Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
All video projects must be submitted via a playable dvd to front reception by the due date.
Special assessment requirements
(For year-long units only - when credit points are not counted until completion of the second unit. Delete for other units): Students enrolled in year-long units (consisting of a part A and part B unit code) will be allocated a continuing grade (CNTY) on completion of part A. Once the student has completed part B, the grade for part A will be updated such that the grades for the two unit codes are the same.
Refer to the UC Supplementary Assessment 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.
The amount of time you will need to spend on study in this unit will depend on a number of factors including your prior knowledge, learning skill level and learning style. Nevertheless, in planning your time commitments you should note that for a 3cp unit the total notional workload over the semester or term is assumed to be 150 hours. These hours include time spent in classes. The total workload for units of different credit point value should vary proportionally. For example, for a 6cp unit the total notional workload over a semester or term is assumed to be 300 hours.
Non participation may have a negative impact on a student's grade because they miss key learning opportunities
