Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
For clarification, one (1) minute past the specified due date and time is considered a late submission.
It is students' responsibility to be familiar with the electronic submission process (eg. the use of Canvas and URKUND). Students are reminded to ensure they plan well ahead by enabling adequate time to submit assessments prior to the deadline.
End of Semester Quiz
Students who do not attempt the quiz by the due date and time will forfeit any marks and receive zero for that quiz. Any quizzes in progress at the due time will be automatically submitted. Students should ensure they begin their quiz attempt with sufficient time to complete it prior to the due time. If you are concerned about the stability and reliability of your internet connection, it is recommended you use a student computer in the library when completing quizzes.
Moderation of assessments
Please note that all assessments will be moderated as outlined in the Moderation Policy found on the Canvas page.
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.
This unit will be taught completely online and while there are no on-campus requirements, lectures, workshops and presentations will be delivered live and online using Microsoft Teams. It is expected that students will attend and actively participate in the lectures and workshops. It is also expected that students will engage with the pre-recorded lessons, additional activities, required readings, discussion forums and other resources provided on Canvas to get the most out of this unit.
Required IT skills
It is expected that students will possess UC IT entry skills, allowing them to access the Canvas site, and join a Microsoft Teams meeting. It is also assumed that students have an understanding of how to download and install software onto their computer. It is assumed students have a good understanding of data analysis software (e.g. Microsoft Excel), video presentation software (e.g. Microsoft Powerpoint) and word processing software (e.g. Microsoft Word). Introductory material and resources for conducting the relevant data analyses in Excel and RStudio will be provided on the Canvas site.
Work placement, internships or practicums
