Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
All written components for assignments must be submitted (uploaded) through the unit Canvas site by the due date.
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.
Assessment Items and Resubmission
In each assessment task, an ungraded pass is achieved by demonstrating competency overall through a passing grade. Students must demonstrate an appropriate standard across all task requirements. If a student has passed assessment task requirements overall but is marked as just below competency standards on some criteria, they will have the opportunity to address these criteria through one resubmission to demonstrate competency at appropriate standard. For the cognitive assessment demonstration in this unit, this may involve readministration to address competencies. Unit convenors (or markers) will provide specific feedback in these circumstances to inform the student of the issues and criterion to be addressed. However, if the assignment still does not meet appropriate competency standards following resubmission, a fail grade will be applied. If a student has not passed the assessment task requirements overall in the first submission, there will be no option to resubmit and a fail grade will be applied.
Students must submit/attempt all assignments to be eligible to pass the unit, and must achieve an ungraded pass in all assessment tasks in a given unit to achieve an ungraded pass for the unit.
It is expected that all students will attend all workshops. Student should familiarise themselves with attendance rules in the Master of Clinical Psychology Program. If you cannot attend a workshop, you are encouraged to discuss this absence with your unit convener in advance. Students must provide documentation for any absences, and if accepted by the unit convenor, provide a 1000 word summary on the topic/s missed (due by end of semester) in order to demonstrate competency. Students cannot miss more than one full day (or two three-hour workshops) in a unit or they will fail the unit. Material will not be repeated outside workshop time for those who miss a workshop with an approved absence. Delivery of material discussed in workshops will be assumed to be known by all, even those who do not attend. Please note that you may fail the unit if you miss any workshops without documentation given the unit is competency based, and students cannot miss mandatory workshops (outlined below). Students are also expected to attend workshops on time and work effectively with others.
Please note that the two days of cognitive assessment workshops scheduled in this unit require mandatory attendance. Students cannot miss mandatory workshops, and if they are absent for these workshops they will receive a fail grade for the unit or should consider a late withdrawal if there are extenuating circumstances. If a student has appropriate documentation supporting an absence under exceptional circumstances on the day of a mandatory workshop, students may be given the option to attend the workshop when it is next delivered in the course (and receive a WHE grade until such time if approved by the ADE and meeting all other pass requirements for the unit) or complete an equivalent workshop approved by the unit convenor at the student's own expense (please note documentation will be required as proof of completion). Students should also note that absences may impact course progression.
Required IT skills
Work placement, internships or practicums
This unit includes simulated training in cognitive assessments.
In accordance with University policy (3.15 in Assessment Procedures), moderation is required to ensure consistency in standards of marking in a unit. The Master of Clinical Psychology program and units undertake moderation in a number of domains, specifically through review of unit outlines and unit content, assessment item details and marking guides, and in marking assignments. All assessment pieces or marks resulting in a fail grade will be moderated by another member of the clinical team, as well as a random selection of assignments covering a range of participants in the unit. This process ensures that marking across the program is consistent. All units are subjected to moderation at the Discipline level at the conclusion of each teaching period.
