Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Drop in sessions are scheduled during semester to provide support to students in completing assessment items. By attending these sessions, students will have the opportunity to:
- Clarify the requirements of the assessment item
- Understand the marking rubric
- Receive feedback regarding the general structure of their intended response
The details of the drop in sessions are:
Assignment 1: Thursday 17 February 4.30pm - 5.30pm
Assignment 2: Thursday 17 March 5.30pm - 6.30pm
Assignment 3: Thursday 21 April 4.30pm - 5.30pm
Clarification regarding assessment tasks can also be obtained by posting on Canvas discussion boards. Questions raised on discussion boards within 48 hours of the assessment due date/time will not be responded to by teaching staff.
Staff will not respond to questions regarding assessment items raised by email. Please post these questions on Canvas.
Assignments will be moderated according to the Discipline moderation procedures. These can be found on the Canvas site,
Once marking and moderation have been completed, students will receive their marks and appropriate feedback. If a student would like to receive further feedback, a time will be allocated for students to book a time with the unit convener.
Regarding word limits and time limits for assignments: The examiner will stop reading/listening when the allocated word limit/time allocation is reached. Content beyond these points will not be assessed.
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.
It is essential that students actively participate in all lectures and tutorials. Such participation is required by students in order to meet the Australian Occupational Therapy Competency Standards (2018). Therefore, except in the case of extenuating circumstances, 100% attendance at the lectures and tutorials It is also expected that if students are unable to meet these participation requirements they inform the Unit Convener as soon as practical, by telephone or email.
Required IT skills
It is expected that students will have basic word processing skills, an ability to use databases to search for journal articles, and to regularly access their UC email account and Canvas. Canvas is an online learning site, which provides students with access to readings and learning activities.
Lecturers will communicate with all students via their UC email account and announcements on Canvas. It is the students' responsibility to regularly check their email and Canvas for messages, information and or instructions.
