Special assessment requirements
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
To succeed in this unit, each group member need to be actively involved in tutorials which scaffold the completion of the assessment tasks.
Inclusion and engagement
Due to MRS Practicum 2 attendance requirements, this unit has scheduled tutorials that commence when you return to campus from Clinical Block 3. This is to ensure that your learning is scaffolded before you undertake assessment tasks while on Clinical Block 4.
Required IT skills
Work placement, internships or practicums
