Your guide to T1 end-of-unit assessments: your home IT checklist and where to get help

The Trimester 1, 2023 end-of-unit assessment (EoUA) period is getting closer – it will run from Monday 5 to Friday 16 June. Make sure you understand the different types of assessment and check your EoUA timetable for your specific information.

With most EoUAs and exams delivered through your CloudDeakin unit site, now’s the time to ensure you understand how to complete your assessments from home.

For more practical advice on setting up your space, including troubleshooting tips to help you during your EoUA, read our CloudDeakin technical support information and FAQs. Keep this information on hand throughout the EoUA period in case you experience any technical troubles and need to contact IT for assistance. 

How special consideration works

Special consideration is intended to help you deal with short-term or unexpected setbacks like medical problems or other personal hardships. You’ll need to provide documentary evidence such as a medical certificate and/or statutory declaration – but conditions apply. 

Technology issues during your assessment aren’t grounds for special consideration where the full allotment of time (assessment duration plus reading and technical support time) has been provided – unless they cannot be resolved in the time available for you to complete the task.

If you experience any technology issues, contact the IT Service Desk on 1800 463 888 as soon as you can. Support is available 8am–10pm, Monday to Friday and 9am–5pm, Saturday to Sunday (AEST) during the entire EoUA period – although please note that you may experience longer than normal wait times. 

If your technical difficulties can’t be resolved during your assessment task, you must submit an IT Help support ticket and record your receipt number. You then have up to three working days after the due date of your EoUA or exam to apply for special consideration
