Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Late assignments (that is, assignments submitted after an agreed due date) will be marked on a pass/fail basis only, and will not receive feedback. Assessment items submitted more than one week late without prior arrangement (see extensions, below) will be deemed to have not been submitted, and a fail grade of not complete (NC) will be entered for that assessment item.
Students may apply for extensions to assessment items up to three days before to the due date of the assessment item. Extension applications must be made to the unit convenor (not your tutor) by email sent via your student email account. If it is not sent from your student email account it may be ignored. Extension applications submitted less than three days before the due date of the assessment item will be refused.
The extension application email should contain:
a subject line beginning with the words "extension request";
your name, id number, the assessment item and your tutorial;
a clear and concise explanation of the reason that the extension is required, and why you feel that obtaining the extension would allow you to submit on time;
a proposed new submission date;
copies of any supporting evidence (medical certificates, letters from employers, and so on); and,
evidence of any work completed on the assignment to date, if possible.
Your lecturer will endeavour to respond to extension requests within 48 hours of receiving the email. Extensions are given at the discretion of the lecturer and decisions will be based on the merits of each case. Early applications, those that request shorter time periods, and those which can demonstrate progression towards the assessment item will be looked upon more favourably than late applications or those with little or no evidence of engagement with the material. Attendance and evidence of engagement with the unit may also factor into the decision to grant an extension.
Extension decisions are final and may not be appealed. Students should not assume that an extension will always be granted, and until permission is granted, should assume they must meet the original deadline (or accept the late submission penalties as described above).
Resubmission of failed assessment items will be possible at the discretion of the lecturer. In these cases, students should provide a clear explanation of why they failed and what they can do to address this in a resubmitted assignment. The point here is that we want students to be able to demonstrate that they have met or exceeded the assessment criteria and hence the learning outcomes of the unit.
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
The Digital Audio Workstation software has a complex Graphical User Interface (GUI) and a Mouse driven interface.
You are required to back up your own work, and to take responsibility for saving versions of your project at important stages.
Loss of work due to lack of backups will not be grounds for extension.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Asessements simulate industry work practice.
