Special assessment requirements
The final mark for this subject will be calculated by an accumulation of marks from each assessment item. In order to pass this unit, students must:
- Attempt all assessment items, including the quizzes, which although not contributing to the final mark, must be completed to pass the unit.
- Pass each of the summative assessment items.
- Obtain an aggregate mark of 50% or greater.
The 150 hours associated with this unit should be distributed over the 13 weeks semester teaching period; therefore you should be spending on average ~12 hours a week on this unit. This time would be used to complete the unit activities (such as module based reading), assessments (such assignments and/or quizzes) as well as reading and participating in online discussion boards.
As this is a fully online unit, participation and engagement in online discussions with your instructor and classmates is an important part of student learning and all students are encouraged to actively engage with this unit. To achieve this, students must participate in the discussion board discussions, providing constructive, interesting, relevant and appropriately prepared posts, and are required to visit the course website daily for important updates and discussion messages. Your participation in online activities will enhance your understanding of the unit content and therefore the quality of your assessment responses. Lack of participation may result in your inability to satisfactorily pass assessment items.
