Moderation of Assessments
Please note that all assignments will be moderated according to the Faculty of Health moderation guidelines. A copy of the moderation guidelines can be found on the CANVAS site for this unit.
Special assessment requirements
Students are required to pass each assessment item in order to pass the unit. Therefore, to pass this unit, students must:
- Attempt all assessment items
- Attain at least 50% of the marks for the final examination (both parts combined), and
- Attain at least 50% of the marks allocated to the assignments.
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.
Inclusion and engagement
Students are strongly encouraged to attend all lectures and tutorials for pedagogical reasons unless they have a valid reason for non-attendance (e.g. illness) or permission from the Unit Convener.
Required IT skills
Students are expected to be familiar with the use of diet analysis software (i.e. Foodworks). This can be accessed free of charge from various computer labs at the University of Canberra (Bruce campus).
Students will need a non-programmable calculator.
