Extensions & Late submissions
All activities must be completed satisfactorily during the scheduled tutorial times.
Special assessment requirements
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.
To meet the learning outcomes of this unit, students need to attend and be actively involved in the tutorials, which scaffold the completion of the assessment tasks.
Inclusion and engagement
To meet the learning outcomes of this unit, students need to attend and actively participate in each tutorial. Tutorial activities in this unit scaffold assessment tasks.
