Important information

Before you proceed with the assignment, please read this section carefully and make sure you prepare and submit your assignment in accordance with the rules outlined here.

Academic integrity

This assignment must be your own work. It is acceptable to discuss course content with others to improve your understanding and clarify requirements, but solutions to assignment questions must be done on your own.

You must not copy from anyone, including tutors and fellow students, nor allow others to copy your work.

All Assignments will be checked using collusion monitoring tools to ensure that each assignment is the original work of the submitting student. Assignments that do not adhere to this requirement will be deemed as being the result of collusion or plagiarism. This may lead to severe academic penalties. It is your own responsibility to ensure the integrity of your work. Refer to the USQ Policy Library for more details:

  • Academic Integrity Policy
  • Academic Integrity Procedure

Late submission policy

USQ’s Assessment – Assignment (Late Submission) and Compassionate and Compelling Circumstances procedures relate to Extensions and Late Assignments. They can be found under the following links:

  • Assessment – Assignment (Late Submission) Procedure
  • Assessment of Compassionate and Compelling Circumstances Procedures:

An Assignment submitted after the due date without an approved extension of time will be penalised. The penalty for late submission is a reduction by five percent (5%) of the maximum mark applicable for the assignment, for each University Business Day or part Business Day that the assignment is late. An assignment submitted more than ten (10) University Business Days after the due date will have a mark of zero recorded for that Assignment.

Team work

Students are encouraged to work in teams to complete the assignment as teamwork is an important skill required by industry. You may choose to work alone.

If you opt to work as a team:

  • The same marks will be awarded to both students.
  • No team can exceed more than two students.
  • It is up to you to find a team-mate and this can usually be achieved in class or through a request on the Study Desk.
  • Only one team member should submit the assignment.
  • You must provide the student names and student numbers of both team members on the title page of the report.

Referencing requirements

References are required and the Harvard AGPS standard of referencing must be used. Ensure that your report is fully referenced, including any references to the text book. Your report should include in-text references and a List of References.
