Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Students should keep a copy of all assessment items that are submitted at least until unit grades have been published at the end of semester.
Special assessment requirements
In order to pass this unit, students have to obtain a mark of 50% or greater for the assessment as a whole. Higher grades will be awarded on the basis of the total mark being ≥ 65% for a credit, ≥ 75% for a distinction and ≥ 85% for a high distinction. Some scaling of marks and academic judgement may be applied to determine students' final grades - in this process no student will be disadvantaged.
In the case of any assignment that places you in jeopardy of a Fail in the whole unit, appropriate moderation procedures will be used.
If there is any doubt with regard to the requirements of any particular assignments or assessment procedure, the onus for clarifying the issue rests with the student who should contact the unit convener about the matter.
All work quoted from any source should be appropriately referenced using the "Harvard (2021)" referencing style as described in the link below (note that there are multiple versions of the Harvard referencing style, and you should use the one described here).
Students who are not familiar with referencing academic work should undertake the Academic Integrity Module.
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.

Attendance at classes is not compulsory but it is highly advisable that you attend as many classes as possible. It is the individual student's responsibility to ensure that they are sufficiently familiar with the unit's material. Your participation is one of the best ways of ensuring this faimiliarity and is necessary for the successful completion of your assessments.
Note - For the tutorials, marks will be allocated for attendance AND participation. Therefore, your attendance is nesessary for the tutorials activity. However, no marks will be given for attending only but should also involve class participation.
Required IT skills
Corporate Strategy and IT Governance is and advanced level unit and it is generally expected that students will have some background knowledge of IT related matters. Students should also possess the ability to use a word processor and various on-line searching tools to complete the unit assessments.
