Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Email from a previous student who is working full time for a financial planning practice

Feedback

A previous student suggested that now that she is working and using XPlan software, she wishes that instead of XPlan being optional for the assessment that she was forced to use it.

Recommendation

The unit coordinator, will use this feedback to strongly recommend students to use the XPlan software for their assessments. However, given the already high workloads to learn the main content and complete the assessment of this unit, XPlan will remain optional.

Feedback from Student evaluations

Feedback

Time-poor and auditory learning students were positive about the podcast recordings of prescribed readings

Recommendation

The unit coordinator will continue providing podcast recordings of the prescribed readings.

Feedback from Student evaluations

Feedback

Students found the workload of this financial planning unit stressful, because they needed to keep up each week with the readings and recordings. Getting behind made it difficult for them to catchup.

Recommendation

The unit coordinator will review the learning material to ensure that it can be covered in the required hours per week.

Feedback from Student evaluations

Feedback

Some students are still finding the design of the practical assessment unsatisfactory in terms of length, time to complete, having to keep up to date with weekly content and not get behind, having each week's content linked to each task of the assessment and wanting more personalized feedback than currently offered.

Recommendation

The unit coordinator will review assessments to ensure that they can be successfully completed within the required volume of learning for this unit.
