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).

Feedback
Assessment Instructions require further clarity
Recommendation
Ensure Assessment Task description is simplified in instruction. Continue ALC support specific to NURS11162 with strong lecturer input. Ensure ALC resources are available early in the term. Contact at risk students regularly throughout term to monitor progress, encourage engagement, and offer guidance if required. Consider embedding assessment items into unit modules to encourage student engagement
Action Taken
Input by reviewers across multiple layers within SNMSS was adopted to ensure clarity of Assessment task description. Students were well-supported in assessment discussion forum by teaching staff, as well as strong support by the ALC. Follow-up support of students at risk served to promote student confidence and engagement in the unit. Regular team meetings to reflect and evaluate teaching practices.
