Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Late submission of the research paper without an approved extension will result in a penalty of 5% reduced marks from the total available, per calendar day late. Research paper submitted over 7 days late will not be accepted.
Special assessment requirements
- An aggregate mark of 50% is required to pass the unit.
- Students who do not participate in the Final Exam will receive a final grade of NC (Not Complete).
- The unit convener reserves the right to question students on any of their submitted work and may adjust awarded marks based on this questioning. See Grading Schema for the full grading schema and grade descriptors.
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.
In order to get the most out of your studies, it is strongly recommended that you plan your time commitments, actively engage in class discussions (face-to-face), and to get better understanding of this unit we provide practical sessions to learn you how you can configure switches, routers, and different network elements , and work with your peers as part of your study. The amount of time you will need to spend on study in this unit will depend on a number of factors including your prior knowledge, learning skill level and learning style. Nevertheless, in planning your time commitments you should note that for a 3 credit point unit the total notional workload over the semester or term is assumed to be 150 hours. The total workload for units of different credit point value should vary proportionally. For example, for a 6 credit point unit the total notional workload over a semester or term is assumed to be 300 hours.

Your participation in both class and practicl sessions will enhance your understanding of the unit content and therefore the quality of your assessment responses. Lack of participation may result in your inability to satisfactorily pass assessment items.
Required IT skills
This unit involves online meetings in real time using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help familiarise you with the functionality of the virtual room.
