    Assessment Criteria
    This unit uses standards-based assessment for award of assessment marks. Your assessments will be evaluated solely on the basis of your individual performance
    Submission of Assessments
    Compliance Statements
    All students are required to submit an authorised statement of compliance with all work submitted to the University for assessment, presentation or publication. A statement of compliance certifies that no part of the work constitutes a breach of the Academic Honesty in Coursework Policy 2016.
    The format of the compliance statement will be in the form of:
    a.     a University assignment cover sheet; or
    b.     a University electronic form.

    Assessment Submission
    Submission of assessment tasks will be required by the due date. Written assessments must be submitted online through the LMS. Other assessments, for example visual or oral assessments, must be submitted according to the assessment instructions.
    Work not submitted on or before the due date is subject to a penalty of 2% per working day late. Refer to http://sydney.edu.au/arts/current_students/late_work.shtml for the Faculty Resolutions and Provisions regarding late work.
    Academic Dishonesty and Plagiarism
    Academic honesty is a core value of the University, so all students are required to act honestly, ethically and with integrity. This means that the University is opposed to and will not tolerate academic dishonesty or plagiarism, and will treat all allegations of academic dishonesty and plagiarism seriously. The consequences of engaging in plagiarism and academic dishonesty, along with the process by which they are determined and applied, are set out in the Academic Honesty in Coursework Policy 2015. You can find these documents University Policy Register at http://sydney.edu.au/policies (enter “Academic Honesty” in the search field).
    According to the Policy, plagiarism means representing another person’s work (i.e., ideas, findings or words) as one’s own work by presenting, copying or reproducing it without appropriate acknowledgement of the source. Academic dishonesty means seeking to obtain or obtaining academic advantage for oneself or others (including in the assessment or publication of work) by dishonest or unfair means. Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to:
    ·         Resubmission (or recycling) of work that is the same, or substantially the same as work previously submitted for assessment in the same or in a different unit of study. Every unit of study expects each student to produce new material based upon research conducted in that unit;
    ·         Dishonest plagiarism;
    ·         Engaging another person to complete or contribute to an assessment in your place; and
    ·         Various forms of misconduct in examinations (including copying from another student and taking prohibited materials into an examination venue).
    Academic Honesty Education Module (AHEM)
    As set out in the Academic Honesty in Coursework Policy 2015, all students commencing their study at the University of Sydney are required to complete the Academic Honesty Education Module (AHEM).
    AHEM will be located in the My Units of Study section of the LMS. It should take approximately one hour to finish. Although, you need not do the module all at once, it must be completed by the end of your first semester. Students who do not complete the entire module by the end of the semester will be required to start over.
    For further information on academic integrity, check the Educational Integrity webpage.
    Use of Similarity Detection Software
    Students should be aware that all written assignments submitted in this unit of study will be submitted to similarity detecting software known as Turnitin. Turnitin searches for matches between text in your written assessment task and text sourced from the Internet, published works, and assignments that have previously been submitted to Turnitin for analysis.
    There will always be some degree of text-matching when using Turnitin. Text-matching may occur in use of direct quotations, technical terms and phrases, or the listing of bibliographic material. This does not mean you will automatically be accused of academic dishonesty or plagiarism, although Turnitin reports may be used as evidence in academic dishonesty and plagiarism decision-making processes. Further information about Turnitin is available at http://sydney.edu.au/arts/current_students/plagiarism_and_turnitin.shtml.
    Special Consideration
    Students can apply for Special Consideration for serious illness or misadventure. An application for special consideration does not guarantee the application will be granted.
    Further information on applying for special consideration is available at http://sydney.edu.au/arts/current_students/special_consideration.shtml.
