Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
All assessment items (except the actual group presentation, the Resume and 5 Year Plan) will be submitted online via the unit Canvas site. The Resume and 5 Year Plan are to be submitted to Mahara ePortfolio.
Special assessment requirements
PLEASE NOTE: All assignments must be completed. In order to obtain a Pass grade in this unit you must gain a total overall mark of 50%; and have no outstanding assessment.
In order to obtain higher grades in this unit you must achieve the following:
- 65 - 74% for CR
- 75 - 84% for DI
- 85% and above for HD
UC College students in their last semester of study may be eligible to re-sit a supplementary exam or assessment to gain a pass grade. Refer to the UCC student handbook for more information.
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.
Further assessment information and Grade descriptions
All assignments are required to be submitted by the due date. If, for any reason, you are unable to do an assignment by the due date you must submit, to the lecturer or your tutor, a request for an extension in writing before the due date (except in special cases considered reasonable to the tutor). The request must set out, in detail, the genuine and exceptional reason for requesting the extension. If there is a medical reason for the extension request it must be accompanied by a medical certificate (see below).
Medical certificates. Your medical certificate must clearly state:
- That you were unfit to complete the assignment;
- The date of the medical consultation;
- The period during which you were/are/will be unfit; and
- The severity of your illness.
However, as an integral part of the learning theory that underpins this unit, students may be asked to re-submit their written assignments if the lecturer and /or tutor decide that the quality of work submitted is not at a reasonable standard that would, as a minimum, gain a Pass level grade. This request will be given in close consultation with the student. There will be no re-submissions after week 12 of the Semester. Note that a re-submitted assignment can only achieve a Pass level or Fail.
Review of teaching materials plus tutorial preparation
Weekly tutorials: 2 hours per week x 11 weeks
Students are required to attend all classes. There is a direct correlation between success in this unit and class attendance. As a guideline students with less than 80% attendance are placing their studies at risk due to Visa requirements. Students with poor attendance will find it difficult to keep up with the workload.
Your participation in both class and online activities will enhance your understanding of the unit content and therefore the quality of your assessment responses. Lack of participation may result in your inability to satisfactorily pass assessment items.
Required IT skills
General computing skills.
