Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
- The onus rests on the student to comply with timelines for completing and submitting assessments on time.
- This is part of the good management and performance skill we are seeking to develop in students through the educational process.
- Academic staff have a responsibility to ensure equity and fairness to all students who submit their assessments on time.
- For these reasons, you need to establish genuine circumstances for an extension to be granted. You will need to supply documentary evidence to establish the genuine nature of your circumstances.
- Please note; Extensions more of 7 days will not generally be granted unless there are extenuating circumstances.
Process for applying for an extension:
- Students are advised to liaise directly with their Unit Convenor for requests for extensions.
- Requests for extensions should be emailed to the Unit Convenor or approved delegate, although there may be circumstances where Inclusion and Engagement will liaise on behalf of the student.
- Requests for extension should be made using the Assignment Extension Application Form. The application must be made at least 5 days prior to the submission date.
- The Unit Convenor or Approved Delegate will inform the student of the outcome of their request as per Faculty procedures.
- Where the Unit Convenor or Delegate does not approve the assignment extension request, the student may seek consultation with Inclusion & Engagement. If considered appropriate, Inclusion and Engagement will liaise with the relevant academic staff member, following consultation with the student.
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.
It is expected that students will access all online learning materials and actively participate in online activities including group discussions. These components are central to this unit and will assist students in developing the knowledge and skills required for reflective and resilient practice.
Required IT skills
You must be able to word process assignments so that they are well presented, search library databases for relevant journal articles and other contemporary information, and access the UCLearn site for this unit. It is the individual student's responsibility to access appropriate help from the University IT services or the library if he or she does not have adequate skills.
This unit involves online meetings in real time using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality we recommend a microphone and speaker headset. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help familiarise you with the functionality of the virtual room.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Returning Graded Assignments:
Every effort will be made by the Unit Convenor to return graded assessments as soon as possible.
Please note, students who are given an extension should expect a delay in the assessment and return of their work.
