Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Deferrals and extensions
If a student needs to request a deferred examination or an extension to an assessment, they must submit a written application to the unit covenor. This application should include the reasons for the request and the extenuating circumstances involved, along with any relevant evidence such as a medical certificate or death notice. Please note that you cannot defer a deferred exam, and if you do not attempt it, you will receive a zero grade for the assessment. For more information on accepted extenuating circumstances and the necessary documentary evidence, please refer to the Assessment Procedures (https://www.canberra.edu.au/Policies/PolicyProcedure/Index/1607).
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.
The laboratory classes for this unit are not compulsory and marks are not given for attendance. However, the content covered in these classes will form a large part of the assessments and engagement in these classes are highly recommended.
Required IT skills
It is expected that students will possess UC IT entry skills. Students are expected to use the Canvas site for this unit to access all of the required materials and to complete the online assessments.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Before starting on-campus laboratory classes, all students must complete a laboratory induction. It is crucial for students to adhere to the Laboratory rules at all times. Failure to comply with the rules will lead to exclusion from the laboratory.
