 Assessment Submission:

Turnitin

Turnitin is an online text-matching service which can be used to support academic integrity and address at submission of the assessment.

 Good practice

  • Providing clear advice to you on the e-Submission process as part of their assessment expectations assists in ensuring that it is straightforward for RMIT You to submit work electronically.
  • You can submit non-electronic works via conversion by a digital scanner, i.e. paper-based assessments can be scanned and submitted for assessment via the e-Submission process.

Establishing a Turnitin assignment in Canvas is a quick way to provide an e-Submission process for a class group

You must submit all assessment tasks electronically via blackboard as directed by their teacher.

You are not to email or hand assessment tasks to teachers in  corridor or cafeteria etc

 Late submission:

If you require an Extension of Submittable Work (assignments, reports or project work etc.) for 7 calendar days or less (from the original due date) and have valid reasons, you must complete and

Lodge an Application for Extension of Submittable Work (7 Calendar Days or less) form and lodge it with the Senior Educator/ Program Manager.

The application must be lodged no later than one working day before the official due date. You will be notified within no more than 2 working days of the date of lodgement as to whether the extension has been granted.

If you seek an Extension of Submittable Work for more than 7 calendar days (from the original due date) must lodge an Application for Special Consideration form under the provisions of the Special Consideration Policy, preferably prior to, but no later than 2 working days after the official due date.

Assignments submitted late without approval of an extension will not be accepted or marked.

 

Refer to RMIT University Policies and Procedures, verify for most recent version.
