Assessment Task Weighting

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
'Thank you, Nicole, for your feedback. Although I found this unit quite challenging, I have learnt so much and have come away with more resilience as a writer, with more confidence and some new skills that I can now draw on in my future writing endeavours.'
Recommendation
Students do find this unit challenging in that there is an emphasis on the application of experimental writing techniques. This means that students must move beyond the basic application of creative writing techniques toward innovation. That said, these challenges do present students with invaluable experiences including, but not limited to, resilience, new skills development, and innovating on form.
Action Taken
The UC has maintained a commitment to developing student resilience as writers by encouraging innovation within creative writing practice.
