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).

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.

I think in future offerings the lecturer should still make a couple dot points to each student about which aspects of the feedback/assignment debrief video are applicable to them. Also, it seems that the last assignment was far too lengthy for its weighting. I can understand wanting an older and a new project to assess the maintenance, however I think the same outcome can be achieved with only two projects.
Assessment task and length to be reviewed before the next offering.
Action Taken
Students now satisfied with enhanced feedback and assignment clarity.
