Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Approval of extenuating circumstances for late submission of assignments will be dependent upon the production of supporting documentation and at the discretion of the unit convener.
No other forms of submission other than the indicated in each assessment item will be accepted. Submissions via email will be ignored. If a student chooses to submit his/her assignment via the Internet off the campus, it is the student's responsibility to guarantee the accessibility of the Internet. Not being able to access to the Internet at a location which is off campus is not an excuse for extension.
Extensions will not be granted for quizzes unless arranged prior to the quiz due date and time.
Students will be asked to confirm the following online declaration at the point of submission. I certify that:
1. 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;
2. 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
3. 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
Conditions to PASS the unit:
1. Students need to obtain at least 50% in the Overall Mark, calculated as described above;
2.Students need to obtain at least 40% in the Term Assignment AND at least 50% in all the other assessment items.
Both Conditions need to be satisfied.
Once you have met the conditions for a Pass, higher grades will be awarded on the basis of the highest category shown below, in which your marks fit.
85 <= Final marks <= 100
Final grade = HD
75 <= Final marks < 85
Final grade = DI
65 <= Final marks < 75
Final grade = CR
50 <= Final marks < 65
Final grade = P
0 <= Final marks < 50
Final grade = FAIL (NX, NS, NC or NN)
The unit convener reserves the right to question students orally on any of their submitted work.
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.
Midsemester Assignment: 15h
Term Assigment: 48h
Tutorial attendance is compulsary and will count towards your term assignment mark.
Your participation in both class and online activities will enhance your understanding of the unit content and therefore the quality of your assessment responses. Lack of participation may result in your inability to satisfactorily pass assessment items.
