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 Feedback via the "Have Your Say" survey.

Feedback

More timely and effective feedback for the reflective essays was requested by students.

Recommendation

The due dates for the reflective essay component will be reconsidered for 2019, enabling the unit coordinator to provide timely and effective feedback in the context of overall academic workload, within 14 days of submission. The unit coordinator will also provide more substantial individual feedback.

Feedback from Student Feedback via the "Have Your Say" survey.

Feedback

Feedback provided by students indicated that the scheduling of two oral health exams on the same day negatively impacted their capacity to succeed.

Recommendation

Scheduling of examinations for the unit is out of the unit coordinator’s control. The examinations officer has advised that there is no policy limiting the number of written exams per day.

Feedback from Student Feedback via the "Have Your Say" survey.

Feedback

Students appreciated same day written feedback for their clinical placements.

Recommendation

An innovative Online Real-time Assessment System (ORAS) has been under development over the last 2 years and this was the first term to be fully implemented. The ORAS enables clinical supervisors to complete assessment rubrics, including written feedback, immediately. These completed rubrics are able to be viewed on the same day by students. There is also a spreadsheet tracking their progress throughout the Term, which is regularly updated.

Feedback from Student Feedback via the "Have Your Say" survey.

Feedback

Students would like more group work rather than lectures, as they found that "talking and discussing things as a group I learned so much more"

Recommendation

It is recommended that more group work be implemented in 2019 to provide more opportunities for students to reinforce their knowledge and understanding through group discussion.

Assessment Tasks

1 Practical Assessment

Assessment Title
Practical Assessment

Task Description

It is mandatory to pass this assessment to pass ORAL12003 overall. You must obtain at least 60% in this assessment task in order to pass.

This is a pass/fail assessment, and as such you are required to pass all three components to pass ORAL12003.

Three components:

Pre-clinical Online Quiz:

This is an online quiz in Week 6. There are multiple choice questions on learnings from: Periodontal Examination; Jan Egelberg and Anita Badersten

The online examination is pass/fail, and as such you are required to pass it to pass ORAL12003. A pass grade is 60%.
You have 2 online attempts, but at least 24 hours must pass between each attempt. If after 2 attempts, you do not pass, you will be unable to proceed with ORAL12003.
The quiz will open 7AM Saturday 13 April and close 11.45PM Sun 28 April.

Barrier Exam:

Students will undergo a barrier exam during the Friday clinical session in Week 6.

The barrier exam is an assessment of your basic hygiene clinical skills to ensure you are safe to commence treatment on patients from the general public.

It is mandatory to pass all components of this assessment to pass ORAL12003 overall. If you do not pass on your first sitting, you will be given a supplementary examination within a week. If you do not pass the supplementary examination, you will be unable to continue clinical practice in ORAL12003.

Clinical Practical Component:

In each clinical session, you are required to complete exercises. These exercises are designed to consolidate, apply and extend the theory learnt in lectures into clinical practice. Activities are graded by the supervisor using criterion-referenced assessment rubrics. Detailed rubrics are available. Each mark contributes to an overall piece of pass/fail assessment.

Attendance at all clinical sessions is compulsory. Failure to provide a medical certificate to the unit coordinator for missed sessions will result in failure of this unit component. A pass grade is 60%. This is a pass/fail assessment.


Assessment Due Date

Week 12 Friday (7 June 2019) 11:45 pm AEST

2 Reflective Practice Assignment

Assessment Title
Personal Reflective Blog

Task Description

The clinical experiences in ORAL12003 are to consolidate, apply and extend the theory learnt in lectures and practical sessions during year 1 and 2 of the course.

Self-reflection is an important practice for personal and professional development. You will be required to write a self-reflective blog based on your practical experiences.

Daily reflections are to be recorded on a personalised blog on ORAL12003 Moodle. The purpose of the personal blog is to record your self - reflection of clinical placements on a daily basis. Please note this needs to be completed each day you are in clinic, however you may use your blog more often if you like for your own personal development.

The Gibbs’ Reflective Cycle is an example of a reflective model you could use.

The completion of the personal reflective blog is a compulsory assessment and must be completed to a satisfactory standard. Templates are provided in the clinical workbook for you to make notes for the blog post.

Moreover, a student must pass this assessment item in order to pass the unit overall. The weighting allocated for this assessment item is a PASS/FAIL.

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.

What can you do to act with integrity?
