Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
For group work assessments, only one student in the group needs to upload the group assignment, as long as all the names (full names) of the students are evident in that document/assessment (such as in the credits for a film).
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 much of the material needed to pass this unit occurs in the weekly workshops through group meetings, presentations, sharing of knowledge it is strongly advised that students attend the workshops each week.
Much of the information needed to pass this unit occurs during the weekly workshops - especially those from weeks 1-7.
