Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
All parts of all assessment items must be attempted in order to be eligible to achieve an overall pass mark for the unit.
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.
As a student journalist, you must assume that all content you generate in this unit is intended for publication. As such, you should aim to produce professional work to a high standard, observing all relevant laws and ethical standards. You are to:
- Observe the MEAA Code of Ethics (refer to The Owl Canvas site);
- Refrain from interviewing anyone who presents a conflict of interest, such as family, friends or colleagues, without the express permission of your tutor;
- Disclose all conflicts of interest or other relevant information in your stories;
- Inform sources and interviewees that your stories are for publication via The Owl and/or UCFM;
- In the first instance, produce your own original video, audio, images and text — if your tutor expressly permits the use of non-original material, you must observe copyright law and ‘fair dealing’ provisions related to news reporting (refer to The Owl Canvas site) and give attribution if required;
- Not plagiarise; and
- Observe defamation, trespass and other relevant laws
Failure to follow these guidelines could result in a fail grade for an assessment task or for the unit.
If you have any questions about these guidelines or a specific assignment task, speak with your tutor.
This is a highly practical unit which requires an investment of time and effort to achieve success. Students are expected to devote time outside of workshops to practising and developing skills, and engaging in active problem solving in the face of challenges.
Being an intensely practical unit, students will find it difficult to achieve success in this unit without consistent engagement with all learning activities.
Students who attend campus for class or other purposes must play their part in keeping our campus and community safe by following these basic guidelines to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission:
- Practise good hand hygiene, washing hands regularly;
- If you do happen to cough or sneeze, please do so into the crook of your elbow, dispose of tissues immediately and wash hands immediately;
- Practise effective physical distancing;
- Follow all directions of teaching and other UC staff regarding safety measures;
- Stay off campus if you are unwell and get tested according to ACT Government guidelines; and
- Follow University communications about campus arrangements
