General Rules and Regulations
Late Submission Penalty
The School imposes a late submission penalty for work submitted late without a valid reason e.g. a medical
certificate. Any work submitted after the deadline (which may have been extended) shall have the percentage
grade assigned to the work on face value reduced by 10% for the first day and 5% for each subsequent day late.
A weekend counts as one (1) day.
Individual members of staff shall be permitted to grant extensions for assessed work that they have set if they
are satisfied that a student has given good reasons.
Absenteeism at intermediate or final presentation will result in zero mark for that presentation.
The Board of Examiners may overrule any penalty imposed and allow the actual mark achieved to be used if the
late submission was for a good reason.
Attendance, Participation and Submission of Assessment Components
Attendance is compulsory. Any student who arrives late after the first half-hour of class will be considered as
absent. The lectures and tutorials will assist you in expanding your ideas and your assessments. A minimum of
80% attendance is required to pass the module and/or be eligible for the final examination and/or presentation.
Students will be assessed based on their performance throughout the semester. Students are expected to attend
and participate actively in class. Class participation is an important component of every module.
Students must attempt all assessment components. Failure to attempt assessment components worth 20% or
more, the student would be required to resubmit or re-sit an assessment component, even though the student
has achieved more than 50% in the overall assessment. Failure to attempt all assessment components, including
final exam and final presentation, will result in failing the module irrespective of the marks earned, even though
the student has achieved more than 50% in the overall assessment.
Plagiarism (Excerpt from Taylor’s University Student Handbook 2013, page 59)
Plagiarism, which is an attempt to present another person’s work as your own by not acknowledging the source,
is a serious case of misconduct which is deemed unacceptable by the University.
"Work" includes written materials such as books, journals and magazine articles or other papers and also
includes films and computer programs. The two most common types of plagiarism are from published materials
and other students’ works.
1. Published Materials
In general, whenever anything from someone else’s work is used, whether it is an idea, an opinion or the
results of a study or review, a standard system of referencing should be used. Examples of plagiarism may
include a sentence or two, or a table or a diagram from a book or an article used without acknowledgement.
Serious cases of plagiarism can be seen in cases where the entire paper presented by the student is copied
from another book, with an addition of only a sentence or two by the student.
While the former can be treated as a simple failure to cite references, the latter is likely to be viewed as
cheating in an examination.
Though most assignments require the need for reference to other peoples’ works, in order to avoid
plagiarism, students should keep a detailed record of the sources of ideas and findings and ensure that these
sources are clearly quoted in their assignment. Note that plagiarism also refers to materials obtained from the
Internet too.
Architecture Culture & History 1 (ARC 1313): Aug 2013 5 | P a g e
2. Other Students’ Work
Circulating relevant articles and discussing ideas before writing an assignment is a common practice.
However, with the exception of group assignments, students should write their own papers. Plagiarising the
work of other students into assignments includes using identical or very similar sentences, paragraphs or
sections. When two students submit papers that are very similar in tone and content, both are likely to be
penalised.
Student Participation
Your participation in the module is encouraged. You have the opportunity to participate in the following ways:
 Your ideas and questions are welcomed, valued and encouraged.
 Your input is sought to understand your perspectives, ideas and needs in planning subject revision.
 You have opportunities to give feedback and issues will be addressed in response to that feedback.
 Do reflect on your performance in Portfolios.
 Student evaluation on your views and experiences about the module are actively sought and used as an
integral part of improvement in teaching and continuous improvement.
Student-centered Learning (SCL)
The module uses the Student-centered Learning (SCL) approach. Utilization of SCL embodies most of the
principles known to improve learning and to encourage student’s participation. SCL requires students to be
active, responsible participants in their own learning and instructors are to facilitate the learning process. Various
teaching and learning strategies such as experiential learning, problem-based learning, site visits, group
discussions, presentations, working in group and etc. can be employed to facilitate the learning process. In SCL,
students are expected to be:
 Active in their own learning
 Self-directed to be responsible to enhance their learning abilities
 Able to cultivate skills that are useful in today’s workplace
 Active knowledge seekers
 Active players in a team
Types of Assessment and Feedback
You will be graded in the form of formative and summative assessments. Formative assessments will provide
information to guide you in the research process. This form of assessment involves participation in discussions
and feedback sessions. Summative assessment will inform you about the level of understanding and
performance capabilities achieved at the end of the module.

