Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
To pass the unit, students must:
1. submit all assessment items
2. attain at least 50% overall.
Students will not be able to resubmit assignments.
Moderation of assessment items will be conducted in accordance with the Faculty of Health moderation policy. A copy of this policy can be found on the unit Canvas site.
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.
Students are strongly encouraged to attend all lectures and tutorials. If you do not attend class, it is your responsibility to cover any missed work.
Required IT skills
Students are required to submit typed assignments in Microsoft Word. Use of dietary analysis software and online communication tools are required - students will receive instruction.
