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
Assessment items to be returned more quickly.
Recommendation
A new full-time UC will be in place for 2018 and will ensure that student assessment will be returned in a timely manner.
Action Taken
A new UC was appointed but the marking was allocated to a casual marker without discipline qualifications. The time allocated to the marker was all used up after marking assessment 1. This caused the marker significant distress as she did not have time allocated to engage with the content. Marking was extremely difficult for her due to lack of payment to engage in the unit content. this problem is easily resolved by paying the marker to engage with the unit content. This would be approximately 7 hours per week.

Feedback
Unclear and too many assignment questions
Recommendation
The unit questions will be changed and the assessments be reduced from 3 to 2.
Action Taken
Nil.
