Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Students must submit original work that has not been previously submitted for assessment at the University of Canberra. Self plagiarism is grounds for referral for academic misconduct. Students are encouraged to note the academic integrity section of this unit outline.
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 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 (online or face-to-face) 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.
All Bachelor of Nursing students are expected to undertake up to 5 hours per week per unit of directed/self-directed learning (SDL) related to content engagement, assessment preparation, clinical learning or revision in addition to their timetabled unit contact (ie. lectures, workshops, tutorials).
It is expected that students participate in all learning opportunities in this unit, inclusive of all timetabled activities. Assessment items are linked to the unit learning outcomes, the NMBA Registered Nurse standards for practice and professional codes. Therefore, all students are expected to attend and actively participate in all learning activities scheduled for this unit. Student can self-select their preferred classes via the Allocate+ system.
