Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
The hurdle requirement within this unit is a compulsory aspect or component of the studies that must be complied with in order for you to be eligible to receive a pass grade. Hurdle requirements vary from course to course and are identified for the specific subject in the curriculum documentation. Hurdle requirements ensure that you are engaged with the full range of learning outcomes required for successful knowledge transfer during the course. The hurdle requirements for this subject of study are:
- Students must complete and submit all pieces of assessment.
- Students must achieve at least 50% in assessments 1 and 2
- Students may not proceed to assessment 2 unless they achieve a Pass grade or higher in assessment 1.
- Students must complete the required marketing report that was started in assessment 1.
- Students must achieve a minimum of 40% mark in the final examination
- An overall ‘Pass' grade in the unit (=50%+)
Students who are unable to sit the review test due to medical or other special reasons, have produced the appropriate documentation (see 5b below), and have been approved by the unit convener, will be required to submit another piece of assessment. This assessment piece will cover the same learning outcomes as the test and will require a similar workload as the test.
Students who are unable to submit an assignment within a week of the due date, for similar reasons, will be required to submit another assignment on a topic to be selected by the unit convenor.
No assignments will be accepted for marking after the solution or marked assignments have been returned to the class.
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.
It is strongly recommended that students attend all lectures and tutorials wherever practical. The course has been designed to build student's understanding of basic concepts taught in earlier subjects and to extend that knowledge through a deeper awareness of the theory in the field of organisational change, and significantly, through practical exercises in the tutorials related to lecture content.
Required IT skills
Students will need to be able to operate basic functions within browser software (such as Firefox, Safari or Explorer) for example to download a file or operate a basic web form interface to communicate with others. Students will also be required to operate word processing software. Microsoft Word is the application provided for students on the Chadstone Campus.
