
(in the course outline section) and should require no further explanation. Noted: the
Architecture Design Studio (ADS) building and the Architecture and Built
Environment Workshop (ABEW) are not included in this assignment.

Task
You have been asked by your manager to do the following in terms of the proposal:

Identify 10-15 possible defects that need to be addressed in the short run and
provide technical solutions to repair the defects. You also need to discuss the
cost of alternative approaches to rectifying the defects. A template for
presenting the defect identification and solutions suggestion with estimated
cost can be downloaded from Blackboard.

Based on the functions and elements of the building, identify the maintenance
generators. The maintenance generator is referred to the factors which act
upon the building elements, such as exposure condition and the building's use,
etc.

Develop the preventive maintenance programme with the understanding of


building information modelling approach and then prepare the planned
preventative maintenance plans, incorporate the maintenance generators and
the needs of overall building in short and long terms.

ARBE2306 Maintenance Services and Rehabilitation - Course Outline 2014

You will be required to provide a solution/s to the problem and write a professional
report that gives background, justification and recommendations to your solution/s.
You are required to make assumptions or educated guesses on any
information/material that you believe to be missing. If this is the case you are to
explain/justify these assumptions.

Some handy points


This course places a high value on the development of students academic and
professional writing including such qualities as structuring sections and paragraphs
to bring out a sound professional discussion, control of the conciseness and
relevance of the discussion, ability to summarise and critique the arguments of
pertinent writers etc. and to use appropriate citation and referencing techniques.
Given these expectations, please note that the report should achieve the objectives
within 3000 words 10% excluding drawings, tables, references and appendices.

3.2.5 Submission requirements


a) Submission cover sheet

All assignments are to be accompanied by the relevant individual or group


assignment

cover

sheet.

These

can

be

found

at

http://www.newcastle.edu.au/current-students/study-essentials/forms-andguides.

b) Submission referencing

All sources must be referenced appropriately, and all figures and tables
must be numbered, titled and integrated into the body of the report. Care
must be taken in developing good academic and scholarly practice in
citations. Use the Harvard or APA system or similar. Details can be found
at http://libguides.newcastle.edu.au/referencing

Use direct quotation very sparingly (as a guide, direct quotes should
constitute no more than 10% of your whole report). In preference to quoting
a lot, present the authors argument in your own words. When it is
important to quote ensure that you are doing so to draw attention to the key
features of the authors arguments. Refer to the section on The Universitys
rules and regulations on plagiarism in this Course Outline.

c) Submission format

Use a report format with a numerical hierarchy (or otherwise) of headings


and sub-headings as shown in this document. Use an A4 type written PDF
(.pdf) format with a signed copy of the Assessment Cover Sheet as the
front cover of your assignment. It is advisable that you cut and paste your
written assignment into the Assessment Cover Sheet file, not the other way
and rename the file as Surname First name_2306_Ass1.pdf e.g. Smith
John_2306_Ass1.pdf.

The file size can be an issue when submitting through Turnitin. You are
advised to review the size of your file ensuring it will not take too long of
upload time. If you are including photographs and other digital graphic
media it is recommended that you adopt processes (Photoshop,
PowerPoint etc.) to reduce it to 72dpi format. It is important to note that
electronic submissions will be marked in their electronic form for this
course. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that any files
submitted in Adobe format are readable. THERE WILL BE NO
HARDCOPY SUBMISSIONS!

Please note that Turnitin do not accept scanned submissions, all


drawings/sketches may be scanned as PDF/JPEG format and import them
into the appropriate sections of your report and submit your whole report
through Turnitin as a PDF file.

Introduction
This written assessment item places you in the role of an employee for a
multidisciplinary consultancy firm specialising in heritage and rehabilitation work. In

3.4.2 Assignment brief


For ARBE2306 there will be THREE compulsory online multiple choice quizzes
that have been developed to provide formative assessment. Completing the quiz
will provide you with an indication of your progress in the course, where your
strengths and weaknesses are, allowing you to address those weak areas in
subsequent coursework. They will be open book quizzes.

16

ARBE2306 Maintenance Services and Rehabilitation Course Outline 2014

These three online quizzes are compulsory and contribute to your final mark for the
course. They can be completed in your own time over a four-day period run during
the semester. You are advised to avail yourself of this opportunity, as there will be
no other FORMAL opportunity to have formative feedback on your progress.

The quizzes will be completed through Blackboard with the results available
immediately upon completion within the Blackboard system as right/wrong answer.
More details about the quiz arrangements will be provided from Blackboard.

Once the critique panel has begun assessment, no further submissions will be accepted
and the work will not be assessed.

Circumstance procedure, applications must be received by 11.00pm of the due date and

allowable adverse circumstances in accordance with the Adverse Circumstances
Affecting Assessment Items Procedure.

submit applications via the Online Adverse Circumstances Application, along with
