Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Assessment Task 3 - "Oral Presentation" will be presented orally in a forum appropraite to the research project. It will be marked live but recorded for moderation purposes.
Special assessment requirements
The due dates of assignments should be negotated with the relevant supervisor as different projects may have different requirements. An example of this a submission an ethics committee. The submission dates for this may be prior to the due date advertised in the unit outline and out of control of the supervisor or students.
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.
Due dates and extensions
As described in the assessment information the due dates for assessmet items will vary according to the project. The unit outline has listed the end of the semester as the due date for all items but gnerally these will need to be submitted during the semester depending on the item. For example, an ethics applcaition may be due before the advertised due date. This means that it is important that students negotiate specific due dates with their supervisors at the start of the semester or before.
Students should regularly liaise with their Honours supervisor and/or the Unit Convener to discuss their workload management.
Students are required to be self-directed in pursuing their research project. While the supervisors will provide support, advice and direction, it is the student's responsibility to remain focused on the project.
Please refer to the Occupational Therapy Honours Information Booklet for information on the roles of supervisors.
Required IT skills
Students will require advanced IT skills to:
- Search for relevant literature and information pertinent to the project
- Complete templated forms and applications
- Develop audiovsual presentations
Work placement, internships or practicums
This unit may require students to undertake experiences in the practice context in order to successfully complete their research. Where this is required, organisation-specific requirements may need to be met prior to work site visits. The Course Convener will provide advice and instruction in this regard.
