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 Evaluation.

Feedback

Assessment due date should be scheduled closer to the end of the teaching period.

Recommendation

Assessment due dates of this unit are scheduled with the assessment due dates of other third year units in mind. This is to avoid students having too many assessments due at the same time at the end of the teaching period. Where possible, it is recommended that the unit coordinator/lecturer schedule the assessment due date closer to the end of the teaching period to allow more time for students to consolidate their knowledge and complete assessments.

Feedback from Have Your Say Evaluation.

Feedback

Student appreciated the additional Zoom sessions to clarify the content covered and assessments task requirements.

Recommendation

It is recommended that the unit coordinator/lecturer continue to provide the opportunity to consolidate the content covered as well as the assessment tasks. This can be done via tutorials and/or Zoom sessions.
