Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
LATE HAND IN POLICY
When a student does not submit an assessment task on or before the due date and time, their mark will be reduced by five percentage points per day from the total mark available (e.g. if an assessment was submitted three days late a mark of 70% would be reduced to 55%, or put another way, if a student was awarded 21 out of 30 and submitted three days late their mark would be reduced to 16.5 out of 30), up to a maximum of seven days at which time the assignment will no longer be accepted, unless there are approved extenuating circumstances
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 live lectures will be given. Pre-recorded lectures will be provided on Canvas weekly.
Data for the assignment will be collected in week 4 during the laboratory but will be made available to all students.
The final test will be given in week 13 and require all students to attend. If this is not possible, alternate arrangements may be able to be made (case by case basis)
The laboratory classes represent an application of the class material and thus provide a vital part of the understanding and learning process.
Required IT skills
The use of Canvas, library searching skills, word processing, manipulation of data and creation of graphs using Excel and electronic presentation skills are necessary for this unit.
