Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
Students must complete all assessment work and obtain a mark of 50% or more to pass this 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.

Students require sufficient ICT skills to be able to use the Unit Canvas site effectively including uploaded assessment tasks, and be able to research using the library data bases and journals. Students also need to be able to access the Virtual Room as well as pre recorded lectures obtained from the lecture recordings icon on the Unit canvas site.
