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.

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 Qualitative comments in student evaluation and their emails, zoom or phone conversations with the UC.


The additional support from the academic learning center (ALC) and the overall support, contemporary assessment topics, and rich HRM and academic writing resources have been widely appreciated by the students in this unit. However, one student mentioned that the video resources should be named better to facilitate the search and any duplication of information should be avoided in the weekly tiles.


ALC support should continue. Assessment topics should continue to be authentic, engaging and contemporary. The weekly resources should be revisited carefully to avoid any duplication and the video resources should be labeled more appropriately to make the content search easier.
