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 50%
2. Written Assessment 50%

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, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Source: Student feedback
Feedback
Some students felt there was insufficiently detailed marking criteria provided.
Recommendation
In the next course iteration, additional exemplars and examples of previous feedback will be provided in moodle.
Action Taken
Exemplars were provided demonstrating exactly what was required.
Source: Student feedback
Feedback
There was a lack of clarity over the marking criteria for the second assessment piece.
Recommendation
Provide annotated exemplars for next years students and a clearer marking rubric.
Action Taken
This assessment requires students to review other students' work. This has been problematic in the past with some students, and as a result, exemplars were provided for this course offering to demonstrate good assessment responses. It was decided not to introduce a marking rubric because of the nature of the assessment piece students are required to develop. However, students were provided an overview of how to undertake this activity in the news and discussion forums and teaching staff held one-on-one tutorials with students on a regular basis. Additional exemplars will be provided in future offerings to further enhance student learning.
Source: Have Your Say survey
Feedback
Students found the assessments interesting and engaging, but advised that more detail could be provided on how to approach some parts of the assessment.
Recommendation
Additional exemplars will be provided in future offerings to further enhance student learning.
Action Taken
Nil.
