Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
In this unit, in order to pass the unit, you must pass the End-of-Semester 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.
It is an expectation that students will attend all classes online or on campus and that non-attendance be the exception. However, where possible all lectures will be recorded and made available on Canvas.
Required IT skills
Students are also assumed to have basic IT skills, such as word processing, familiarity with the Internet sufficient to use e-mail, and access unit information and research databases.
Work placement, internships or practicums
While there are no placements available, this unit is structured to wherever possible relate directly to real workplace experiences with case studies used frequently.
