Sydney, NSW: CCH (11th edition may be used)1.8 PlagiarismOf necessity, most academic work is heavily dependent on the findings or ideas of others (i.e. authors, scholars). Indeed, one of the main aims of academic assessment tasks is to encourage you to research widely and develop research skills. In presenting your work for assessment you must show the assessor that you have read widely, and the only way you can do this is to properly cite your sources in the body of your essay, assignment or report.As a matter of intellectual honesty and scholarly integrity you must say where ideas, information, arguments, diagrams or other theoretical models come from, regardless of whether you are quoting directly, paraphrasing, or simply mentioning or using data from that source. To do otherwise amounts to plagiarism, and is a serious academic offence.Plagiarism goes further than the failure to acknowledge quotations, paraphrases or information from published sources – it also includes copying or using other students work and downloading material from the internet and passing it off as your own. Any cases of plagiarism, cheating or copying, will be dealt with by the Course Co-ordinator in accordance with the University’s regulations, and may result in a zero mark for the piece of assessment, failure of the whole course or exclusion from the program. Make sure you are aware of the University's Regulation 6.1.1 Student Plagiarism, available at http://www.ballarat.edu.au/legislation/6.1.1-plagiarismTurnitin – Turnitin is an electronic plagiarism database against which originality of student work can be tested. It is a web-based program that helps both student and teacher to detect and remedy any inadvertent and unacknowledged use of another’s work before the assignment is submitted for final assessment. Turnitin has the capability to produce a report verifying the percentage of your work which is original. This report will then accompany any work you submit for assessment.You will be informed by your lecturer if you are required to submit your assignments through Turnitin.1.9 CopyrightCopyright is different to Plagiarism. Plagiarism is the use of another person's work, and passing it off as your own, without acknowledgement of the author. Copyright is the restriction which defines fair use of another's work.As a student, you will make use of other people's copyright material during your study. The Copyright Act has provisions for students and researchers to copy and communicate electronic, audiovisual and hardcopy material, although limits do apply. It is your responsibility to comply with the Fair Dealing Provisions of the Copyright Act which, combined with an agreement with the Copyright Agency Ltd, provides students with legal use of a vast amount of copyright material related to their research and study. However, there are limitations, such as only copying one chapter or 10% of a book or one journal article. Further information on these limitations and other relevant material is available on the University web site at http://www.ballarat.edu.au/aasp/copyright/.1.10 UBOnline/MoodleThe University’s Learning Management Systems (LMS) for delivery of learning resources, course information and guidelines to support face-to-face learning is Moodle/UBOnline. There are a number of interactive features in the LMS which will improve communication with teaching staff. For example, “Announcements” may arrive as a pop-up message, and tasks requiring your action will be indicated by highlighted icons..UBOnline/Moodle will NOT be used for this course.Where courses use UBOnline/Moodle, it will be your responsibility to download the relevant lecture and tutorial notes to support your class participation. You should develop the habit of accessing the UBOnline/Moodle frequently (at least twice a week).For students, login to the UBOnline/Moodle is available through https://ubonline.ballarat.edu.au/login/index.php.1.11 Special ConsiderationIf you believe that you are eligible for special consideration, due to illness or other cause, you need to complete the Application for Special Consideration form available from http://www.ballarat.edu.au/resources-special-consideration-form, your School or Partner Provider office. For further information please refer to the Information For Students Applying For Special Consideration (Including Deferral of an Examination) Guidelines available fromhttp://policy.ballarat.edu.au/university/special_consideration/chol/phpExtension of Assessment Due Date – In the first instance, discuss requests for an extension with your lecturer, or you may formally request an extension by completing the Special Consideration form. Supplementary Assessment may only be granted as an outcome of an application for Special Consideration. 1.12 Late Submission of Assessment TasksLate submission of work may incur a penalty for each week day of up to 10% of the available marks. Unless with prior arrangement with the lecturer, papers submitted two weeks (ie 14 calendar days) after the due date will not be marked.1.13 Presentation of Academic WorkUnless otherwise specified by your lecturer, all work presented for assessment in this course must comply with the format outlined in the University's General Guide to the Presentation of Academic Work publication, available from the University bookshop at Mt Helen campus or online at: http://www.ballarat.edu.au/generalguide.1.14 Assignment Cover SheetsUnless your lecturer has specifically advised otherwise, all assignments must be accompanied by a signed official cover sheet ('Plagiarism Declaration Form'), available from the School of Business foyer at Mt Helen and at http://www.ballarat.edu.au/business/resources/student-forms/assign-coversheet.doc and lodged as appropriate for your location.1.15 Submission and Return of Student WorkThe assignment box is located on level 4.1.16 EthicsIf you intend to survey or obtain information from other students, staff or persons outside the University as part of research for tutorial exercises or assessable tasks, you must check with your Course Co-ordinator, lecturer or tutor before undertaking your research to determine if approval is required. Where the research project could affect the interests of interviewees, ethics approval must be obtained from the University’s Human Research Ethics Committee. Your lecturer or tutor will assist you in arranging this. Some tutorial exercises and assessable tasks have been granted a block approval, provided certain procedures are undertaken. Where relevant, you will be advised of these procedures by your Course Co-ordinator, lecturer or tutor. Further details are located at www.ballarat.edu.au/ard/ubresearch/hdrs/ethics/humanethics/index.shtml 1.17 AppealsYou may appeal about administrative issues, final grades or other academic decisions. With regard to grades or academic decisions, discuss your concerns with your lecturer in the first instance and then your Academic Co-ordinator to access the required form to lodge your appeal. For full details about the appeals process please refer to University Regulation 5.3 – Assessment http://www.ballarat.edu.au/legislation-5.3-Assessment.1.18 Academic Progress CommitteeThe Academic Progress Committee is a sub-committee of the Programs Committee, and is responsible for applying the University's Monitoring Course Progression Procedure (http://policy.ballarat.edu.au/esos/standard_10/ch02.php) and complying with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship International Student Reporting Requirements. Students who do not perform to a satisfactory level within their program or course may be asked for an explanation by the Committee, which has the power to warn and exclude students who demonstrate unsatisfactory progress.#p#分页标题#e#1.19 Early Intervention for students judged as being at risk of not meeting Academic Progress requirementsIn compliance with the University’s Intervention Strategy – Monitoring Course Progression Guidelines (http://policy.ballarat.edu.au/esos/standard_10/ch02.php), the School must identify students who fail an assessment task during a semester. Students who may be at risk of eventually failing that course will be offered assistance as early in the semester as possible, to ensure such “at risk“ students are given every opportunity to pass.Students who are identified as being “at risk” of not meeting academic progress requirements will be formally asked to attend an interview to assess the reasons for their unsatisfactory performance wherein if appropriate they will be offered a program of assistance (such as study skills sessions, mentoring, English language classes, personal counselling, etc). A record will be kept of any such assistance program offered and the student’s uptake of the program.1.20 GradingThe University observes the following grading schemeHD High Distinction 80 – 100%D Distinction 70 – 79%C Credit 60 – 69%P Pass 50 – 59%MF Marginal Fail 40 – 49%F Fail 0 – 39%XF Non-assessed FailAD Assessment Deferred – up to 3 monthsTD Assessment Deferred – up to 12 months1.21 Use of DictionariesThe University’s Students from a Non-English Speaking Background – Special Provisions for Invigilated Assessments Guidelines (http://www.ballarat.edu.au/policy/special-provisions-non-english-speaking) make provisions for students who are from a non-English speaking background to use an approved unmarked hard copy bilingual dictionary in an examination.
