Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
In this unit, students are expected to obtain an overall total score of at least 50/100. It is not necessary that students obtain a pass result (i.e. at least 50%) in each and every item of assessment. However, students are expected to obtain a pass result (i.e. at least 50%) in the final examination to pass this unit. The final mark is determined by adding the total number of marks achieved in the term. Final grades in this unit will be assessed according to performance in the items of the assessment described in "5a. Assessment Item Details".
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.
