Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
To obtain an overall pass grade in this Unit, the student must:
Complete both assessments and achieve an aggregate grade of at least 50%
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.
Extensions and Moderation
Grounds for applying for an extension
The onus rests on students to comply with timelines for completing and submitting assessments, and this is part of the good management and performance skills we are seeking to develop in students through the educational process. Lecturers also have a responsibility to ensure equity and fairness to the majority of students who submit their assessments on time.
For these reasons, you need to establish genuine circumstances for an extension to be granted. You will need to supply documentary evidence to establish the genuine nature of your circumstances.
Please note: Extensions of more than 7 days will not generally be granted unless there are extenuating circumstances. See * below.
Process for applying for an extension:
Requests for extensions should be on the attached Assignment Extension Application form and submitted at least 2 days prior to the submission date.
1.Requests for an extension of up to 4 days should be sent directly to HealthAdmin: HealthAdmin@canberra.edu.au
2.Requests for an extension of more than 4 days should be sent directly to the Unit Convenor for consideration.
University of Canberra Assignment Extension Application Policy Form.
Late submission of assessments without approval:
When a student does not submit an assessment task on or before the due date and time, their mark will be reduced by five percentage points per day from the total mark available (e.g. if an assessment was submitted three days late a mark of 70% would be reduced to 55%, or put another way, if a student was awarded 21 out of 30 and submitted three days late their mark would be reduced to 16.5 out of 30), up to a maximum of seven days at which time the assignment will no longer be accepted, unless there are approved extenuating circumstances.
Non submission of assessments
Students who do not submit all assessment items in this Unit will receive a Fail Incomplete grade (NC) for the Unit.
Moderation will be undertaken for all assessment items to ensure that marking is fair and consistent. Moderation will take place in line with the faculty of health guidelines and the University assessment procedures document https://www.canberra.edu.au/Policies/PolicyProcedure/Index/369

• Actively participate in all of the learning opportunities provided on the Education and Learning in Clinical Contexts PG (9960) Canvas site
• Complete and submit all assessment items
Required IT skills
Work placement, internships or practicums
