Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
Extension Procedure: Nursing
The onus rests on the student to comply with timelines for completing and submitting assessments on time.
This is part of the good management and performance skill we are seeking to develop in students through the educational process.
Academic staff have a responsibility to ensure equity and fairness to all students who submit their assessments on time.
For these reasons, you need to establish genuine circumstances for an extension to be granted. You will need to supply documentary evidence to establish the genuine nature of your circumstances.
Please note; Extensions more of 7 days will not generally be granted unless there are extenuating circumstances.
Process for applying for an extension
Students are advised to liaise directly with their Unit Convenor for requests for extensions.
Requests for extensions should be emailed to the Unit Convenor or approved delegate, although there may be circumstances where Inclusion and Engagement will liaise on behalf of the student.
Requests for extension should be made using the Assignment Extension Application Form. The application must be made at least 5 days prior to the submission date.
The Unit Convenor or Approved Delegate will inform the student of the outcome of their request as per Faculty procedures.
Where the Unit Convenor or Delegate does not approve the assingment extension request, the student may seek consultation with Inclusion & Engagement. If considcertd appropriate, Inclusion and Engagement will liaise with the relavant academic staff member, following consultation with the student.
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
Work placement, internships or practicums
Returning Graded Assignments:
Every effort will be made by the Unit Convenor to return graded assessments within 3 weeks of the due date.
Please note, students who are given an extension CANNOT expect that their work will be assessed within the conventional 3 weeks timeframe.
