Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
When submission of drafts is provided, note that these are not assessed. This option would only be provided to give information from text similarity checking software.
Special assessment requirements
All assessment components must be submitted for evaluation in order to be eligible to pass the unit.
The final mark is determined by adding all assessment marks together taking into account their weights – each individual assessment item does not need to be passed in order to pass the unit. Late penalties will be applied to the assessment items for those students without an approved extension.
Students are expected to attend, or access online, all lectures. Students can choose to attend face to face tutorials or participate in the equivalent online learning environment. Before the start of the unit, student need to watch the online introductory video that will be available on Canvas at the start of the semester.
Required IT skills
Students should have a basic understanding of the Jamovi software for prerequisite requirements. It is also expected that all students will have basic word-processing skills. If you are unfamiliar with searching specialist databases for accessing Psychology Journals please see the UC library site for details of training sessions.
There are no costs required for this unit. Students may purchase the recommended texts if they wish, but are not required to. Students may download for free the Jamovi software or choose to access the program on campus (24/7 access is provided).
Work placement, internships or practicums
Important: Note that the unit convenor aims to answer questions within 2 working days. This has important implications for deadlines: if you ask a question 1 day, or 1 hour before the deadline, you may not get an answer before the passing of the deadline. Also, quizzes have a due date in the weekend, so any questions need to be asked by around 6pm on Wednesday in order to receive an answer before the due date. It is your own responsibility to complete the assessments on time, taking into account that you may run into problems. So be prepared and start on time.
