Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions

Special assessment requirements
Students need to have completed all other assessment items relating to this Unit before they are able to sit the final examination
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 studying online must ensure they are motivated to keep up with the lectures and readings and ensure all assignments are completed and submitted on time. The lecturer will not follow up with students when work is not submitted. Failure to complete all assessment items by the end of the semester will lead to a Grade of NC irrespective of the marks obtained on the assessment items completed. Late submissions may be graded but with a late penalty (See Special Conditions).
Required IT skills
Students are expected to have sufficient IT skills to undertake a fully on-line unit. This includes being able to access the Unit's moodle site, being able to access an e book (if this is preferred by the student in lieu of a hard copy text), being able to research on-line using university data bases, being able to prepare their assignments and lodge them on line in the drop boxes provided and able to sit an on-line examination.
