Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Missed or Deferred Assessments/Extension Requsts
As stated in University Policy, you must request approval from the Unit Convenor to seek an extension or sit a deferred assessment. You must apply for an assessment extension/deferral within a reasonable timeframe (usually within three days of the missed assessment). Your application must include the relevant documentary evidence according to the category of extenuating circumstance under which you are applying (i.e., a medical certificate, death notice).
You are not permitted to defer a deferred assessment. A student who does not attempt a deferred assessment will receive a grade of zero for that /task.
For further information regarding accepted extenuating circumstances and documentary evidence required, please see Assessment Procedures (https://www.canberra.edu.au/Policies/PolicyProcedure/Index/1607).
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.
Required IT skills
It is expected that students will possess UC IT entry skills. Students are expected to use the Canvas site for this unit to access the required materials.
