Supplementary Assessment Report

The Supplementary Assessment Policy was approved on 26 February 2016 and therefore applies to any students awarded NF grades from Professional Term 3, 2016 (201615).

The Operations team have removed access to the now obsolete report in Banner - SZRSUPA and have provided staff with access to the new report - SZRSUPA2 to coincide with this change to the eligibility criteria. Please see the new Supplementary Assessment Guidelines and Information for Students and Staff.

Student Systems run the SZRSUPA2 report daily and convert all ineligible NF grades to Fail (NN). School and faculty staff are directed to run the report after mid-day everyday so that the accurate listing of only the eligible students are appearing on the report.
