Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
All assessments are required to be submitted electronically, unless exceptions are granted by the associate dean (education) for the relevant faculty. A coversheet should only be submitted when an assessment cannot be submitted electronically (e.g. a photograph, a model, a practical assessment), see section 4.4 Assessment Policy and Procedures.
No late submissions will be accepted or extensions granted without appropriate documentation (i.e. medical certificate)
To apply for extensions or deferrals, students must complete the appropriate form (available on Canvas) and upload to the correct dropbox along with the corresponding supporting documentation. It is the students responsibility to check the dropbox for confirmation. Submission marked "completed" are deemed to be approved.
All grades will undergo a moderation process as required by University Policy.
Special assessment requirements
In order to successfully complete this unit and receive a passing grade students must:
- Have a cummulative score 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.
It is expected that students will attend all intensive laboratory classes.
Required IT skills
It is expected that students will possess UC IT entry skills. Students are expected to use the Canvas site for this unit to access all of the required materials.
