Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
Students will be notified if they have failed a piece of assessment and given written feedback explaining evaluation of their work against the assessment marking guide. Students may elect to resubmit the assessment within 7 calender days of notification of the failing grade. No further tutoring by staff will be available. Resubmitted work will be given a maximum of a passing grade only if it meets stated assessment criteria.
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.
You are STRONGLY encouraged to attend all classes. Please advise, before class, if you are unable to attend.
Required IT skills
This unit assumes high level computer literacy in a range of design software such as Photoshop, In Design, SketchUp, AutoCAD and their equivalent.
Printing and model costs are variable.
Work placement, internships or practicums
Announcements made during tutorials, 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 made 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 are 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.
Courtesy in Tutorials/Studios
All mobile phones are to be switched to silent mode during class.
The following additional Discipline specific regulations and procedures are designed to ensure equity for students in the submission, feedback and assessment of projects.
- Submission requirements and protocols
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 Moodle 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.
- Late Submissions will not be accepted
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 10% 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.
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 at the due date, students are encouraged to submit their work at the stage they are up to.
- Feedback and grades
Unless otherwise advised, all assessment feedback and grades will be posted on the units Moodle site.
