Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
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 may ask for an approved extension to a maximum of 5 days, unless they have Reasonable Adjustment Plan (RAP).
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.
The tutorial attendance is not mandatory, but strongly encouraged. These sessions will provide learners with the opportunity to have synchronous (at the same time) learning experiences with the teaching staff and with your fellow learners from across the unit.
Required IT skills
You will need to have access to, and familiarity with using, Microsoft Word and Power Point.
As in the unit of 11793, you will continue your access to the ABS TableBuilder, Excel and Tableau.