Assessment Components
1. Project: Precedent Study & Analysis
This project focuses on investigating historical works to enrich architectural design and ideas.
Through the study of existing buildings, students are able to communicate and expand their own
architectural vocabulary and develop design concepts. In a group of 5, students are required to
conduct precedent study analysis on specific building through drawing, model-making, on-line forum
discussion and verbal presentations. This precedent study analysis should help clarify the research
question of “why” that specific building is historically, culturally and architecturally importance; and
“how” the design concepts derived from that particular building can be developed and expanded to
be creatively and innovatively integrated into their Studio 1 design project.
2. Online Tests
Test questions will be based on the recommended text book and readings for this module and will be given
topically to extend students’ vocabulary in architecture history.
3. Final Examination
This final examination is designed to assess the ability of the students to clarify why a specific building is
historically, culturally and architecturally importance; and how the design concepts can be
developed and expanded to be creatively and innovatively integrated into contemporary architectural
design.
4. Taylor’s Graduate Capabilities Portfolio
The Taylor’s Graduate Capabilities (TGC) Portfolio is a document that collates all assessments produced in a
module and reflects a student’s acquisition of the Module Learning Outcomes and Taylor’s Graduate
Capabilities.
 For students enrolled in the 2011 Programme Structure
The TGC portfolio is an edited A3-size bound document that includes all the assessments produced in the
module. Visual diary and process of work (packaged) are to be included as part of the portfolio
submission. Students must reflect on their learning through the TGC Portfolio Form.
 For students enrolled in the 2012 Programme Structure onwards
Each student is to develop an e-Portfolio, a web-based portfolio in the form of a personal academic blog.
The e-Portfolio is developed progressively for all modules taken throughout Semesters 1 to 5, and
culminates with a final Portfolio in printed form produced in the final semester. The printed Portfolio must
encapsulate the acquisition of Programme Learning Outcomes and Taylor’s Graduate Capabilities, and
showcases the distinctiveness and identity of the student as a graduate of the programme.

Hurdle Assessment Guideline for Architectural Design Studio
Hurdle assessments are compulsory requirements within individual modules that must be met in order to achieve
satisfactory results in those modules. The hurdle assessment for final submission of Architectural Design Studio
modules is set at 40%. Students who obtain a D grade (40- 49) for final submission and overall D grade or higher
for the module, will be permitted a resubmission of assessment. Students are required to obtain a minimum C
grade in the resubmission to pass the module. Students who obtain a Fail grade (0-39) for the final submission
will fail the module, regardless of his/her overall grade for the module. Failure of the module may impede student
progression.

