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 or assessment item, to the right submission section.
To pass this unit, students must:
- Attempt all assessment items, and
- Achieve 50% overall.
Special assessment requirements
Moderation will be undertaken for all 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 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.
There will be no supplementary examination or assessment offered to students that do not contain an overall aggregate mark of 50%.
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.
You will note the student workload guideline above (6a).
The scheduling for all units in the Bachelor of Nursing as per Allocate+ indicates that students are expected to undertake up to 5 hours per week per unit of directed/self directed learning (SDL) related to assessment preparation, clinical learning or module content revision.
Each unit has virtual tutorials/seminars of which one per module/week will typically be recorded for those who cannot make their scheduled times, this approach supports flexible delivery, recognising the many priorities that students are managing.
Inclusion and engagement
It is strongly recommended that students who need assistance in undertaking the unit because of disability or an ongoing health condition register with the Inclusion and Engagement Office as soon as possible so that reasonable adjustment arrangements can be made.
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 Online engagement
