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: Unit evaluation
Feedback
E-exam should be made optional as students may face any technical issues in their exams. This subject is available once a year and exam carries more weight so paper based exam is best option.
Recommendation
We need to discuss and review the mandatory/optional settings for the e-exam in this unit.
Action Taken
Final exam got back to the traditional paper based mode.
Source: Student evaluation (have your say)
Feedback
Students commended the current layout of the Moodle unit website and the resources provided e.g. recorded video lectures, weekly Zoom sessions and support.
Recommendation
Continue to run the unit with current style and format.
