Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
Normally an aggregate mark of 50% is required to pass the unit. The aggregate mark is the weighted total T of all assessment marks. Final grades are based on the total T:
P (50% ≤ T < 65%), CR (65% ≤ T < 75%), DI (75% ≤ T < 85%), HD (≥ 85% ).
The unit convener reserves the right to question students orally on any of their submitted work. Students are required to develop and maintain an active e-Portfolio related to the project using the Mahara e-Portfolio System.
Students need to book for an oral presentation during Week 12, the available dates and times will be communicated during the course of the Semester.
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 precise allocation of time will depend on your project and should be discussed with the Project Supervisor and Unit Convenor.
|Supervisor consultation and project meetings||1 hours/week||for 12 weeks||12 hours|
|Research, reflection and planning including attending lectures, guest lectures and presentations||2 hours/week||for 13 weeks||26 hours|
|Project implementation, e-Portfolio & report writing||8 hours/week||for 13 weeks||104 hours|
|The oral presentation including preparation and delivery||8 hours||leading up to week 12||8 hours|
|Unit study load for the whole semester||150 hours
Attendance at all scheduled sessions in this unit is compulsory. Successful engagement with all learning activities in this accredited Initial Teacher Education course is necessary to demonstrate that you have met the Graduate career stage of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (AITSL, 2011).
More than two undocumented absences from this unit could result in a fail. In the case of medical reasons or other extenuating circumstances (e.g., a death in the family) medical certificates or equivalent documentation will need to be provided.
Note: You will be expected to attend the final presentations of all students in the unit.
