Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Assessment items must be submitted to the assignment area in the unit's UCLearn site, relating to that piece of assessment. It is the student's responsibility to upload the correct and corresponding draft or assessment item, to the right submission section.
Late submissions will only be accepted for a limited period. If more than one late submission is made within that period, only the first late submission will be accepted for marking and may be subject to penalties as detailed in the Assessment Procedures.
Special assessment requirements
Moderation will be undertaken for all assessment items to ensure that marking is fair and consistent. Moderation will take place in line with the faculty of health guidelines and the University assessment procedures document https://www.canberra.edu.au/Policies/PolicyProcedure/Index/369
Students can apply for an extension to the submission due date for an assessment item through extenuating, evidenced circumstances (specific details are found in the Assessment Procedures).
Extensions must be applied for before the due date. Documentary evidence (e.g. medical certificate) will be expected for an extension to be granted, however this will not guarantee that the application will be successful. The Unit Convener or relevant Program Director will decide whether to grant an extension and the length of the extension.
An Assignment Extension form is available from the Student Forms page.
Late submission of assignments without an approved extension will result in a penalty of 5% reduced marks from the total available, per calendar day late. An assignment submitted over 7 days late will not be accepted.
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.
In order to get the most out of your studies, it is strongly recommended that you plan your time commitments, actively engage in class discussions (online or face-to-face) and work with your peers as part of your study. The amount of time you will need to spend on study in this unit will depend on a number of factors including your prior knowledge, learning skill level and learning style. Nevertheless, in planning your time commitments you should note that for a 3 credit point unit the total notional workload over the semester or term is assumed to be 150 hours.
Students will be expected to use the unit Canvas site on a regular basis. Students are encouraged to check the Canvas site at least twice weekly. The Canvas site is the primary point of contact and communication with the teaching team. Announcements relating to any aspect of the unit, including assessment, will be posted onto the Canvas Announcements. Students are encouraged to post questions related to the unit or content onto the Discussion Board in the first instance. Questions of a private or sensitive nature can be emailed directly to the unit convener.
Workbooks, online podcasts, resources and any formative assessments such as quizzes will be posted onto Canvas and will be found in weekly Modules. Assessment information can be found in the unit outline and on the Canvas site. Student will be required to upload assessments directly to Canvas.
Inclusion and engagement
It is strongly recommended that students who need assistance in undertaking the unit because of disability or an ongoing health condition register with the Inclusion and Engagement Office as soon as possible so that reasonable adjustment arrangements can be made.
It is required that students participate in all unit learning opportunities in this unit. This is inclusive of all scheduled face to face seminars, workshops, and on-line activities. Assessment items are linked to the unit learning outcomes, the NMBA Registered Nurse standards for practice and professional codes. Therefore, all students are required to attend and actively participate in all learning activites scheduled for this unit.
Required IT skills
Students will need access to a computer and the internet and have skills in searching the literature. It is strongly recomended you discuss you literature searching with Library staff.
EndNote is a referencing tool, allowing users to organise bibliographic references and use them in MS Word documents. If you are unfamiliar with Endnote it is recommended that you seek assistance with bibliographic management. This help can be accessed from the liaison librarian.
No costs are anticipated. Please discuss this with the unit convenor as necessary
Work placement, internships or practicums

Returning Graded Assignments: Every effort will be made by the Unit Convenor to return graded Assessment Activities within 3 weeks of the due date. Submissions received after the due date will ordinarily take longer to grade, dependent upon the workload of the Unit Convenor.
Feedback: Receiving feedback is an important aspect of learning. Students should ensure that they read all feedback provided by the Unit Convenor, prior to submitting subsequent Assessment Activities. If a student does not understand the feedback they have received, please contact the Unit Convenor for clarification.
Giving feedback is also an important aspect of this Unit. The Unit Convenor welcomes constructive feedback as a means of improving the way in which the Unit is taught.
