Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
An aggregate mark of 50% overall as well as a submission of the final project is required to pass the unit.
Your final grade will be determined as follows:
Final mark (100%) = Quiz 1 (20%) + Quiz 2 (30%) + Final Project (50%)
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.
There will be a total workload of 150 hours which comprises of 24 hours of lectures, 11 hours of labs, 36 hours of review/prep time for quizzes with 4 hours attempt time, and 75 hours of review/prep time and analysis/write-up for the final project.
Your participation in both class and online activities will enhance your understanding of the unit content and therefore the quality of your assessment responses. Lack of participation will result in your inability to satisfactorily pass assessment items.
