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 25%
2. Online Quiz(zes) 15%
3. Written Assessment 60%

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%).

Source: Student feedback - Unit evaluation
Feedback
The group task, assessment and textbook are commended.
Recommendation
Continue with mix of assessment tasks, including a group assessment with progressive tasks for the group assessment.
Action Taken
Continued with a mix of assessments, including the group assessment.
Source: Student feedback - Unit evaluation
Feedback
Additional information on assessment criteria sheets would be helpful
Recommendation
Consider the mix of tools to provide explanations on assessment requirements.
Action Taken
For each assessment task, assessment rubrics, which clearly explained assessment criteria, were provided to supplement the detailed assessment task description and guidance video.
Source: 'Have Your Say' survey
Feedback
The textbook recommended in previous terms is from an organisational science background, and therefore not fully aligned with the rationale of this unit.
Recommendation
It is recommended to reintroduce a better change management textbook in the future.
Action Taken
Nil.
Source: Unit coordinator
Feedback
Assessment support - Despite provision of detailed assessment task descriptions, marking rubrics, and guidance videos, some students struggle to understand assessment requirements and formats.
Recommendation
Where appropriate, provision of exemplar assessments is recommended. Such effort will supplement detailed assessment task descriptions, marking rubrics, and guidance videos already provided in the unit.
Action Taken
Nil.
