Offerings For Term 2 - 2022
All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes –
in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory.
International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet
both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period
(satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
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.

the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.
Feedback from Unit Evaluation survey.
I believe that there needs to be more explanation for each assessment task. Considering this is an online subject I felt very confused and alone when I was reading the questions.
The unit lecturer will provide more direction with respect to assessment task requirements. It is noted that the lecturer provided live tutorial sessions, presenting an opportunity for students to engage directly and seek direction about assessment tasks.
