Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
In this unit, students are expected to obtain an overall total score of at least 50/100. It is not necessary that students obtain a pass result (i.e. at least 50%) in each and every item of assessment. However, students are expected to obtain at least 40% in the final examination to pass this unit. The final mark is determined by adding the total number of marks achieved in the term. Final grades in this unit will be assessed according to performance in the items of the assessment described in "5a. Assessment Item Details".
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.
Applications for an extension to the due date for submission of an assessment item on the grounds of illness or other unavoidable and verifiable personal circumstances (that is, special consideration) should be submitted via email to the unit convener. Each application for an extension has to be supported by appropriate documentation. For advice on documentary evidence to support applications for extensions, please refer to the Deferred Examination Policy https://guard.canberra.edu.au/policy/policy.php?pol_id=3176.
“Students should apply for extensions before the due submission date, and are advised to do so as early as possible. Applications after the due submission date may be considered only in exceptional circumstances” Assessment Procedures 3.22.
If there is any doubt with regard to the requirements of any assignment or assessment procedure, the onus for clarifying the issue rests with the student who should contact the lecturer about the matter.
