Special assessment requirements
Please note that you are required to submit your written assignments online through Canvas site, and your work should be submitted to URKUND to check for text matching. Please bear in mind that I don't give a second chance to anybody with high URKUND report and the reports will be sent directly to Associate Dean of Education Office for further investigation. As a student from University of Canberra you are responsible to familiarize yourself with UC policies about misconduct including plagiarism.
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.
It is essential that students use the textbook and the online content provided on the Canvas site for this unit to do their assignments, and to take their online quizzes, as well as their final exam.
