Special assessment requirements
In order to pass this unit, students have to obtain at least 50% of the available marks and attempt all assessment pieces.
Students who are unable to submit an assignment within a week of the due date, for medical reasons, will be required to submit assignment on a negotiated due date.
No assignments will be accepted for marking after the solution or marked assignments have been returned to the class.
In the event of a contested failure of the unit, a supplementary assessment will be made available to the student through a request to the unit convenor.
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 who need assistance in undertaking the unit because of disability or other circumstances should inform their Unit Convener as soon as possible so the necessary arrangements can be made.
