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. Examination 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: Staff observation/reflection
Feedback
Students struggle in understanding what is expected in the written assignment.
Recommendation
Lectures will be pre-recorded and made available to students ahead of time.
Action Taken
Lectures were made available to students at the start of term. Additionally, the lecture content was 'chunked' into short, focused recordings. This was well-received by the students.
Source: Unit Evaluations and email
Feedback
Students found the unit to be well-presented and informative. Many students enjoyed the shorter pre-recorded lectures and felt the hand-drawn diagrams aided their learning
Recommendation
This style of presentation will be used in future offerings with the addition of 'live' tutorial sessions
Action Taken
The option of a 'live' face-to-face tutorial was well-received. Students were also given the option to attend tutorials via ISL and Zoom.
Source: Unit Evaluations
Feedback
Students would like lecture content availible earlier.
Recommendation
The previous term's lectures will be provided on the Moodle site. This will aid those students who may want to walk ahead of the schedule.
Action Taken
Instead of offering the previous term's lectures, the current terms lectures were recorded ahead of time and made available to students early in the term.
Source: Student feedback
Feedback
Some student felt that the unit is too content heavy.
Recommendation
Content covered is deemed essential for students. Additional student support programs are currently being evaluated to aid students.
Action Taken
Nil.
Source: Self-reflection
Feedback
Some lecture recordings require updating.
Recommendation
Lectures will be re-recorded in an appropriate recording studio. Green- screening will be used to ensure a high- quality production for the students.
Action Taken
Nil.
