Special assessment requirements
You will obtain a pass or better in this unit if you submit each assessment item, achieve a final cumulative mark of at least 50%.
Non-submission of an assessment, other than mandatory assessments, will result in a fail grade in that assessment item.
Assessment items 1 and 2 need to be submitted online on the Canvas site of the unit under the relevant assignment. If you put the assignment in the wrong box and the assignment submission is delayed it may incur a late penalty (Please section 5b).
See the policies above.
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.
Students can apply for an extension to the submission due date for an assessment item through extenuating, evidenced circumstances (specific details are found through the Assessment Policy and Procedures. Section 9.12). Extensions must be applied for before the due date. Documentary evidence (e.g. medical certificate) will be expected for an extension to be granted, however this will not guarantee that the application will be successful. The Unit Convener or relevant Discipline Convener will decide whether to grant an extension and the length of the extension.
An Assignment Extension form is available from the Student Forms page.
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.
Inclusion and engagement
See 5b above
Required IT skills
You are expected to have or to gain general computer skills sufficient to undertake research and to prepare written assignments. You are also expected to have or gain the ability to use Canvas and write in the online tests (quizzes) on Canvas.
Text book and calculators if you do not have one
Work placement, internships or practicums
The onus is on you to clarify issues in a timely manner if there is any doubt with regard to the requirements of any assignment or assessment procedure, the onus for clarifying the issue rests with the student who should contact the lecturer about the matter.
Citations used in assessment items should follow Harvard referencing style. If you are unfamiliar with Harvard referencing please seek the assistance of Library staff.
