Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
A student who has extenuating circumstances and is unable to meet the assessment deadline can apply for an extension to the deadline to the relevant unit convener. Students must apply for an extension within a reasonable time frame of the deadline and must include the relevant documentary evidence according to the category of extenuating circumstance under which they are applying. Where an extension for extenuating circumstances has not been approved and a student submits an assessment task late, the student will receive a reduction of 5 percent per day from the total mark available for that assessment item for each day the assignment is late (up to seven days, after which the student will receive zero marks for the assignment).
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 expected to participate in lectures, tutorials, group work and site visits to achieve the learning outcomes set out above. These include discussions, presentations and group activities which are designed to achieve the learning outcomes of this unit.
Students are expected to regularly check their Moodle site announcements and university email for information about readings, session updates and opportunities relevant to the unit.
Required IT skills
Students are expected to be confident users of online technologies.
