Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
All assessable items must be submitted or performed. Failure to do so will result in an NC (Fail) grade being awarded for the unit.
Extensions will only be granted for a valid reason such as illness. A medical certificate or other appropriate documentation must accompany requests for extensions. Lack of personal organisation is not considered to be a valid reason for an extension.
See the UC Supplementary Assessment Policy
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.
Inclusion and engagement
Students who need assistance in undertaking the unit, because of disability or other circumstance, should inform their unit convener as soon as possible, so that necessary arrangements can be made.
Attendance at lectures and participation in tutorials is highly recommended, given the unfamiliarity of the material to most students, but not assessed.
Required IT skills
General computing skills are required. This includes being able to access, download and post items on/from the Canvas site.
Work placement, internships or practicums
In this unit you have the opportunity to gain verbal feedback on your research proposal from your tutor in a one-on-one appointment in week 5. These appointments while not directly contributing to your final mark will help you forumlate your Research Proposal and later your Resarch Report. Thus taking advantage of this appointment time will enable you to gain important feedback to: improve your understanding about social movements; improve the design and execution of your research project; and, if the feedback is appropriately acted on, to maximise your grades. I highly recommend you take up this offer.
