Assessment Grading

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Policy for more details of interim results and final grades.

Task Description

An understanding of human anatomy and physiology is essential to many health professions. The fundamentals of this knowledge must be learnt and understood. The various health professions you have chosen to study have selected the knowledge and concepts taught in this unit as relevant to your future scope of practice.

  1. There will be four separate online quizzes to assess your knowledge of the unit material.
  2. The number of questions and weighting for each quiz is outlined below.
  3. Only one attempt is allowed on each quiz so ensure you have a good internet connection before starting.
  4. There is a minimum mark requirement in the assessment task: 50% on the cumulative score of all three quizzes.
  5. In the absence of an approved extension, there will be no opportunity to complete the task after the assigned date.
  6. Dates that each quiz open and close are outlined below. Each quiz must be completed on or before the due date listed.

2 Practical Assessment

Assessment Title
Practical assessment

Task Description

In the clinical context, health professionals are expected to have in-depth knowledge and understanding of anatomical structures, physiological systems and their interrelation. In a university simulation setting you will take part in practical learning activities with anatomical models, bones and real plastinated human bodies for the purpose of familiarization with these structures.

In this practical assessment you will:

  1. Identify and describe anatomical structures of the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems for the head and upper quadrant on anatomical models, bones and real plastinated human bodies.
  2. Explain the role of the respiratory, cardiovascular and digestive systems in body maintenance and physiological regulation.
  3. Explain normal function of human movemen.
  4. Analyse how the human body responds to use and disuse across the lifespan.

The practical assessment is worth 50% of your overall mark for the unit. It is approximately 1 hour in duration. It consists of approximately 20 stations set up around the room, each with one specimen. At each station will be a station identifier that lists the questions. Some stations will have several brief identification type questions, while others may have just one physiology question. After a set period of time, you will rotate to the next station and repeat this until you have been at all stations. There will be 1 student at each station at a time. You will be given an answer sheet on which to write your answers. The practical assessment is closed book so the only things you will be allowed to have on you are pens (blue or black ink only), your answer sheet and ID (e.g., driver's license). Structures will be tagged using coloured chalk or stickers labeled A, B, C, D, etc. Questions will cover the anatomy and physiology of muscles, bones, joints, nerves, blood vessels, viscera and supporting structures in the head and neck, thorax, abdomen, back and upper limbs. Students are responsible for all content covered in class for the entire term that is visible on the specimens that we have, with particular emphasis placed on the practical activities.




Assessment Due Date

Week 12 Thursday (7 Feb 2019) 1:00 pm AEST

All students take the practical assessment in person in Week 12 in Rockhampton. The exact time will be posted on Moodle.

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
