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.

Quizzes related to the neuropsychological assessment task are to be reviewed to ensure closer alignment to the unit learning outcomes and expected volume of knowledge for an AQF9 Unit.

Feedback from 'Have Your Say' Student Evaluation.

Feedback

Students reported a lack of clarity regarding the structure of Assessment Task 2 (written assessment).

Recommendation

Review the current marking criteria and update this to a new rubric with greater clarity and expectations for this Assessment Task.

Review unit content and create resources to enhance efficiency (e.g., recorded lectures) and support case-based learning with scheduled in-person lectures.

Feedback from 'Have Your Say' Student Evaluation.

Feedback

Students reported that some elements of the written assessment task did not align with their learning and stage of professional development.

Recommendation

Assessment Task 2 to be reviewed to ensure closer alignment with students' stage of professional development, internal clinical placement expected volume of knowledge for an AQF9 Unit.

Unit Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Critically apply theoretical knowledge and a culturally responsive scientist-practitioner approach to the selection and implementation of psychological tests, within the context of complex psychological assessment
  2. Justify and communicate evidence-based integration of advanced assessment techniques in oral and written format
  3. Demonstrate working knowledge of brain functions as they relate to neurological dysfunctions within the context of clinical psychology assessments.

These Learning Outcomes are intended to link with the CG17 Master of Clinical Psychology course Learning Outcome "Conduct culturally responsive assessment of psychological disorders to meet the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse populations, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples" (Learning Outcome number 3).

    1 Online Quiz(zes)

    Assessment Title
    ASSESSMENT TASK 1: ONLINE QUIZZES - NEUROPSYCHOLOGY, NEUROANATOMY AND BRAIN FUNCTIONS RELEVANT TO CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY (ONLINE QUIZ(ZES) 20%)

    Task Description

    Assessment Task 1 comprises four (4) on-line quizzes. The quizzes are designed to assess your knowledge and knowledge-application of the behavioural geography and functions of the brain within the context of Clinical Psychology. Each quiz will focus on a particular topic, i.e., 1) Basic concepts of neuropsychology and behavioural geography of the brain; 2) Orientation, Attention and Perception; 3) Executive Function; and 4) Memory. Each quiz will be preceded by an interactive learning module you will access through Moodle. You must complete the interactive learning module in order to access the associated quiz, e.g. Module 1 pairs with Quiz 1. You will have umlimited access to the interactive learning module; however, you will only be permitted one attempt for each quiz. Each quiz will contain 25 questions with multiple-choice response options. Each question will be worth 1-mark for a total of 25-marks per quiz, which means the total for all four (4) quizzes will be 100 marks. This will then be weighted to represent 20% of your overall grade for PSYC21002. Assessment Task 1 is self-paced and will be open from Week 2 of Term 1. ALL four (4) quizzes must be completed by Week 11 5:00pm Thursday 30 September 2021. Students can work through the interactive learning modules and quizzes at their own pace throughout Weeks 2 - 11 in Term 2. Students will be provided with real-time formative feedback for incorrect responses to assist with clarification of learning where required.

In addition to this written summary, students are required to provide a) differential diagnoses, b) recommendations for intervention planning, and c) integrate cultural considerations where appropriate, based on your integrated formulation for Client A. Students are to provide evidence of further reading (i.e. references) to support their integration and interpretation.

    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?
