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 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Online Quiz(zes) 50%
2. Practical 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: Self-reflection and student feedback from unit evaluations.
Feedback
Tutorial video recordings.
Recommendation
Record the tutorials and make the videos available on Moodle. This will help all students learn the tutorial content better and will improve equity for the external students as this content is not covered in the residential school.
Action Taken
A video recording of each week's tutorial was made and posted on Moodle within 24 hours.
Source: Self-reflection and student feedback from unit evaluations.
Feedback
Practical video recordings.
Recommendation
Make additional video recordings of the practical activities so that they cover all practical material.
Action Taken
Practical content was deliberately incorporated into the above tutorial video recordings to ensure that students had video recordings of each week's practical as well as tutorial content.
Source: Self-reflection.
Feedback
Practical video recordings.
Recommendation
Make additional video recordings of the practical activities so that they include the newly received plastinated specimens.
Action Taken
