Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Late submission of assignments
Late submission of assignments without an approved extension will result in the assignment not being marked and zero being recorded for that particular assignment.
In extenuating circumstances a late submission may be considered upon the production of supporting documentation and at the discretion of the unit convener.
Extensions: Extensions must be applied for before the due date.
Students can apply for an extension to the due date for submission of an assessment item on the grounds of illness or other unavoidable and verifiable personal circumstances. Documentary evidence will be expected in order that an extension be granted.
It should be noted that such documentation will be considered but will not guarantee that the application will be successful. The Unit Convenor will decide whether to grant an extension and the length of the extension.
Special assessment requirements
Normally an aggregate mark of 50% is required to pass the unit.
The final grade for the subject is then determined according to the following table:
85 <= Final mark <= 100
Final grade = HD
75 <= Final mark < 85
Final grade = DI
65 <= Final mark < 75
Final grade = CR
50 <= Final mark < 65
Final grade = P
0 <= Final mark < 50
a final grade (NX, NC, or NN)
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.
A student spends a 120-hours placement in the intern hosting organisation and 30-hours on the assessment items.
A 120-hours placement in the intern hosting organisation is compulsory.
Required IT skills
varies depending on the nature of intern positions
Work placement, internships or practicums
This unit involves ICT practice in workplaces, and therefore, additional student responsibilities are required in addition to those described in this section. Work-place learning requires strict adherence to professional practice principles and ethics. The professional nature of this unit also requires 100% participation at all learning activities for the successful completion of this unit (also see section 6c). If attendance requirements cannot be satisfied, it is recommended that you meet with your Unit Convener to schedule this unit for a future semester.
