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%).

Assessments flowed nicely into each other and the lecturer gave the freedom to make the assessments as close to what would be experienced in the work environments as possible.
Recommendation
Lecturer to maintain the same delivery strategy.
Action Taken
The lecturer applied the same delivery strategy.
Source: "Have your say" student unit evaluation survey
Feedback
The assignment debrief lectures were great but a bit of extra individual feedback on the assignments would of been helpful even as simple as pointing out particular parts of the debrief lecture that especially applied to where we had lost marks ie 'See debrief session in relation to referencing' just because sometimes in the debrief students were unsure where marks were lost.
Recommendation
The lecturer can elaborate the comment specifically applying to the particular student.
Action Taken
There was not the same lecturer for the current year so the new lecturer didn't conduct debrief sessions. He did, however, produce written feedback of each assessment item to each student.

Feedback
The assessment tasks were well structured and uncomfortable. They forced me to grapple with aspects of building services that I had not anticipated and significantly enhanced my knowledge.
Recommendation
The same delivery strategy will be applied to next year's unit delivery.
Action Taken
Nil.
