All assignment submissions must be completed individually via EASE
(http://ease.usq.edu.au/). Collusion and cheating is considered to be a very serious issue and all
assignments will be closely monitored to ensure that all students are submitting their own work.
This ensures that all students are treated fairly and graded on their own knowledge and work. It
is acceptable to discuss course content with others to improve your understanding and clarify
requirements however you must not discuss the actual assignment solution and the solutions to
assignment questions must be done on your own. You must not copy from anyone, including
tutors and fellow students, nor provide copies of your work to others. Assignments that do not
adhere to this requirement will be deemed as being the result of collusion or cheating. This may
lead to severe academic penalties as outlined in the Student Academic Regulation Misconduct
policy found at:-http://policy.usq.edu.au/portal/custom/detail/student-academicmisconduct/index.html.
It is your own responsibility to ensure the integrity of your work. It is recommended that you
