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. Practical Assessment 50%
2. Presentation 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: Student/Lecturer
General satisfaction expressed by students with the unit material and presentation. As unit co-ordinator I consider the unit needs considerable development in order to align the final objective with the legislative requirements for a Multi Crew Cooperation (MCC) license endorsement.
While the student feedback was on a positive note, Further development of course material will take place in order to have the unit aligned with that objective prior to the presentation in Term 2, 2020. Additonally the introduciton of the flight simulator will enhance the quality of this unit.
Action Taken
Full MCC conducted under the syllabus and approval of Aviation Australia.
Source: Unit Coordinator
This was the first full Multi Crew Cooperation (MCC) unit run at CQU under the Aviation Australia Part 142 approval. The briefing sessions and the flight training sessions in the simulator were delivered flawlessly.
This delivery will continue.
Action Taken
Source: Unit Coordinator
The anticipated number of students is around 40 in Term 2 -2021. Additional MCC qualified staff would be required.
Recruitment of a minimum of two MCC qualified staff is recommended for a smooth delivery of this unit.
