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. Written Assessment 30%
2. Online Quiz(zes) 20%
3. Written Assessment 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.

Need more instructions on e-portfolios.
Revise the ePortfolio assessment task and provide detailed steps to create ePortfolios.
Action Taken
This was actioned - the assessment specifications were clarified, and students were also provided with detailed instructions (written and video) on creating ePortfolios.

Students enjoyed completing online quizzes.
Continue to provide online quizzes and add more questions.
Action Taken
Online quizzes were continued. Some questions were slightly reworded to reduce ambiguity.

Software tools would help students to complete enterprise analysis activities.
Explore software tools to create automated workflows and complete enterprise analysis activities.
Action Taken
Since this was the first time I coordinated this unit, this item hasn’t been actioned. Hence, this item is being rolled over. However, a refresh of the lecture slides, tutorial activities, and Moodle site was completed. In particular, the lecture slides referred to older years' Kindle locations and lacked the incorporation of figures from the text, slide design did not reflect current CQU branding, tutorial sheet activities needed to be better aligned with the lecture slide content, and all dead links needed to be fixed. Work on these minor revisions was approved by Dr Sriman Grandhi (Head of Course), who was also the previous Unit Coordinator. Going forward, this unit requires an ongoing Unit Coordinator who can explore the software tools, consider a newer textbook (note: students found it useful), and develop textbook-aligned learning and teaching material.

The ePortfolio assessment has too many submissions and takes away time from the final assessment.
Reduce the number of ePortfolios in Assessment 1.

Australian Computer Society (ACS) recognises the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA). SFIA is adopted by organisations, governments and individuals in many countries and provides a widely used and consistent definition of ICT skills. SFIA is increasingly being used when developing job descriptions and role profiles.
