Submission of assessment items
Use of text matching software
In each assessment task, an ungraded pass is achieved by demonstrating competency overall through a passing grade. Students must demonstrate an appropriate standard across all task requirements. If a student has passed assessment task requirements overall but is marked as just below competency standards on some criteria, they will have the opportunity to address these criteria through one resubmission to demonstrate competency at appropriate standard. Unit convenors (or markers) will provide specific feedback in these circumstances to inform the student of the issues and criterion to be addressed. However, if the assignment still does not meet appropriate competency standards following resubmission, a fail grade will be applied. If a student has not passed the assessment task requirements overall in the first submission, there will be no option to resubmit and a fail grade will be applied.
Students must submit/attempt all assignments to be eligible to pass the unit, and must achieve an ungraded pass in all assessment tasks in a given unit to achieve an ungraded pass for the unit.
It is expected that all students will attend all workshops. Student should familiarise themselves with attendance rules in the Master of Clinical Psychology Program. If you cannot attend a workshop, you are encouraged to discuss this absence with your unit convener in advance. Students must provide documentation for any absences, and if accepted by the unit convenor, provide a 1000 word summary on the topic/s missed (due by end of semester) in order to demonstrate competency. Students cannot miss more than one full day (or two three-hour workshops) in a unit or they will fail the unit. Material will not be repeated outside workshop time for those who miss a workshop with an approved absence. Delivery of material discussed in workshops will be assumed to be known by all, even those who do not attend. Please note that you may fail the unit if you miss any workshops without documentation given the unit is competency based, and students cannot miss mandatory workshops (outlined below). Students are also expected to attend workshops on time and work effectively with others.
Please note that the cognitive assessment workshops and the half-day workshop on emotional and psychological abuse of children (presented by guest Phil Watts) in this unit require mandatory attendance. Students cannot miss mandatory workshops, and if they are absent for these workshops they will receive a fail grade for the unit or should consider a late withdrawal if there are extenuating circumstances. If a student has appropriate documentation supporting an absence under exceptional circumstances on the day of a mandatory workshop, students may be given the option to attend the workshop when it is next delivered in the course (and receive a WHE grade until such time if approved by the ADE and meeting all other pass requirements for the unit) or complete an equivalent workshop approved by the unit convenor at the student's own expense (please note documentation will be required as proof of completion). Students should also note that absences may impact course progression.
Required IT skills
No special IT skills are required for this unit, although it is expected that all students will have basic word-processing skills and that all assignments will be typed using a word processor. If you are unfamiliar with searching specialist databases for accessing Psychology journals, please see the University library site for details of training sessions: http://www.canberra.edu.au/library/research-gateway/research-skills-training
Work placement, internships or practicums
As a unit attached to a professional practice training program, this unit requires strict adherence to professional practice principles and ethics. Client patient confidentiality must always be maintained (see APS Code of Ethics), including for assessment items such as case discussions and reports or essays.
Provision of information to the group: Please note that announcements made at lectures are deemed to be made to the whole group. Important announcements re changes will also be made via Moodle.
Submission of assignments: To ensure accurate record keeping, the Academic Board has recommended that, whenever possible, all assessment items be submitted online via the unit Canvas site. Where this is not possible, exceptions may be sought from the Faculty ADE
In accordance with University policy (3.15 in Assessment Procedures), moderation is required to ensure consistency in standards of marking in a unit. The Master of Clinical Psychology program and units undertake moderation in a number of domains, specifically through review of unit outlines and unit content, assessment item details and marking guides, and in marking assignments. All assessment pieces or marks resulting in a fail grade will be moderated by another member of the clinical team, as well as a random selection of assignments covering a range of participants in the unit. This process ensures that marking across the program is consistent. All units are subjected to moderation at the Discipline level at the conclusion of each teaching period.
