Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
In order to pass this unit, students have to obtain a mark of 50% or greater for the assessment as a whole, and 50% or greater for the final examination. Higher grades will be awarded on the basis of the total mark being ≥ 65% for a credit, ≥ 75% for a distinction and ≥ 85% for a high distinction. Some scaling of marks and academic judgement may be applied to determine students' final grades - in this process no student will be disadvantaged.
In the case of any assignment that places you in jeopardy of a Fail in the whole unit, appropriate moderation procedures will be used.
If there is any doubt with regard to the requirements of any particular assignments or assessment procedure, the onus for clarifying the issue rests with the student who should contact the unit convener about the matter.
All work quoted from any source should be appropriately referenced using the "Harvard" referencing style as described in the link below (note that there are multiple version of the Harvard referencing style, and you should use the one described here).
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.
Undergraduate students are expected to attend all lectures to gain an adequate understanding of challenging and complex concepts associated with this unit.
