Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Missed or Deferred Lab Exams:
As stated in University Policy, students must request approval from the Unit Convenor to sit a deferred examination. Students must apply for an extension within a reasonable timeframe (usually within 3 days of the missed assessment) and must include the relevant documentary evidence according to the category of extenuating circumstance under which they are applying (i.e., a medical certitificate, death notice).
Students are not permitted to defer a deferred exam. A student who does not attempt a deferred exam will receive a grade of zero for the assessment task.
For further information regarding accepted extenuating circumstances and documentary evidence required please see Assessment Procedures (https://www.canberra.edu.au/Policies/PolicyProcedure/Index/1607)
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 laboratory classes for this unit are not compulsory and marks are not given for attendance. However, the content covered in these classes will form a large part of the assessments and engagement in these classes are highly recommended.
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 the required materials.
Students are required to purchase a Laboratory Coat, available from the UC Shop.
