Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
Note, it is COMPULSORY to attempt and submit all assessment items in this unit in order to pass this unit, otherwise a student will not have achieved all the learning outcomes required.

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, or listen to, lectures and tutorials and engage with online content made available on the UCLearn site for this unit. Lecture and tutorial content will also be made available online on the unit UCLearn site.
All students are expected to attend both the Week 9 and Week 13 Group presentations. All students are expected to stay for the duration of their allocated 2-hour presentation slot so they can listen and support their group and their unit peers.

Each member of the Project Group is REQUIRED to speak at least once, in either week 9 or 13.
