Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education (LANTITE)
It is a requirement that all students in Initial Teacher Education courses complete the LANTITE.
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.
Provision of valid documentation
Please note that the University takes student conduct very seriously. All documentation provided to University staff must be valid and the provision of fraudulent documentation carries with it potentially serious consequences, including suspension and/or exclusion from the University. Note that all allegations of student misconduct will be referred to the Associate Dean for Education (ADE) as a prescribed authority for investigation.
This unit requires accessing the preparatory material on Canvas regularly in order to successfully complete the LANTITE tests.
Students who are not successful on one or more LANTITE attempts will be required to attend workshops on exam taking strategies and to book for a consultation with Study Skills (Library) and/or the Maths and Statistics Help centre (MASH) in Building 6B. Active engagement with the Modules on the unit Canvas site will be taken into consideration.
Required IT skills
Note that this unit is self-paced. You are required to engage with the material on Canvas independently. Self-directed engagement with the resources on Canvas is crucial for your success in LANTITE.
Note that Engaging with LANTITE is a shell unit. The University of Canberra does not charge a tuition fee for enrolment in this unit. There is no credit point associated with Engaging with LANTITE (11696). ACER nevertheless charges a fee each time you register and attempt the test. More information regarding costs is available here.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Reading and complying with this information is a requirement for students enrolled in the unit.
