Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Students granted an extension should be made aware that the extension may result in delays in receiving grades on assignments, and/or course completion, and/or graduation. Detailed feedback will not be given on late assignments.
For assessment 3 the reasoning behind an extension request will be thoroughly investigated since it is a group assignment. If granted, the group must be willing to present on a day the convener allocates. Without presenting no marks will be awarded for the entire final assessment.
Special assessment requirements
You need to attempt all assessments to pass the unit. The Pass Grade for this Unit is 50%
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.
Contribution in tutorials contributes to a deeper understanding of the content of the unit and assignment requirements. It may be difficult to pass the unit without attending tutorials.
When attending the class or for other purposes, students 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 https://www.canberra.edu.au/coronavirus-advice
Required IT skills
Students are expected to be able to access materials on the unit's Canvas site, and competency in PC-based MS operating systems is expected (PowerPoint, Word).
If we move to ONLINE learning, students will need a working computer, webcam and mic to engage with unit learning.
