Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
Please note that you are required to submit your written assignments online through Canvas site, and your work should be submitted to URKUND to check for text matching. Please bear in mind that I don't give a second chance to anybody with high URKUND report and the reports will be sent directly to Associate Dean of Education Office for further investigation. As a student from University of Canberra you are responsible to familiarize yourself with UC policies about misconduct including plagiarism.
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.
It is essential that the students come prepared for tutorials by attending the lectures and by reading designated chapters for the tutorials.
Required IT skills
Work placement, internships or practicums
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.
You must at all times comply with the Student Academic Integrity Policy. Full referencing is therefore required for all written tasks submitted by you. The style of referencing by default in the Faculty of Business Government and Law is the author-date or 'Harvard' system, as outlined in the University Library Citation Guide available at: http://www.canberra.edu.au/library/research-gateway/research_help/referencing-guides. The style of referencing for this unit is consistent use of APA or Harvard system.
The onus is on students to clarify issues in a timely manner
If there is any doubt about the requirements of any assignment or assessment procedure, the onus for clarifying the issue rests with the student who should contact the unit convener about the matter well before the due dates.
Note: Work submitted late, except when having an approval from Inclusion and Walfare, will be penalised at the rate of 5% of the possible mark deducted per day late.
Under the Student Grievance Resolution Policy there is no right of appeal against assessment results on the basis of academic judgment (i.e. that the student believes their answer merited a higher mark).
This policy ‘applies to appeals on procedural grounds against unit results with respect to any final grades. In general, the University does not recognise grievances relating to academic judgment.'
Marking and moderation
Your assessment item may be marked by a member of staff other than the unit convener. Assessment items will also be moderated in accordance with University policy and this involves more than one marker. If marks are visible in the Canvas gradebook they must be treated as indicative only until the moderation process is complete. As a result of moderation a first mark given to an assessment item may be adjusted up or down.
