Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
In addition to formal presentation, all assessment items will be submitted online via the Unit Canvas site. The first page of each assessment submission should include the following information:
Word Count (if applicable):
REFER TO 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.
Additional Information on Assessment
All assessments must be submitted at the due time and date and in the form and manner stated in the assessment outline.
Only in exceptional circumstances as stated in UC policy, will applications for an extension be considered. An extension needs to be applied for in writing and in advance of the submission date. The application must specify the length of the extension being sought and provide documentation such as counselling or medical certificates that cover this period. Extensions can only be given for the period stated in the documentation submitted. Counselling certificates are not a guarantee of an extension.
A late submission will attract a penalty of 5% for the first day, then an additional 5% per day for days 2 to 6. A weekend does not count for the purpose of this policy. On the 6th day the student will receive a fail grade.
All assessments must be submitted on time in order to pass the unit.
Unless otherwise stated in the Unit outline. Re-submissions for failed work will not be accepted.
This assessment policy is designed to be fair to all students. Adherence to deadlines is essential in the design professions.
Students should aim to complete all work to a high standard. In the event that the assessment is incomplete
It is UC policy that students submit ALL written work on Canvas in the appropriate assignment dropbox for this unit. You should ensure that your name, student number, and unit name is provided on the front cover and as a running head on each page.
It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the correct version of any given assignment is submitted by the due date and time as indicated in the unit's Canvas site and unit outline.
CD/DVD/USB/emailed assignment submissions will not be accepted. Submissions that do not meet the specified content, format or other requirements may be penalised through a reduction in marks.
Where students are required to submit models, drawings, posters or other physical artefacts that cannot be submitted electronically, students must create an electronic record (digital image, scanned copy, PDF version, or video) of the artefact and submit this in the appropriate assignment dropbox as evidence of their completed and on time submission.
Students will not be required to submit preparatory field notes, visual journals or design studio portfolios, unless specifically required as part of the unit assessment tasks. Students may be asked to provide evidence of these in class at the request of the unit tutor or unit convenor.
To achieve high quality design work, students are encouraged and expected to attend at least 8 out of 12 weekly reviews.
Inclusion and engagement
circumstances should inform their Unit Convener or Inclusion and Welfare as soon as possible so the necessary arrangements can be made.
To achieve high-quality design work, students are encouraged and expected to attend at least 8 out of 12 weekly reviews.
Required IT skills
As necessary to facilitate architectural studio submission and presentation, and use the unit to learn on line 'Canvas' site.
Materials and equipment needed to undertake the projects, such as drawing and model making materials, and costs associated with any site visits, are generally the responsibility of each individual student. This could be in the order of $300 per semester.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Work-integrated-learning (WIL) is integrated into this unit through linkage and support with professional, industry, or government partners/s to undertake a specific project in design or research. The unit provides students with an opportunity to apply theory to practice and to further develop the skills and knowledge they have gained as part of their course.
Additional information, including assignment and submission requirements, will be provided in separate handouts. Reading and complying with this information and instruction is a requirement for students enrolled in this unit.
Announcements made during studios, seminars, or lectures, or sent to your University of Canberra student email address, will be deemed to have been made to the whole group. Students are responsible for regularly checking their UC student email.
Consultation with Staff
Contact with staff should generally be within the allocated class times. Consultation outside of these hours shall be by prior appointment, and in addition to, not in lieu of, the scheduled class time. Students who fail to attend classes, and who do not have a Medical or Counsellor's Certificate or other genuine reason for missing classes, should not expect additional tutorial or consultation time.
Please note: staff is not able to return calls to long-distance or mobile telephone numbers after normal hours or on weekends or holidays. Emails are normally not checked or answered at nights, on weekends, or on public holidays.
Teaching staff (and particularly sessional staff) may not be able to attend to phone calls or reply to emails immediately. Please ensure any urgent matters are brought to their attention within the studio session or request assistance in notifying the Convener through the Administrative Assistant for the Course.
Due to the requirements of professional accreditation, samples of student work will be retained and stored at the School for periods of up to three years. Where possible, each student should make a copy of any assignment (prior to submission) as that work may be retained and inaccessible thereafter.
Late Collection of Assignments
Architects, and architecture students, are expected to take responsibility for their work. In the context of the design studios, this is considered to include both submitting the work on time, and collecting it following assessment. Collection times will be advised for submissions where appropriate. Where a project/assignment is not collected by that time, the project is subject to a 5% grade penalty. The project may be discarded without further notice. This penalty will not apply when prior arrangements have been made with the Unit Convener, or when the work is being retained, such as for accreditation.
End of Semester Clean Up
Studios are to be cleared of work and generally cleaned up at the end of each semester. Projects not removed by the advertised date may be discarded without further notice.
