Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Assessments will be submitted via this units Canvas page. All extensions, moderations and particulars are outlined in the University of Canberra's Assessment policy and procedure.
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
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.
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.
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.
Inclusion and engagement
Students within 364JA Bachelor of Nursing must ensure that they meet the Inherent Requirements relevant to the profession of nursing – it is each students responsibility to read and understand these UC Nursing Inherent Requirements statements. For support in meeting the inherent requirements, please make a time with firstname.lastname@example.org and your course convenor BNConvenor@canberra.edu.au
It is required that all students participate in all unit learning opportunities in this unit. This is inclusive of all scheduled face to face classes, workshops, and on-line requirements. Assessment items are linked to the unit learning outcomes, Registered Nurse Standards for Practice (ANMC, 2016) and also professional codes of conduct. Workshops/seminar attendance is required to enable students to learn to apply concepts, explore clinical experience in a safe practice environment, and develop and enhance communication skills for safe practice. It also enables students to ask questions, engage in discussion 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 upload to the Canvas university site submissions in various 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.
