Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
The assessment must be submitted online via the teaching site in UCLearn. The first page of each assessment item should include the following information:
Student ID number
Word Count (minus front matters and references)
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.
Please pace yourself! It is easy to fall behind. It is also easy to get burned out. Please ensure that you schedule study periods regularly throughout the week.
Success in the unit will be more likely if students work systematically through all modules and attend the weekly Virtual Session.
