Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
In the event a student misses the end of semester examination due to illness or other exceptional circumstances, the procedures outlined on http://www.canberra.edu.au/current-students/canberra-students/examinations-and-results/alternative-exams/deferred-examination-application must be followed (including submitting the online deferred application form within 3 days of scheduled exam to the Examination Office).
Special assessment requirements
In order to pass this unit you will need to get 50% overall with the weightings of each assessment item as shown in 5a above.
To be eligible to undertake supplementary assessment in a unit, a student must:
Be enrolled in their final semester of study;
Have failed a single unit, with a final mark between 45-49% in the unit;
Have passed all other units undertaken in that semester.
The failed unit must be the final unit require to complete the academic requirements of the course.
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.
You need at least 50% to pass this unit.
Your grade will be determined on the basis of a composite score obtained by using the weightings shown above. This composite score will then be scaled to a numerical grade consistent with the descriptors:
|High Distinction (HD)
The 150 hours is made up of 24 hours for attending lectures or online material, and 18 hours for attending the tutorials. There is another 78 hours for working through the lecture material and preparing for the tutorial each week. You should study for about 10 hours for the mid-semester test and 20 hours for the final exam. This is a rough guide only.
Yor participation in both class and online activities will enhance your understanding of the unit content and therfore the quality of your assessment responses. Lack of participation may result in your ability to satisfactorily pass assessment items. You are expected to attend the tutorials each week as there will be an assessable question or two.
Required IT skills
You will be expected to have some familiarilty with the use of a computer.
