Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
The assessment items reflect a logical progression commencing with the initial project proposal, a work-in-progress update report, through to the completion of the final seminar and written final report. Each project is different, for example, some projects may be industry-based and some may be research-based. The student and supervisor work closely together. This unit is a final year unit that deploys knowledge and skills that students have developed in earlier units. Students should keep a copy of all assessment items that are submitted.
There is no final examination in this unit.
Special assessment requirements
In order to gain a pass grade in this unit, the student must:
- Meet regularly with your supervisor, and
- Submit every item of assessment, and
- Attend the required presentations, and
- Attain a total of at least 50% overall.
The Unit Convenor and/or supervisors reserve the right to question students orally on any of their assessment submissions.
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.
All work quoted from other written sources should be appropriately referenced using the “author-date” (Harvard) style. This style is described in detail (including electronic sources) in the Citation Guide available at http://canberra.libguides.com/referencing
While there are few formal class times scheduled for this unit, students are required to regularly meet with their supervisors to discuss their progress from the start of the project until the final project reports are submitted. The times for regular meetings are arranged by students with their supervisors as deemed necessary.
If students fail to attend organised sessions where they are required to present or otherwise contribute to assessable work, then they risk failing the unit.
Required IT skills
This is to be negotiated between the supervisors, students and the Unit Convenor on a case-by case basis depending on the specific project.
No additional costs will be incurred by students undertaking this unit apart from the normal costs of being a university student.
Work placement, internships or practicums
This is a WIL-type unit with projects that may be industry or research-based linking practice and theory.
Sources of other information will be provided by supervisors. Emails sent to the Unit Convenor or project supervisor do not have the effect of transferring responsibility for further action from the student.
Announcements are made throughout the unit, typically to clarify requirements for assignments. Any such announcements will be made using your student email account and placed on the unit web site. Such announcements are deemed, within two working days, to be made to the whole group. Announcements made at an organised session are deemed to be made to the whole group.
