- Word Count (if applicable)
- Student ID:
The first page of each assessment submission should include the following information:
- Student Name:
- Assessment Name:
- Word Count (if applicable):
- I certify that:
- The attached assignment is my own work and no part of this work has been written for me by any other person except where such collaboration has been authorised by the lecturer/s concerned;
- Material drawn from other sources has been fully acknowledged as to author/creator, source and other bibliographic details according to unit-specific requirements for referencing; and
- No part of this work has been submitted for assessment in any other unit in this or another Faculty except where authorised by the lecturer/s concerned.
Special assessment requirements
Information on extensions and special consideration for assessments can be found in the Student Guide to Policies.
Year-Long Units: Students enrolled in year-long units (consisting of a part A and part B unit code) will be allocated a continuing grade (CNTYL) on completion of part A. Once the student has completed part B, the grade for part A will be updated so that the grades for the two unit codes are the same.
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.
Refer to the (Supplementary assessment policy)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, following UC policy.
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.
The amount of time you will need to spend on study in this unit will depend on a number of factors including your prior knowledge, learning skill level and learning style. Nevertheless, in planning your time commitments you should note that for a 3cp unit the total notional workload over the semester or term is assumed to be 150 hours. These hours include time spent in classes. The total workload for units of different credit point value should vary proportionally. For example, for a 6cp unit the total notional workload over a semester or term is assumed to be 300 hours.
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.
It is expected students attend all lectures and tutorials as per timetable in order to benefit from formative feedback on design development. However, is a student is unable to attend due to prolonged illness; a medical certificate may be presented for consideration.
Required IT skills
Access to a personal laptop would benefit the students during lectures and tutorials. In particular, software requirements are Word, and Adobe Creative Suite with a minimum of Illustrator, In-design and Photoshop available. Computer Labs will be scheduled out of class time for those students who don't have access to a personal computer.
Expect to cover the costs of art materials, these requirements will be discussed in class.(Note: To calculate your unit fees see: How do I calculate my fees?.The online UC Co-op Textbook Search is available for purchasing text books.)
Work placement, internships or practicums
Not applicable for this unit.
Applications for an extension to the due date for submission of an assessment item on the grounds of illness or other unavoidable and verifiable personal circumstances (that is, special consideration) should be submitted via email to the unit convener. Each application for an extension has to be supported by appropriate documentation. For advice on documentary evidence to support applications for extensions, please refer to the Assessment Guide that supports the Assessment Procedures.
