Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
In order to pass this unit, students must obtain at least 50% of the available marks and obtain at least 40% in the final exam.
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 in lectures and tutorials/workshops is recommended strongly. Past experience indicates that students who do not attend lectures and tutorials/workshops regularly face difficulties in passing the subject as topics considered in lectures and tutorials/workshops may go beyond the treatment given in your textbook and recorded lectures. In most of the tutorial/workshop classes the relevant lecture topics will be summarised and discussed again.
In order to facilitate the management of the unit, students' attendances and participation in lectures and in tutorials/workshops will be monitored and recorded throughout the semester.
Required IT skills
You are expected to have or to gain general computer skills sufficient to undertake research and to prepare written assignments. You are also expected to have or gain the ability to use Canvas.
