Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
There is no requirement for tutors to mark assessment items that are submitted late. However in this unit the following practice will be followed. Late assessment which is submitted within 7 days of the specified submission date and time will be accepted for marking. However, 5% of the total marks allocated for that item of assessment will be deducted for each day the assessment is overdue. Late assessment submitted more than 7 days after the prescribed date and time may not be marked. In this case a student will not receive any marks for the relevant piece of assessment.
If for any reason you are unable to do an assignment by the due date you must submit, to the UCC Reception, a request for an extension in writing before the due date (unless impossible) setting out in detail the genuine and exceptional reason for requesting the extension. If there is a medical or counselling reason for the extension request it must be accompanied by a medical or counselling certificate which clearly states:
- that you were unfit to complete the assignment;
- the date of the medical or counselling consultation; and
- the period for which you were / are / will be unfit to complete the assignment.
Special assessment requirements
To pass this unit students MUST attempt the final exam and obtain at least overall 50% of the total mark.
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.
Weekly lecture: 1.5 hours/week, 11 times
Weekly tutorial: 1.5 hours/week, 11 times
Weekly workshop: 2 hours/week, 11 times
Weekly study commitment, in addition to the 3 items above: 2 hours/week, 12 times (including mid-term break)
Weekly quiz and Workplace simulation part C: Workshop participation: preparation time of 2 hours/quiz, 11 times

In this unit there are three (3) classes per week: one lecture (1.5 hours), one tutorial (1.5 hours) and one workshop (2 hours). All classes are compulsory for all students. Students who have less than 80% attendance rate across all classes will be identified as 'at risk' students who have a high chance of failing the unit.
