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


"I would of liked a student forum for us to post questions and discussions online"


Student familiarity with what is provided in Moodle is not uniformly understood. Improve awareness by increasing mention of what is available in Moodle during the (recorded) workshops.

Feedback from Have Your Say


"The links on e-reading seemed to work slow in downloading, whether they could have been added to the moodle main site page for ease of access."


In line with SBL policy, readings previously uploaded to each week in Moodle have been moved to the eReading List. This can slow down the updating of reading list due to librarian checking processes. Speed of access to material on the eReading list can be impacted by servers located outside the CQU ecosystem.

Feedback from Have Your Say


"I found that it was a bit difficult to find all relevant weekly information due to it being spread across multiple Moodle unit tabs."


All lecture PPT and Workshop materials, and recorded sessions are provided in the relevant weekly tab in Moodle. The separate location of reading materials on the eReading list does require students to also check the relevant weekly tab in that system. Familiarity and confidence with Moodle will overcome this concern.

Feedback from Have Your Say


"There was so much reading sources given for each week of the unit, it was a little unnerving as to how much I should of been reading."


Materials in the eReading list were flagged with a variety of guidance notes indicating whether the materials were 'Essential' through to 'Recommended' and 'Workshop Question'. Continue this practice. It is also recommended to reduce the amount of posted reading materials and this has been done for T2 that follows. Students should then be encouraged to search for additional materials through the CQU Library databases.

Feedback from Have Your Say


"The deadlines of 5pm for assignments don't really help full time workers. In the previous 3 units I had 23:00 deadlines, which helped in finalising the assessments without rushing."


Consistent deadline submission times across all units would likely benefit students. A later submission time to 23:00 hours delays marker access but this may not be a major concern.
