Assessment Tasks

1 Portfolio

Assessment Title
Portfolio

Task Description

Portfolio requirements

The portfolio is 60% of your mark. The portfolio is completed each week and is made up of tasks and activities relating to the learning material, from week 1 – 11.

The portfolio tasks related to learning outcomes 1, 2, 3 and 4. These are listed below.

  1. Evaluate the influence of international health care models on the evolution of the Australian health care system
  2. Determine the inter-relationship between health care structures and health care policy
  3. Contrast the difference in governance between Government, non-Government, private and the charitable health care sectors
  4. Examine the relationship between health care reform, health care issues, and health management practice.

The due date for the portfolio is 28th May 2020.

What to include when you submit your portfolio

Your portfolio tasks should be completed each week and compiled in a word document.

While you compile the portfolio tasks, please include the week and the task you are completing. The portfolio is submitted at the end of week 11.

For example, Week 4, Task 2.

Describe the social factors influencing …….

The portfolio requires you to answer questions, complete tasks and activities. You will see portfolio tasks introduced throughout the reading material on Moodle. A summary of tasks is listed at the end of each week, after the recommended reading section.

Each week the word count for the portfolio is 500 words with a variation of +/- 10%. For example, if you have three portfolio tasks for the week, you would need to divide the words accordingly and the total word count for all three combined tasks should equal 500 (+/- 10%) words. For example – you may decide to divide the word count like this:

Task 1 – 200 words

Task 2 – 200 words

Task 3 – 100 words

Total words = 500 words

A marking guide (included below) is used to assess your knowledge and application of portfolio tasks. You are expected to use references to show a wide breadth of reading regarding the task requirements. Please use the Abridged Guide to the APA Referencing Style Edition T3, 2019. You can find this online using this link.

The reference list is not included in your word count.

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.
