Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
In order to pass this unit, you must complete and submit the two (2) assignments, complete the examination and achieve an overall mark of at least 50 per cent of the total available marks.
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 recommended that students attend all lectures and tutorials. Students must submit all pieces of assessment
Required IT skills
Students need to know how to access the University of Canberra's Learnonline system. Students will also be exposed to introductory level Microsoft Excel techniques.
