ESSC13002 - Advanced Applied Exercise Science B

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This course is part of a year-long course combination. It is designed to complement the student's programme of study by providing extended opportunities to gain relevant skills and experience under the supervision of exercise science practitioners in primary and secondary prevention settings. The course allows for personal and professional development and provides students an opportunity to gain competency and assume responsibilities in the work environment while working with a variety of elevated risk populations. Students will be engaged in work-integrated learning while being supported by staff, school and faculty. This course will also enhance their understanding of future career opportunities in the Exercise Science community.

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 12-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 25 hours of study per week, making a total of 300 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 20%
2. Online Quiz(zes) 20%
3. Written Assessment 40%
4. Presentation 20%

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%).
