Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
The late penalties for Assessments are as per the University policies.
Special assessment requirements
To Pass the Unit, you will need to satisfy the following conditions:
- Sit for all Quizzes, do the ST1 Capstone Project and submit assignment and all components of ST1 Capstone Project, including report, demonstration, presentation and interview/viva-voce, and have no outstanding resubmissions by Friday of week 12.
- In the case of illness, misadventure or unavoidable commitments, students should contact the Unit Convener as soon as possible. (Well in advance if possible).
Once above conditions have been satisfied, grades will be awarded as per the following table:
Formula for Grade Calculation
Total Mark ≥ 85 AND ST1 Capstone Project Mark ≥ 50
Total Mark ≥ 75 AND ST1 Capstone Project Mark ≥ 50
Total Mark ≥ 65 AND ST1 Capstone Project Mark ≥ 50
Total Mark ≥ 50 AND ST1 Capstone Project Mark ≥ 50
Total Mark < 50 OR ST1 Capstone Project Mark < 50
- The student final grade is the sum of all the assesment items : Quiz 1, Quiz2, Quiz 3, Quiz 4, ST1 Assignment and ST1 Capstone Project
- The unit convenor reserves the right to question students on any of their submitted work for moderation and academic integrity purposes, which may result in an adjustment to the marks awarded for a specific task.
- Please note that Suspected academic misconduct will be referred to an appropriate prescribed authority (such as the ADE) under the University of Canberra (Student Conduct) Rules 2023 for all assessment activities in this 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.
|Weekly lecture: 2 hours/week, 12 times||24|
|Weekly tute/lab/: 1 hour preparation + 1 hour attendance per tute/lab, 11 times||22|
|ST1 Capstone Project||50|
Your participation in lectures, workshop and tutorial and lab activities will enhance your understanding of the unit content and therefore the quality of your assessment responses. Lack of participation may result in your inability to satisfactorily complete assessment items.
