Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
In this unit, we encourage you to be proactive about your work, to recognise early if you are not going to be able to meet a deadline and to negotiate an extension if necessary. This is a more authentic, industry-standard, approach to dealing with deadlines. As a result, this unit does not apply a penalty of 5% per day and instead applies a pass/fail policy on late assignments.
Late assignments are handed in after the due date and time or after an agreed extension date. Assignments submitted less than seven days late will be marked on a pass/fail basis (maximum grade of pass, 50%) and will not be provided with written feedback. This provides a strong incentive to get it in on time or negotiate an extension. Assignments over one week late will be deemed to have not been submitted and will receive a non-complete (NC) grade.
This policy is designed to encourage students to take ownership of their work and time commitments while also allowing for some flexibility. We feel it is far better (and more typical of real work conditions) to seek an extension well before the due date than to hand in a late assignment. We appreciate that there needs to be some flexibility, but we expect all students to manage their time and keep their tutors informed of any issues with their progress.
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.
Active participation is highly advisable to get the full benefit of the unit.
