Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
- Assessment items must be submitted to the assignment area in the unit's UCLearn site, relating to that piece of assessment. It is the student's responsibility to upload the correct and corresponding draft of assessment item to the right section.
Special assessment requirements
- Moderation will be undertaken for assessment items to ensure that marking is fair and consistent. Moderation will take place in line with the Faculty of Health guidelines and the university assessment procedures document https://www.canberra.edu.au/Policies/PolicyProcedure/Index/369
- Students can apply for an extension to the submission due date for an assessment item through extenuating, evidenced circumstances (specific details are found in the Assessment Procedures).
- Extensions must be applied for before the due date. Documentary evidence (e.g. medical certificate) will be expected for an extension to be granted, however this will not guarantee that the application will be successful. The Unit Convener or relevant Program Director will decide whether to grant an extension and the length of the extension.
- An Assignment Extension form is available from the Student Forms page.
- Late submissions will only be accepted for a limited period. If more than one late submission is made within that period, only the first late submission will be accepted for marking and may be subject to penalties as detailed in the Assessment Procedures.
- Late submission of assignments without an approved extension will result in a penalty of 5% reduced marks from the total available, per calendar day late. An assignment submitted over 7 days late will not be accepted.
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.
Please familiarise yourself with Canvas and use the Canvas help options as required.
Inclusion and engagement
- Any student with a reasonable adjustment plan (RAP) is asked to contact the unit convenor if they wish to enact this plan for support with assessments or classroom engagement or Online engagement.
- For 2020, given the unpredictable nature of the COVID – 19 pandemic and to ensure that students and staff remain safe and compliant with physical distancing recommendations, this unit will be delivered online; there is no face to face teaching.
- It is expected that students participate in all learning opportunities in this unit, and complete all activities within the learning modules, including directed and self directed study, and actively participate in scheduled online sessions via the Canvas Virtual Room. Participating in class discussions to clarify concepts and to develop confidence with professional communication and verbally expressing ideas can be helpful for students and also supports the learning of student peers (see NMBA RN Standards for Practice 2016 Standard 2 and related criterion https://www.nursingmidwiferyboard.gov.au/Codes-Guidelines-Statements/Professional-standards/registered-nurse-standards-for-practice.aspx
- Furthermore, participation in virtual sessions enables students to ask questions and develop professional behaviours and accountability for safe practice.
Required IT skills
Please note Section 4 B: materials required. You will require computer skills to access the internet and be able to upload to the ‘Canvas' university site written submissions using ‘word' and PowerPoint formats. This unit may involve online meetings in real time using a virtual room. 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, please visit the UCLearn Student Help link.
