Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
To pass the unit, students must attain at least 50 marks overall.
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.
All lectures will be provided as recordings only for this unit - there will be no face-to-face lectures delivered this semester.
Students are strongly encouraged to attend all face-to-face tutorials. Tutorial activities will be posted on Canvas but tutorials will not be recorded. Students are responsible for keeping up to date with any missed classes.
Students are expected to check the Canvas site regularly for updates and announcements. Students should also regularly check their student email.
