Special assessment requirements
In order to pass this unit, students have to obtain at least 50% of the available marks and obtain at least 40% in the final exam.
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.
Attendances in lectures and tutorials are recommended strongly. Past experience indicates that students who do not attend lectures and/or do not listen to the recorded lecture and do not attend tutorials regularly, face difficulties in passing the unit as topics considered in lectures and tutorials may go beyond discussions provided in the textbook.
Students' tutorial and lecture participations will be monitored and recorded. Students are strongly recommended to participate voluntarily in the tutorials as evidence of participation will be utilised for changing grades for students whose marks are short marginally for the immediate higher grade.
In order to facilitate the management of the unit, students' attendances in lectures and tutorials will be monitored and recorded throughout the semester.
Required IT skills
Students are expected to have or to gain general computer skills and internet skills sufficient to undertake research and to prepare assignment. Students are also expected to have or gained the ability to use Canvas. Students must get themselves familiar with remotely proctored online exam through attending information sessions and trainings provided by the University on remotely proctored exam.