  • 4. Architecture Culture & History 1 (ARC 1313): Aug 2013 4 | P a g e General Rules and Regulations Late Submission Penalty The School imposes a late submission penalty for work submitted late without a valid reason e.g. a medical certificate. Any work submitted after the deadline (which may have been extended) shall have the percentage grade assigned to the work on face value reduced by 10% for the first day and 5% for each subsequent day late. A weekend counts as one (1) day. Individual members of staff shall be permitted to grant extensions for assessed work that they have set if they are satisfied that a student has given good reasons. Absenteeism at intermediate or final presentation will result in zero mark for that presentation. The Board of Examiners may overrule any penalty imposed and allow the actual mark achieved to be used if the late submission was for a good reason. Attendance, Participation and Submission of Assessment Components Attendance is compulsory. Any student who arrives late after the first half-hour of class will be considered as absent. The lectures and tutorials will assist you in expanding your ideas and your assessments. A minimum of 80% attendance is required to pass the module and/or be eligible for the final examination and/or presentation. Students will be assessed based on their performance throughout the semester. Students are expected to attend and participate actively in class. Class participation is an important component of every module. Students must attempt all assessment components. Failure to attempt assessment components worth 20% or more, the student would be required to resubmit or re-sit an assessment component, even though the student has achieved more than 50% in the overall assessment. Failure to attempt all assessment components, including final exam and final presentation, will result in failing the module irrespective of the marks earned, even though the student has achieved more than 50% in the overall assessment. Plagiarism (Excerpt from Taylor’s University Student Handbook 2013, page 59) Plagiarism, which is an attempt to present another person’s work as your own by not acknowledging the source, is a serious case of misconduct which is deemed unacceptable by the University. "Work" includes written materials such as books, journals and magazine articles or other papers and also includes films and computer programs. The two most common types of plagiarism are from published materials and other students’ works. 1. Published Materials In general, whenever anything from someone else’s work is used, whether it is an idea, an opinion or the results of a study or review, a standard system of referencing should be used. Examples of plagiarism may include a sentence or two, or a table or a diagram from a book or an article used without acknowledgement. Serious cases of plagiarism can be seen in cases where the entire paper presented by the student is copied from another book, with an addition of only a sentence or two by the student. While the former can be treated as a simple failure to cite references, the latter is likely to be viewed as cheating in an examination. Though most assignments require the need for reference to other peoples’ works, in order to avoid plagiarism, students should keep a detailed record of the sources of ideas and findings and ensure that these sources are clearly quoted in their assignment. Note that plagiarism also refers to materials obtained from the Internet too.
  • 5. Architecture Culture & History 1 (ARC 1313): Aug 2013 5 | P a g e 2. Other Students’ Work Circulating relevant articles and discussing ideas before writing an assignment is a common practice. However, with the exception of group assignments, students should write their own papers. Plagiarising the work of other students into assignments includes using identical or very similar sentences, paragraphs or sections. When two students submit papers that are very similar in tone and content, both are likely to be penalised. Student Participation Your participation in the module is encouraged. You have the opportunity to participate in the following ways:  Your ideas and questions are welcomed, valued and encouraged.  Your input is sought to understand your perspectives, ideas and needs in planning subject revision.  You have opportunities to give feedback and issues will be addressed in response to that feedback.  Do reflect on your performance in Portfolios.  Student evaluation on your views and experiences about the module are actively sought and used as an integral part of improvement in teaching and continuous improvement. Student-centered Learning (SCL) The module uses the Student-centered Learning (SCL) approach. Utilization of SCL embodies most of the principles known to improve learning and to encourage student’s participation. SCL requires students to be active, responsible participants in their own learning and instructors are to facilitate the learning process. Various teaching and learning strategies such as experiential learning, problem-based learning, site visits, group discussions, presentations, working in group and etc. can be employed to facilitate the learning process. In SCL, students are expected to be:  Active in their own learning  Self-directed to be responsible to enhance their learning abilities  Able to cultivate skills that are useful in today’s workplace  Active knowledge seekers  Active players in a team Types of Assessment and Feedback You will be graded in the form of formative and summative assessments. Formative assessments will provide information to guide you in the research process. This form of assessment involves participation in discussions and feedback sessions. Summative assessment will inform you about the level of understanding and performance capabilities achieved at the end of the module.

