Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Any assessment item submitted WITHOUT the specified information on the first page will be returned to the student and not marked until this requirement is met. Late penalties will be applied (see below).
Special assessment requirements
In specific circumstances a student can apply to undertake a deferred examination in the Deferred and Supplementary Examinations period. Refer to the Student Services Deferred Exams guidelines at http://www.canberra.edu.au/student-services/examinations/alternative-exams and the University of Canberra Deferred Examination Policy at https://guard.canberra.edu.au/policy/policy.php?pol_id=3176
Late submission penalty policy for the Faculty of Health
All assessments should be submitted by the specified due date and time in the Unit Outline. Any submissions received after the due date and time without an approved formal extension will undergo a mark adjustment.
In extenuating circumstances, a late submission may be considered without a mark adjustment on production of supporting documentation and at the discretion of the Unit Convenor (i.e. the Unit Convenor agrees to an extension to the deadline for submission).
The following conditions will apply to late submissions without an approved extension:
· Mark adjustment: 10% of the maximum mark available for the assessment task will be deducted for each day late up until five days late. For example an essay awarded 60% (60/100) submitted 2 days late will receive a mark adjustment of 10% per day, therefore, the adjusted maximum mark for that item will be 40% (40/100).
· Similarly, if the weighting is used then a piece of work worth 50% of the unit which received 30/50 would be reduced by 5 marks per day (i.e. 10% of 50) and would therefore receive a maximum adjusted mark of 20/50 if late by two days.
· Submissions received more than 5 days after the prescribed date and time will not be accepted for marking, a mark of zero (0) will be awarded for the item.
· For the purposes of these penalties, all days of the week count, including weekends and public holidays, even when the University may be closed.
· The minimum possible mark for late submission is zero.
· For clarification, one (1) minute past the specified due date and time is considered a late submission.
It is students' responsibility to be familiar with the electronic submission process (e.g., the use of MOODLE and URKUND). Students are reminded to ensure they plan well enabling adequate time to submit assessments prior to the deadline, in order to avoid a mark adjustment.
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.
Students are expected to attend all lectures and practical/tutorial sessions. It is expected that students unable to fulfil these participation requirements will inform the Unit Convenor as soon as practical, by telephone or email. If attendance requirements cannot be regularly satisfied (e.g. timetable clash) it may be recommended that you schedule this unit for a future semester. Consideration will be given for illness; however evidence such as a medical certificate will be required. Contact details for the Unit Convenor are given in Section 1.
Required IT skills
Students should be conversant with searching for and accessing information via electronic means; the use of Moodle; and word processing, spreadsheet and presentation software.
The following costs are expected for this unit:
- Self-printing of electronically provided material;
- Costs for internet access if required outside the UC campus
Work placement, internships or practicums
This Unit does NOT contain any Work Integrated Learning (WIL) activities (clinical placements and externships).
Students are expected to participate in all laboratory/tutorial classes. If any student has reason to believe that they will be unable to participate fully in any of the labs, please confer with the unit convenor prior to the laboratory commencing.
Always keep a disk and / or hard copy of your assignments. In the rare instance that your original goes astray, you will have a copy. Loss of data prior to submission of the literature review and written report for the lab assessment will not be accepted and penalties outlined in 5c will apply.
