Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
It is the students responsility to submit all assessment items on time and according to the guidlines in this unit outline.
Extensions requested after the due date of any assessment item will be only considered on a case by case basis by the Unit Convenor. It should not be assumed that any request for an extension will be granted. It is essential that all students make contact with their teaching team as soon as practical if an extension is to be requested.
Special assessment requirements
Students need to submit all assessment items, achieve 40% in the final examination and 50% overall to pass the unit.
In the event that more than 7 days has lapsed since the due date, it is expected that the assessment will still be submitted even though it will be awarded zero marks in accordance with university policy.
Supplementary assessment may be offered to eligible students at the end of the semester. Strict conditions apply in accordance with University Policy. Only the Unit Convenor will be able to provide a supplementary assessment.
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.
There is 10% allocated to student participation in tutorials. Non-attendance at tutorials will result in students forfeiting the chance to be awarded participation marks.
It is expected that all students will attend all tutorials having completed all assigned readings and other preparatory tasks fully prepared to contribute to group discussion.
Attendance at tutorials does not equate to participation. If a student attends all tutorials without contributing to all discussions, the most they can expect is 50% of available marks.
Required IT skills
Word Processing, Spreadsheet and internet search skills
The only anticipated costs will be the text book for this unit. The cost of the printed textbook is approximately $165.00 and the cost of a downloadable e-book is approximately $55.00. It is expected that all students will have access to the prescribed text from Week 1.
