Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 12-credit Postgraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 25 hours of study per week, making a total of 300 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Group Discussion 20%
2. Portfolio 30%
3. Written Assessment 50%

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%).

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.

Source: Unit evaluation
Feedback
Although the assessment items supported the learning journey, their requirements could be communicated more effectively.
Recommendation
Assessment descriptions and marking criteria to be reworded for clarity.
Action Taken
Assessment descriptions and criteria have been revised.
Source: Coordinator observations
Feedback
Some assessment tasks would be more manageable and useful if broken into smaller components to limit large amounts of work being required at the same time.
Recommendation
Timelines for term-long continuous tasks (e.g. reflective journals) have been built into the Moodle pages for the subsequent offering to increase awareness of deadlines and appropriate pacing.
Action Taken
Nil.
