Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
Where possible, all assessment items will be submitted online via the teaching site in UCLearn. The first page of each assessment item should include the following information:
- Student ID number:
- Assessment Name:
- Word Count (if applicable):
Assessment items must be submitted to the assignment area in the UCLearn teaching site, relating to that piece of assessment. It is the student's responsibility to upload the correct and corresponding draft or assessment item, to the right submission section.
Late submissions will only be accepted for a limited period. If more than one late submission is made within that period, only the first late submission will be accepted for marking and may be subject to penalties as detailed in the Assessment Procedures.
Students can apply for an extension to the submission due date for an assessment item due to extenuating, evidenced circumstances (specific details are found in the Assessment Procedures). An extension must be applied for before the due date. Documentary evidence (e.g. medical certificate) will be expected for an extension to be granted, however this will not guarantee that the application will be successful. The Unit Convener or relevant Program Director/Course Convener will decide whether to grant an extension and the length of the extension.
An Assignment Extension form is available from the Student Forms page.
Late submission of assignments without an approved extension will result in a penalty of 5% reduced marks from the total available, per calendar day late. An assignment submitted over 7 days late will not be accepted.
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.
Group Assignment Peer Assessment
In order to recognise the contributions of individual members in a team environment a peer review will be conducted potentially resulting in members of a group receiving different scores. The details of this peer review will be published in the assignment details.
The following table is a guide that may help you plan your semester's effort levels:
|Activity||Hours per week||Semester total|
|Pega sample certification exam||-||6|
This unit requires the theoretical business process management concepts and the Pega implementations in order to demonstrate the achievement of the learning outcomes of this unit. Students will use the Pega platform to undertake the training that includes reading and lab material. While some of this material will be delivered in the lectures, students should ensure that they have completed all the reading and Pega material each week. Refer to assessment items on the Canvas site for further details.
Students who do not demonstrate their individual assigment in a recorded video with their face showing without prior approval from the unit convener as per the requirements for extensions (see section 5b) will receive zero (0) marks for the individual assignment.
Required IT skills
IT skills commensurate with advanced study of information technology are assumed.
