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

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Report 50%
2. Examination 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%).

Students found this unit very relevant to their career path development
More case study materials will be given the unit's Moodle site.

Source: Unit Evaluation Survey
More detailed information requires for the written assignment.
More case study materials relevant to the Assignment 1 will be given in the Unit's Moodle site.
Action Taken
The assignment has been modestly changed. Details have been updated but further support will be provided through the assignment brief and tutorials.
Source: Discussions with students during online tutorials.
Some students struggled to complete the readings. Property management requires a broad understanding of property and what drives value. As such the course covers a range of topics and the quantum of reading can appear daunting.
The coordinator will continue to refine the module learning resources. Alternative learning tools and practical case studies will be applied where they can enhance learning. Future students will be strongly encouraged to engage in the unit materials regularly and attend the weekly tutorials. They will be advised that it is difficult to cover more than one module a week.
Action Taken
Source: Student evaluation scores and discussions with students during online tutorials.
The lowest scoring categories in student evaluations were related to assessment requirements. The lower level of satisfaction is most likely due to the introduction of a new major assignment. The new assignment had relatively little scaffolding and there were no examples from previous years to share.
In 2020 further information regarding the assessment tasks will be shared to provide more scaffolding. Assignment exemplars will also be shared.
