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, 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: 'Have your say'
Feedback
Students would prefer oral presentations and feedback earlier in the term because the last week of term has a lot of assessment items in other units and earlier feedback would assist with study for the final examination.
Recommendation
Oral Presentations for ORAL12005 will be held earlier in the term as a result of consultation with other unit coordinators and feedback will therefore be provided to students earlier.
Action Taken
Due to the public holiday in week 12 and other lecture and assessment requirements including barrier exams, it was necessary for the oral presentations to be held in week 12. Informal feedback was provided to students on an individual basis prior to the oral presentations.
Source: 'Have your say'
Feedback
Students would like more information as to a break down of what is required in sim lab tasks and self reflective journal.
Recommendation
Following discussion involving all pre-clinical supervisors, more information on what is required will be provided to students on Moodle and in the sim lab pre clinical sessions.
Action Taken
More information on what is required was provided to students on Moodle and in sim lab sessions.
Source: 'Have your say'
Feedback
Students would like 'writing clinical notes' included in sim lab activities in ORAL12002 as well as ORAL12005.
Recommendation
Writing of clinical notes as a sim lab task will be included in ORAL12002 in 2018.
Action Taken
Writing of clinical notes was included in each sim lab session. Students took it in turns to write the clinical notes for that session on the white board for class discussion.

Feedback
Students feel they shouldn't have to pay for teeth models or need more notice regarding costs.
Recommendation
Students have been advised in term 2 year 1 of the Bachelor of Oral Health course of the costs and payment requirements set out by CQUniversity for teeth models for terms 1 and 2 in their second year of study.

Feedback
Students feel they require more information on how to reproduce dental morphology in restorations, including instruments and technique for different dental materials.
Recommendation
As the theory component on this is provided in ORAL12003, following consultation with other unit coordinators, more information will be provided to students in this unit. Students will practise reproducing dental morphology on pre-prepared bench top cavity preparations and 'Dentaprac' models prior to practising on teeth models in dental manikins in the simulation laboratory as a task in ORAL12002.
Action Taken
Students practised reproducing dental morphology on pre-prepared bench top cavity preparations and 'Dentaprac' models prior to practising on teeth models in dental manikins in the simulation laboratory.

Feedback
Making sure what is taught in clinic and sim lab is the same- supervisors giving the same information.
Recommendation
Correlation of information provided by supervisors in the clinic and sim lab should be improved through a supervisor training session and two Bachelor of Oral Health planning days as well as by holding regular staff meetings throughout the year.
