Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Please note that this unit does not apply the 5% penalty per day; please see the special assessment items below for details.
HTML and CSS
The code submitted must be your own original work. You cannot use templates, external libraries, online generators (e.g. Wix, Squarespace) or commission someone else to produce the website on your behalf. Submitting work that is not your own is a form of plagiarism that will not be tolerated. If you are unsure please talk to your tutor.
Special assessment requirements
This unit has substantial opportunities for feedback and self-assessment, and so students who have fully participated in the unit activities are unlikely to fail. In some cases, resubmission of a failed assignment will be possible if the assessment item can feasibly be brought up to a pass level. A typical example might be an assignment that fails due to a missing component that can readily be supplied in a resubmission. The maximum grade for a resubmitted assessment item is 50%. Resubmissions are given at the discretion of the unit convenor, and must be applied for in writing (via email) within one week of the assessment grade being released.
All extensions must be applied for in writing to the unit convenor no less than three days before the due date of the assignment, and preferably well before this.
Extension requests should state the reason the extension is being requested (unless the basis for extension is part of adjustment advice from inclusion and welfare), and provide a proposed submission date. Students should not assume an extension will be automatically granted.
In this unit, we encourage you to be proactive about your work, to recognise early if you are not going to be able to meet a deadline, and to negotiate an extension if necessary. We feel this is a much more authentic approach to dealing with deadlines. As a result, this unit does not apply a penalty of 5% per day, and instead applies pass/fail policy on late assignments.
Late assignments are assignments that are handed in after the due date and time, or after an agreed extension date. Assignments submitted less than seven days late will be marked on a pass/fail basis (maximum grade of pass, 50%) and will not be provided with any written feedback. This provides strong incentive to get it in on time or negotiate an extension. Assignments that are more than one week late will be deemed to have not been submitted and will receive a non-complete (NC) grade.
This policy is designed to encourage students to take ownership of their work and time commitments, while also allowing for some flexibility. We feel it is far better (and more typical of real work conditions) to seek an extension well before the due date than to hand in a late assignment. We appreciate that there needs to be some flexibility, but we expect all students to manage their time and to keep their tutors informed of any issues with their progress.
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.
Learning material for the unit will be available on Canvas, however practical demonstrations of this content will only be conducted in on-campus tutorials. It will be extremely difficult to pass this unit without attending the on-campus tutorials.
Required IT skills
Students are expected to possess sound computer literacy. A fundamental familiarity with design software is beneficial.
Before completing this unit, you should have completed 11655 - Introduction to interaction design (or similar).
This is a practical unit and students will be required to write their own code.
