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.

Source: In-class students
Lack of flexibility in choosing group members for the major assessment.
Consider allowing students the option to self-select group members for the major assessment.
Action Taken
Students are provided the option to self-select their group members for the major assessment task.

Textbook is not current.
Consider replacing the textbook.
Action Taken
An exhaustive search has been conducted to identify the content that would offer a perspective on business analysis and align it with the enterprise needs. However, the prescribed textbook was found to be the most relevant and suitable for this unit. As this textbook is not current, additional materials have been offered to the students on the Moodle unit website to provide an exposure to the new developments in the business analysis area.

Add more modelling tasks in the tutorial activities.
Provide more tutorials to allow a better understanding of enterprise modelling in an authentic scenario.

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.
