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 evaluation survey
The text book is very detailed and goes past what is needed for the assignment.
Review the text book for its depth and relevance to the unit and its usefulness as a resource for student life long learning.
Action Taken
The core readings include Acts and case law. While some students find this reading ‘digestible’ others find the text book easier to follow and use it as a means to set the context. Where possible the study guide will provide the core reading with the reliance on the text book reduced, yet still available.
Source: Student feedback shared via online tutorials.
Some students struggled to complete reading all the Acts and cases discussed in this unit.
The core Acts and case law readings will be clearly identified in the study guide. Access to supporting Acts and cases will still be made available however they will be identified as 'further' or 'extension' readings. 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.
'Assessment requirements' was the lowest rating category in the student evaluations. The lower level of satisfaction is most likely due to changes to the major assignment.
In 2020 further information regarding the assessment tasks will be shared to provide more scaffolding. Assignment exemplars may also be shared.
