Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Approval of extenuating circumstances for late submission of assignments will be dependent upon the production of supporting documentation and at the discretion of the unit convener.
Unless supported by Inclusion & Welfare, extensions will not be granted for quizzes. A medical certificate will only be considered for quizzes if: a) it covers the entire period the quiz was open; and b) if the extension request happens before the answers to the quizzes have been published. Please consult the unit website to see the dates when the answers will be published.
No other forms of submission other than the indicated in each assessment item will be accepted. Submissions via email will be ignored. If a student chooses to submit his/her assignment via the Internet off the campus, it is the student's responsibility to guarantee the accessibility of the Internet. Not being able to access to the Internet at a location which is off campus is not an excuse for extension.
Students will be asked to confirm the following online declaration at the point of submission. I certify that:
1. The attached assignment is my own work and no part of this work has been written for me by any other person except where such collaboration has been authorised by the lecturer/s concerned;
2. Material drawn from other sources has been fully acknowledged as to author/creator, source and other bibliographic details according to unit-specific requirements for referencing; and
3. No part of this work has been submitted for assessment in any other unit in this or another Faculty except where authorised by the lecturer/s concerned.
Special assessment requirements
OVERALL MARK & REQUIREMENTS TO PASS THE UNIT
Each assessment item will be given a grade and an associated percentage mark. The marks will be totaled to produce an overall coursework mark.
The Overall Mark will be calculated as follows:
Overall Mark =
Final Assignment (Take-Home Assignment) (50%) +
Mid-term Assessment (25%) +
Quizzes (15%) +
AWS participation/Tutorials (10%)
Conditions to PASS the unit:
1. Students need to obtain at least 50% in the Overall Mark, calculated as described above;
2. Students need to satisfy one of the following conditions:
a. Students need to obtain at least 50% in the Final assignment (Take-Home Assignment) mark;
b. Students need to obtain at least 40% in the Final assignment (Take-Home Assignment) AND at least 50% in all the other assessment items combined.
Satisfying only conditions 1 or 2 will not be enough to pass the unit.
Once a student has met the conditions for a Pass, higher grades will be awarded on the basis of the highest category shown below, in which your marks fit.
85 <= Final mark <= 100
Final grade = HD
75 <= Final mark < 85
Final grade = DI
65 <= Final mark < 75
Final grade = CR
50 <= Final mark < 65
Final grade = P
0 <= Final mark < 50
Final grade = FAIL (NX, NS, NC or NN)
The unit convener reserves the right to question students orally on any of their submitted work.
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 lectures: 2 hours/week, 12 times
Weekly tutorial classes (1 hour) and online engagement: 2 hours/week, 11 times
Weekly study commitment: 3 hours/week, 12 times
Term Assignment: 38 hours
Assessment preparation and submission: 30 hours
Your participation in both class and online 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 pass assessment items.
Your attendance and particiaption in tutorials and labs is mandatory and will be marked.
Required IT skills
IT skills commensurate with advanced study of information technology are assumed.
