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

Feedback

Students reported that there could be more emphasis on when the 4 Quest tasks were released to students and when they should submit these tasks.

Recommendation

Whilst the schedule clearly states when students can access and submit the 4 Quests as part of Assessment 1, students appear to struggle with this rolling assessment task idea. It is recommended that Assessment 1 be revised so that only one assessment task is completed which incorporates the learning outcomes of the current 4 Quest tasks.

Feedback from Have Your Say Feedback

Feedback

Students commented that the Zoom tutorials (done by a causal tutor) were not well received due to mixed messages on assessment requirements being given.

Recommendation

It is recommended that the delivery of the Zoom tutorials by casual staff be reviewed for future offerings with a view to enhancing the messages delivered to students on assessment requirements.
