Can students include copyright materials in their assignments and presentations?

Generally yes. The fair dealing exemption allows students to use works for research, private study, criticism or review. So provided the student is including the work for one of these purposes, and acknowledges the author and source of the material, and the use could be characterized as fair, bearing in mind the fair dealing outline,it will likely be covered by the fair dealing exemption.