  • 6. Architecture Culture & History 1 (ARC 1313): Aug 2013 6 | P a g e Assessment Components 1. Project: Precedent Study & Analysis This project focuses on investigating historical works to enrich architectural design and ideas. Through the study of existing buildings, students are able to communicate and expand their own architectural vocabulary and develop design concepts. In a group of 5, students are required to conduct precedent study analysis on specific building through drawing, model-making, on-line forum discussion and verbal presentations. This precedent study analysis should help clarify the research question of “why” that specific building is historically, culturally and architecturally importance; and “how” the design concepts derived from that particular building can be developed and expanded to be creatively and innovatively integrated into their Studio 1 design project. 2. Online Tests Test questions will be based on the recommended text book and readings for this module and will be given topically to extend students’ vocabulary in architecture history. 3. Final Examination This final examination is designed to assess the ability of the students to clarify why a specific building is historically, culturally and architecturally importance; and how the design concepts can be developed and expanded to be creatively and innovatively integrated into contemporary architectural design. 4. Taylor’s Graduate Capabilities Portfolio The Taylor’s Graduate Capabilities (TGC) Portfolio is a document that collates all assessments produced in a module and reflects a student’s acquisition of the Module Learning Outcomes and Taylor’s Graduate Capabilities.  For students enrolled in the 2011 Programme Structure The TGC portfolio is an edited A3-size bound document that includes all the assessments produced in the module. Visual diary and process of work (packaged) are to be included as part of the portfolio submission. Students must reflect on their learning through the TGC Portfolio Form.  For students enrolled in the 2012 Programme Structure onwards Each student is to develop an e-Portfolio, a web-based portfolio in the form of a personal academic blog. The e-Portfolio is developed progressively for all modules taken throughout Semesters 1 to 5, and culminates with a final Portfolio in printed form produced in the final semester. The printed Portfolio must encapsulate the acquisition of Programme Learning Outcomes and Taylor’s Graduate Capabilities, and showcases the distinctiveness and identity of the student as a graduate of the programme.

Architecture Culture & History 1 (ARC 1313): Aug 2013 7 | P a g e Marks and Grading Table (Revised as per Programme Guide 2013) Assessments and grades will be returned within two weeks of your submission. You will be given grades and necessary feedback for each submission. The grading system is shown below: Grade Marks Grade Points Definition Description A 80 – 100 4.00 Excellent Evidence of original thinking; demonstrated outstanding capacity to analyze and synthesize; outstanding grasp of module matter; evidence of extensive knowledge base. A- 75 – 79 3.67 Very Good Evidence of good grasp of module matter; critical capacity and analytical ability; understanding of relevant issues; evidence of familiarity with the literature. B+ 70 – 74 3.33 Good Evidence of grasp of module matter; critical capacity and analytical ability, reasonable understanding of relevant issues; evidence of familiarity with the literature.B 65 – 69 3.00 B- 60 – 64 2.67 Pass Evidence of some understanding of the module matter; ability to develop solutions to simple problems; benefitting from his/her university experience. C+ 55 – 59 2.33 C 50 – 54 2.00 D+ 47 – 49 1.67 Marginal Fail Evidence of nearly but not quite acceptable familiarity with module matter, weak in critical and analytical skills. D 44 – 46 1.33 D- 40 – 43 1.00 F 0 – 39 0.00 Fail Insufficient evidence of understanding of the module matter; weakness in critical and analytical skills; limited or irrelevant use of the literature. WD - - Withdrawn Withdrawn from a module before census date, typically mid-semester. F(W) 0 0.00 Fail Withdrawn after census date, typically mid-semester. IN - - Incomplete An interim notation given for a module where a student has not completed certain requirements with valid reason or it is not possible to finalise the grade by the published deadline. P - - Pass Given for satisfactory completion of practicum. AU - - Audit Given for a module where attendance is for information only without earning academic credit. Hurdle Assessment Guideline for Architectural Design Studio Hurdle assessments are compulsory requirements within individual modules that must be met in order to achieve satisfactory results in those modules. The hurdle assessment for final submission of Architectural Design Studio modules is set at 40%. Students who obtain a D grade (40- 49) for final submission and overall D grade or higher for the module, will be permitted a resubmission of assessment. Students are required to obtain a minimum C grade in the resubmission to pass the module. Students who obtain a Fail grade (0-39) for the final submission will fail the module, regardless of his/her overall grade for the module. Failure of the module may impede student progression.
