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.
The unit requires student engagement in all in-class (or online) discussions to broaden their understanding.
Active participation in workshops positively impacts student performance.
Assessment-3 requires particpation in assessment related in-class and group activities.
Required IT skills
Ability to use search engines and journal data bases. Assistance is available in the library, and students will be given a quick tutorial during the first tutorial.
Work placement, internships or practicums
PHASE 1: ASSESSMENT DESIGN
Assessment design and marking rubrics/guides are peer reviewed by members of the Global Studies team alongside the Unit Outline approval process. Student feedback is taken into consideration while reviewing the assessment tasks. Assessment design has taken into consideration the flexibility required in unforseen circumstances.
8766 Assessment Structure: Persuasive Essay (20%), Case Study Research (40%); Group Project (40%)
PHASE II: MARKING & GRADING
 Assessment design and marking rubrics are explained to teaching team prior to being made available to students.
 In the marking process, all Fails are double-marked by another member of the teaching team, a random sample of CR, DI, HD's is also double marked. Double-marking responsibilities are distributed across the teaching team.
 Assessment items awarded marks on the borderline between grades (eg. CR/DI) and given particular focus in this process.
 After all marking and double-marking of a given assessment item has taken place, the teaching team meets for a moderation meeting, reviewing and finalising all marks and discussing any issues that have arisen.
 Final grades and grade distribution for the unit are discussed in the final moderation meeting. A sample of work at each level is collected/identified for benchmarking purposes.
PHASE III: REVIEW & EVALUATION
Final results and grade distributions are evaluated via (1) meeting of the Global Studies/International Development course team, (2) Discipline Assessment Board, and (3) Faculty Assessment Boards.
