One Ouriginal preview will be available for students to check their assessment prior to submission. Students will only receive an Ouriginal for one draft submission of their work and once again when their assessment have been formally submitted. Do not submit drafts to other Canvas sites, as this will be considered a form of self-plagiarism. Do not submit any material that has been formally submitted to this unit or other units.
