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 40%
2. 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: Unit Coordinator self reflection
Feedback
All students scored relatively high marks in the assessment items despite different levels of performance in the group.
Recommendation
Review the assessment tasks and the marking rubrics to ensure appropriate levels of complexity in differentiating between performances against the set criteria.
Action Taken
The assessment tasks and marking rubrics were reviewed and updated.
Source: Have Your say evaluation Unit Coordinator self reflection
Feedback
Zoom attendance was poor among the cohort.
Recommendation
Review the timing of zoom tutorial session(s) to maximize student participation.
Action Taken
The timing of the Zoom drop-in session was switched to the evening to encourage more student participation.
Source: Have Your say evaluation
Feedback
Students found the unit structure and content useful.
Recommendation
Maintain the current unit structure and content as students found it useful in providing them with transferable skills applicable to their independent practice.
Action Taken
The unit structure and the main topics were maintained.
Source: Unit coordinator reflection
Feedback
Despite different levels of performance in the group and updating of the scoring guides and assessment tasks following the last delivery of the unit, the students still scored relatively high marks in the Case study assessment.
Recommendation
Review and alter the assessment tasks and related rubrics for the Case study assessment to ensure that they are at the appropriate levels of complexity in differentiating between performances against the set criteria in the future iteration of the unit.
Action Taken

Feedback
The Portfolio assessment needs to be modified to address the new requirements for entry to practice set by the accrediting body, Medical Radiation Practitioners Board of Australia (MRPBA).
Recommendation
Amend the assessment tasks for the Portfolio assessment to address the new requirements for entry to practice set by the accrediting body, Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (MRPBA).
Action Taken
Nil.
Source: Have your say student evaluation
Feedback
Students felt that the unit supported them in preparing for graduate job interviews and helped them in further building up their CV for a graduate radiographer role.
Recommendation
Adapt the current unit content with further enhancement to job preparation and application where needed in future iterations of the unit so that students are better supported in their preparation and transition into the workforce.
Action Taken
Nil.
