Extensions & Late submissions
NOTE 1: The late penalties for Assignment 1 vary from those normally applied by the university - specifically some late re-submissions are permitted, see the relevent assignment documentation for details.
NOTE2: If the student passes the exam their mark for the unit will be the sum of all the assesment items Assignment 1, Quiz 1, Quiz2, Assignment 2, Lab Journal and Final Exam.
NOTE3: If the student fails the exam, their final grade will be NX (Fail), regardless of the sum total of all assessment items. This means you need to pass the exam to pass the unit.
NOTE4: The lecturer/moderator reserves the right to take an oral exam to assess the original contribution in the work submitted for the assessment.
NOTE5: If a students behaviour could possibly be interpreted as plagiarism, but there is some doubt, they will be advised by the unit convener to modify their behaviour.
NOTE6: If the lecturer feels a student is guilty of deliberate unambigous plagarism, the students details and the plagarism details will be passed to the ADE (Associate Dean Education) for investigation. Students are refered the the university policy on plagarism in this case..
Late submission of assignments:
2) Late submission of the Assignments and reports will be subject to the usual university late submission policy.
Special assessment requirements
In order to pass this unit, students need to pass the final exam.
If you fail the final exam, your mark for this unit will be your final exam mark converted to a percentage and you will fail the unit.
Supplementary assessment is not offered in this unit unless required by the relevant university 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.
