Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
To pass the unit, the student must achieve at least 50% of the aggregated marks.
- Text-matching software will be used for the assessments.
- All the sources and references used in the essay MUST be in English only.
- All the assignments MUST be completed in English.
- Translating materials from another language into English without proper referencing and using them as your own work in an essay can be considered as academic misconduct. For example:
A student uses some materials in another language and uses a translation tool to change the essay into English. Then the student uses some programs/applications/websites to change/modify the translated essay. This kind of practice can be considered as academic misconduct.
- All the working files (i.e. initial drafts, editing notes) MUST be presented for any inquiry from the teaching staff.
- Using AI or similar programs to generate any part of the assignment work will be considered a breach of academic integrity.
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 expected to attend all the classes as scheduled and complete all assignments and research work that is set down for the unit in a timely manner.
Required IT skills
Students must be able to use MS Office software in English. Students should also have an interest in extending this knowledge to basic technology for use in the workplace.
