Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Due dates for assessment
All assignments are required to be submitted by the due date.
There is no requirement for lecturers 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 will not be accepted for marking. 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 lecturer, 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
Note: In order to pass this unit, it is a requirement that all assessments must be attempted.
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 recommended that you attend all tutorials and computer labs as scheduled. Missing of any tutorial/lab class may cause you deduction of marks if there is any assigned mark for that particular class activity.
Required IT skills
Basic computer skill is expected. However, students will be guided thoroughly to become familiar with SPSS during the teaching period of this course.
