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 Have your say

Feedback

Assignment feedback. Feedback was too brief and did not explain how I could have improved. A suggested answer guide would have been useful where detailed individual feedback was too timely to provide. Comments regarding how the cohort generally could have done better would also have been useful.

Recommendation

A suggested general answer guide will be released following the release of student results.

Feedback from Have your Say

I did not like assessment 1 - it is too much work for the marks allocated. I create my summaries, then have to recreate them to meet the task requirment.

Recommendation
