Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
To pass this unit, students must:
- Attempt all assessment items, and
- Achieve 50% overall.
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
There will be no supplementary assessments for this unit.
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.
Students are required to submit original work, ie their own work which has not previously been submitted for assessment in a unit of study. Submitting work that has already been submitted for assessment in another unit (self plagiarism) is grounds for Summary Inquiry investigation of academic misconduct, as students will have failed to comply with the University’s instructions in relation to an assessment.
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 workshop/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.
