Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Special assessment requirements
Presentation: 1.5 line spacing for written assignments, single spacing for tables.
Written assessments should be submitted with a cover sheet including their student number, class details and word count. No names should be included on assignment submissions to enable blind marking.
Referencing requirements: Students must use the APA 7th method of referencing.
The following useful resource on referencing is available at: http://www.canberra.edu.au/library/research-gateway/research_help/referencing-guides
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 at classes is compulsory in this course, as per the Masters of Midwifery Practice curriculum approved by ANMAC in 2018. Students who do not submit to these attendance requirements repeatedly may be required to undertake additional reading and submit work in lieu of missed classes or not pass the unit. Failure to do so will result in a fail grade due to non-completion being recorded.
