Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
It is a requirement of this unit that students attempt all assessment items to pass this unit. If a student is unable to complete any assessment item - the unit convener must be contacted at least three (3) working days prior to the assessment due date and supplied with appropriate documentation. Holidays/weddings/honeymoons are not considered university acceptable excuses.
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.
All assessment items within this unit will be moderated in accordance with the 'Moderation and Review' section of the Universities Assessment Policy.
Engagement with online content and attendance at workshops is expected. Non-attendance/engagement is likely to diminish a student's ability to meet unit learning objectives, and will likely impair assessment performance. Workshop attendance records will be kept and can be used as evidence of individual student engagement with the unit.
Required IT skills
This unit might involve online meetings in real time using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help familiarise you with the functionality of the virtual room.
