Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Both hard copies and an electronic copies of the essay and literature review must be submitted, the former to the tutor's pigeon hole in Bldg 20, and the latter via the relevant UCLearn drop box.
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.
There is an expectation that students will attend and participate in all tutorials, as such participation is an important and significant component of the learning design. From our experience, there is a significant link between a student's attendance/ participation, and the quality of their learning outcomes demonstrated in submitted assessment items.
Required IT skills
Students are expected to be competent in using UCLearn, have a basic level of word processing competency and be able to present their essay in electronic and paper formats, and be proficient at using the internet and library electronic databases for research purposes.
