Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
If there is any doubt about the requirements of a particular assessment or assessment procedure, please see the Unit Convener who is here to help you. The onus for clarifying assessment issues rests with the student. All assessments must be submitted to pass the unit and students must achieve an overall mark of 50% to pass the unit. You must keep a copy of your assignments.
Students must use APA method of referencing throughout their assignments. The following useful resource on referencing is available at:
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.
Late Submission of Assignments
Requests for extensions must be made in writing to the convenor at least 24 hours prior to the due date. Lack of a valid estension may lead to a mark adjustment as per the assessment policy.

It is students’ responsibility to be familiar with the electronic submission process (e.g., the use of CANVAS and URKUND). Students are reminded to ensure they plan well enabling adequate time to submit assessments prior to the deadline, in order to avoid a mark adjustment.
Attendance at classes is compulsory in this course, as per the Bachelor of Midwifery curriculum approved by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Board. Students who do not achieve these attendance requirements may be required to submit work in lieu of missed classes or not pass the unit.
