Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
You will obtain a pass or better in this unit if you submit each assessment item, and achieve at least 50 per cent of the total marks for the final examination and obtain a final cumulative mark of at least 50 per cent.
Failure to submit assessment item: If you fail to submit your assessment items by the due dates because of illness, misadventure or unavoidable commitments, please discuss the matter with the unit convener before the due date or as soon as possible thereafter. You will be required to provide appropriate documentary evidence.
If someone is sick, provides appropriate documentary evidence, and does not hand in the assignment on time, he or she will have to do some other piece of assessment. Extension of time for assignment submission would be purely at the discretion of the unit convener.
A late penalty of 5% of marks will apply for every one (1) working day that you are late in submitting your work unless the unit convener's prior permission for an extension has been obtained. No submissions will be accepted after the return of graded work. Assignments received more than one week late will not be marked and the student will receive zero mark for the assignment.
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.
No specific requirements
Required IT skills
Use of calculators, computer, web searching skills and familiarity with excel spreadsheet modelling is required.
