LEARNING TASKS AND ASSESSMENT: It is emphasised that this course requires a significant commitment outside of formal class contact.

In addition, students may be required to complete an assignment, test or examination. In order to pass this course, students must accumulate a minimum of 50% of the total marks available and attempt all pieces of work. You are strongly advised to attempt ALL assessment tasks. Students who do not submit a task(s) or fail a task(s) in the semester will be identified as a ‘student at risk’ of unsatisfactory academic progress (outlined in 1.19 in the Course Description) and will be directed to the School’s Intervention Program. Students who encounter difficulties or who are otherwise concerned regarding their progress should consult their lecturer. Assessment criteria set out the details by which your performance in each task will be judged. This information will give you a clear and explicit understanding of the standards you are expected to achieve relative to the marks awarded.
