Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
Students must complete all components of assessment and achieve 50% overall in order to pass the unit. A deferred examination for the final examination will only be available to students who present a valid doctor's certificate. Re-submission of assessment items will not be allowed.
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 are expected to attend programmed face-to-face activities including lectures and tutorials.
Where there are compulsory in-class participation activities, contributions to face-to-face activities are an important measure for assessment of participation.
Marks in this unit are cumulative.
URKUND will be used to check for plagiarism for all assignments. Your assessments must be written in your words and citations used when referencing material from published sources.
One URKUND preview will be available for students to check their assessment prior to submission. Students will only receive an URKUND for one draft submission of their work and again once their assessment have been formally submitted. Do not submit drafts to other Canvas sites, as this will be considered a form of self-plagiarism.
Do not submit any material that has been formally submitted to other units. This is a form of academic misconduct.
