It is highly recommended that students read broadly and independently in the genres they are attempting for their assessment submissions. Please consult the teaching staff for recommendations if you need them.
Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Assessment items must be submitted to the assignment area in the unit's UCLearn site, relating to that piece of assessment. It is the student's responsibility to upload the correct and corresponding draft or assessment item, to the right submission section.
Work will only be accepted in Word or Word-compatible documents, unless another arrangement has been made with the tutor. Submissions that are late without an extension will receive a numerical grade only (with late penalties applied) and no commentary. Where students have elected not to meet with their mentors during the specified weeks, feedback will be minimal.
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.
Attendance is not assessed, but it is strongly recommended that students attend all seminars, and at least 2 writing studios per week. Students are responsible for arranging and attending meetings with their mentors (in person or by Skype), and submitting draft work to their mentors for consideration by the due date. Students who do not attend mentor meetings or share work in good time with their mentors can expect minimal feedback on their submissions.
