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%).

Previous Feedback

Term 2 - 2020 : The overall satisfaction for students in the last offering of this course was 5 (on a 5 point Likert scale), based on a 28.57% response rate.

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 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
The recommendations were adopted. While one student in 2020 said 'the course content is full on for the first 5 weeks' others said the material was as expected.
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.
Action Taken
The recommendations were adopted, and student evaluation scores increased with positive formative feedback provided.

‘Although study guide questions and answers are discussed and provided in tutorials and recordings, it may be of benefit to upload a short answer sheet to aid in study for the final exam’.
The virtual classes, where questions and answers from the study guide are discussed, will remain the primary means to discuss more detailed concepts. The weekly quiz (optional) and discussion forums will be used to share answers of a shorter, less detailed nature.
