Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
To pass the unit, students MUST ATTEMPT ALL assessments
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.
180 hours for internships or project participation (in and out of workshop time).
Required IT skills
Students are expected to be able to access materials on the unit's Canvas site, and competency in PC-based MS operating systems is expected (PowerPoint, Word). All students are expected to use any programs and equipment they have been taught throughout their student career to put into practice when working on their client project or at the internship.
