Policy (12)

CPEE policies describe in clear language what must be done. CPEE policies are broadly structured into two types, namely academic and operational. Academic policies are inclusive of academic program, teaching and learning and research/scholarship areas and related functions of CPEE. Operational policies are inclusive of all administrative and management functions of CPEE.

CPEE procedures and processes describe how things outlined in policies must be done. CPEE procedures and processes support CPEE policies and are directions or instructions that describe in fuller detail how particular actions should be carried out. They invariably include flowcharts that provide clear direction about sequence

The CPEE grading system consists of three parts. The first set is the final grades awarded to a student as a result of study undertaken during a semester. CPEE uses a Criterion-Referenced System for awarding such grades where students are evaluated against an absolute scale. The second set is interim grades which indicate where a student is undertaking further assessment prior to being awarded a final grade in a Unit. The third set relates to grades awarded for study undertaken external to CPEE or for recognition of prior learning.


This Policy establishes the requirements for Award eligibility and conferral. Award programs may be presented at graduation ceremonies. Ceremonies will be an optional event. Non-award programs are not to be conferred at graduation ceremonies.

This guideline for students in CPEE programs adds further clarity to the definition of plagiarism, the consequences of committing plagiarism and examples of how to avoid committing plagiarism including collusion. The definition of plagiarism provided by Collins Dictionary (n.d.) is, “Plagiarism is the practice of using or copying someone else's idea or work and pretending that you thought of it or created it”

Surveys typically involve human research and ethical approval is required for all research undertaken by CPEE students that involves any human research. Human research is defined here as research conducted with or about people, their data, and/or their tissue. People can be involved in research by taking part in surveys or interviews, or focus groups.

This request form is to be completed prior to the start date of each semester in the event that you wish to purchase a printed version of the unit/s study notes to complement the primary electronic version.

Ethical approval is required for all human research. Human research is defined here as research conducted with or about people, their data, and/or their tissue. People can be involved in research by taking part in surveys or interviews, or focus groups. If the CPEE Work Based Project or Industry Research involves human research, a student must apply for ethics approval, and must not begin any research activity until approval is received.

This form is to be used by CPEE and CPEE joint program who wish to apply for an intermission of studies.

This form is to be used by current CPEE and CPEE joint program students for the submission of an assignment after the due date.

This Guideline complements the CPEE Student Code of Conduct and the CPEE Student Misconduct Management Procedure and must be read in conjunction with them. The CPEE adopts a preventative approach to plagiarism by ensuring that all students and Unit Chairs are aware of the need to avoid plagiarism and the grave consequences of deliberate plagiarism.

The purpose of procedure is to ensure that students who are enrolled in CPEE programs meet the requirements for satisfactory progression towards graduation.

This Procedures outlined in this document ensure that CPEE recognises and provides flexible pathways for entry to its Units and Programs. The Procedure also ensures that students who are admitted possess the potential to succeed in their studies. Entry will be granted at the appropriate level with the opportunity for students to progress to the next academic level. The default entry level shall be at the Single Unit level.

This form is to be used by CPEE students who have completed their final unit of study or are at the beginning of their final semester of study who wish to inform CPEE of their intent to graduate with an Award.

CPEE grants Awards on the basis of merit to students who have satisfied all requirements of the Award in which they are enrolled. After CPEE Council confers and grants awards, testamurs and academic transcripts will be posted to students after to the Graduation Ceremony, if they do not wish to attend the ceremony.

These Guidelines have been prepared to ensure a high quality and consistency of the structure and format of project reports submitted for partial fulfillment of CPEE630 and KNE520. The components, assessment tasks and structure of both Units have been detailed elsewhere in the Unit Study Guides. The following Guidelines are a concise summary of the required structure of the Final Research Report.

Assessment enables students to demonstrate their achievement of forms of learning described in the learning outcomes. It should contribute to the development of graduate attributes and professional standards and judge student performance against explicit and relevant criteria. The following 2 types of assessment are used to determine students’ achievement of learning outcomes.

  1. Formative assessment that provides feedback to the student during their learning experience;
  2. Summative assessment that focusses on the outcomes of student learning and involves the evaluation of the final outcomes of the learning experience.

The following principles focus on the key role assessment plays in student learning at CPEE.

This CPEE process provides details on the submitting of assessment items after the due date and the grading of those late item. The process has been developed while recognising that the period specified for Unit Chairs to grade assessment tasks is 10 working days. The process includes:

  • The maximum post-submission date period for submittal.
  • A sliding penalty system for late submission up to the maximum period.
  • Student applications for an extension without penalty up to the maximum period.
  • Delegation to the CPEE Higher Education Officer (HEO) for decisions on granting extensions and waiving of penalties.
