Plagiarism
All used sources must be properly acknowledged with references and citations, if you did not create it. Quotations and paraphrasing are allowed but the sources must be acknowledged. Failure to do so is regarded as plagiarism and the minimum penalty for plagiarism is failure for the assignment. The act of given your assignment to another student is classified as a plagiarism offence. Copying large chucks and supplying a reference will result in zero marks as you have not contributed to the report. Copying from Youtube or other videos is also plagiarism (including transcripts). Citation in a video can be included as credits at the end.
Late Submission
Late submission of assignments will be penalised as follows:
• For assignments 1 to 10 days late, a penalty of 5% (of total available marks) per day.
• For assignments more than 10 days late, a penalty of 100% will apply. Which means, the assignment will not be marked and attract a fail grade.
Your submission must be compatible with the software (PDF/Word/Video/Zip) in Melbourne Polytechnic, Computer Laboratories/Classrooms.
Extensions:
Under normal circumstances, extensions will not be granted. In case of extenuating circumstances—such as illness—a Special Consideration form, accompanied by supporting documentation, must be received before 3 working days from the due date. If granted, an extension will be only granted only by the time period stated on the documentation; that is, if the illness medical certificate was for one day, an extension will be granted for one day only. Accordingly, the student must submit within that time limit.
Penalties may apply for late submission without an approved extension.
Penalties:
Academic misconduct such as cheating and plagiarism incur penalties ranging from a zero result to program exclusion.
