Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Extensions for assessment tasks in this unit should be applied for by submitting an Extension Application Form, as described above, to the unit convenor via email. Documentation of evidence for the need for an extension should be submitted with the Form.
Whilst the standard 5% per calendar day late applies to submissions in this unit, specific penalties apply to particular aspects of certain assignments. For example, the late submission penalty would apply for late submission of Assignment 2: Becoming a professional, however, a student who does not attend their interview for this task would receive '0' against the criteria of the task that refer to the interview. These specific circumstances are described thoroughly in the details of each assessment task.
Students can submit all written assessments for a text matching URKUND report prior to final submission of the assessment task. Details are available on the unit UCLearn site.
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.
Assessment items will be moderated to ensure consistency and equity. Moderation of assessment items will include all failed submissions and a selection of other graded assessment items in each cohort in aherence with the Faculty of Health guidelines.
