Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
LATE HAND IN POLICY
When a student does not submit an assessment task on or before the due date and time, their mark will be reduced by five percentage points per day from the total mark available (e.g. if an assessment was submitted three days late a mark of 70% would be reduced to 55%, or put another way, if a student was awarded 21 out of 30 and submitted three days late their mark would be reduced to 16.5 out of 30), up to a maximum of seven days at which time the assignment will no longer be accepted, unless there are approved extenuating circumstances.
Special assessment requirements
All marks will be moderated in accordance with the moderation policy outlined on the Canvas site.
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.
Students are required to attend all laboratories for this unit. Failure to attend will put students at risk of failing the unit and jeopardise their ability to gain professional accreditation. Students are encouraged to practice in labs outside of class time to ensure they have enough hands-on experience to pass this unit. Students will need to make bookings for the labs through Rebecca Tanner.
You are required to gain 50% or above in your practical case oral exam to pass the unit. You are also required to gain 50% overall to pass this unit.
Required IT skills
It is expected that all students will have basic word-processing skills and appropriate IT skills for using Canvas, accessing relevant course material and information, and submitting assignments. For Canvas training and support please contact: (https://learnonline.canberra.edu.au/studentSupport.php) or the Library. If you are unfamiliar with searching specialist databases for accessing Physiology Journals please see the UC library site for details of training sessions: http://www.canberra.edu.au/library/research-gateway/research-skills-training
