Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
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.
This is a self-paced research unit. In addition to voluntary online drop-in sessions scheduled twice per week, students can arrange additional consultations by appointment as required.
Required IT skills
Your choice of research activities and report preparation may involve the use of software tools such as Word, Excel, NVivo, SPSS, and Endnote as required by your individual research designs.
