Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
If you think you won't be able to get an assignment in by its due date please speak to your tutor. We are happy to be flexible with due dates (within reason) and don't want our assessment tasks being a major source of anxiety for our students. If you need more time on an assignment, please come to us early with a well thought-out plan for completing the assignment. For example, if another unit has a big assignment due on Friday, and you just need until Monday to finish it, then tell us that. The worst thing you can do is just miss the due date (it costs you marks), but the second worst thing you can do is leave the extension late and then make us work out when and how you'll hand it in. Bring us a solution to your problem well before the due date (a week is fine) and we'll try to find a way to accommodate you.
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.
While we do not penalise people for non-attendance, weekly attendance at labs and lectures is expected (esepcially if they're online!). Students who do not attend classes regularly will miss out on important information, and this will affect your grade. Data also shows quite clearly that students who miss class are at a higher risk of failing a unit, and statistically receive lower results than those who come every week.
This unit has only 3 hours of face to face classes per week. You are expected to put in additional hours outside class time (up to 7 hours a week) to get the greatest benefit from the unit and stay on top of the content.
Inclusion and engagement
We are extremely keen to ensure all our students are well looked after. Often it's very easy for us to make a small change to the way we teach to make it easier for you to learn. If you have any kind of condition (including mental health concerns) that may affect your ability to complete the unit to the level you feel you could if you did not have that condition please contact Student Services who can direct you to University services that will help your tutors and lecturers make sure you are given a fair go on an even level with everyone.
Students should endeavour to maintain at least 80% attendance for all lectures and tutorials, whether they are virtual or face-to-face. Attendance below 80% may adversely affect your ability to complete the unit at a satisfactory level.
Students who attend campus for class or other purposes must play their part in keeping our campus and community safe by following these basic guidelines to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission:
- Practise good hand hygiene, washing hands regularly;
- If you do happen to cough or sneeze, please do so into the crook of your elbow, dispose of tissues immediately and wash hands immediately
- Practise effective physical distancing;
- Follow all directions of teaching and other UC staff regarding safety measures;
- Stay off campus if you are unwell and get tested according to QLD Government guidelines, and
- Follow University communications about campus arrangements https://www.canberra.edu.au/coronavirus-advice
