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 assessment items to ensure that marking is fair and consistent. Moderation processes are in line with the Faculty of Health guidelines and the University Assessment Procedures 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 via MyUC under ‘Study'.
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.
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.
