Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
Normally an aggregate mark of 50% is required to pass the unit. The aggregate mark is the weighted total T of all assessment marks. Final grades are based on the total T:
P (50% ≤ T < 65%), CR (65% ≤ T < 75%), DI (75% ≤ T < 85%), HD (≥ 85% ).
The unit convener reserves the right to question students orally on any of their submitted work. Students are required to develop and maintain an active e-Portfolio related to the project using the Mahara e-Portfolio System.
Students need to book for an oral presentation during Week 12, the available dates and times will be communicated during the course of the Semester.
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.
Following is an approximate breakdown of the workload for the unit:
|Supervisor consultation and project meetings
|for 12 weeks
|Research, reflection and planning including attending lectures, guest lectures and presentations
|for 13 weeks
|Project implementation, e-Portfolio & report writing
|for 13 weeks
|The oral presentation including preparation and delivery
|leading up to week 12
|Unit study load for the whole semester
On campus participation is required as arranged with the project supervisor/s and/or the project team.
Required IT skills
