General Information

Overview

This unit introduces key topics in oral anatomy, which will enable you to begin preclinical training in term 2, and will form the foundations for clinical practice. In the first half of this unit you will study morphology of teeth, sequence of eruption and basic occlusion. The study of distinct features and traits of teeth will enable you to identify and examine teeth, as well as develop an awareness of root morphology required for primary tooth extractions and periodontal treatment for the adult dentition. The study of the sequence of eruption and exfoliation will develop your understanding of the changes with age from infancy to adulthood. This knowledge and understanding will also enable you to predict changes in the dentition with age and identify abnormalities in the eruption sequence. The study of dental morphology and occlusion will provide you with an understanding of tooth shape and function that applies to the restoration of natural tooth form. The second half of this unit will introduce you to anatomy of the head and neck, including surface anatomy, bones, muscles, blood vessels, nerves and lymphatics. Applications of this knowledge, in patient examination and local anaesthesia, will be developed further in ORAL11005 Oral Anatomy 2 in term 2.

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 Student evaluations and emails

Feedback

Weekly quizzes were a great learning tool and helped build the student's confidence leading into assessments.

Recommendation

It is recommended that weekly multiple choice quizzes are retained in future and that other interactive quiz formats are developed.

Feedback from Student evaluations

Feedback

Students liked the timing of the assessments as they were evenly spread throughout the term.

Recommendation

It is recommended that the On-Line Quizzes and In-Class tests (Multistation anatomy tests) both remain as two assessments. This spreads the assessment evenly over the term and allows opportunities for students to improve on their performance as the term progresses.

Feedback from Student evaluations

Feedback

Students would like more interactive content on Moodle and in the on-line ZOOM tutorials.

Recommendation

It is recommended that more interactive content be added to Moodle and the format of the on-line tutorials be modified to improve interactions between teaching staff and students.

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.
