Assessment Process


In each 6 credit point unit of study, students will be required to complete the equivalent to:

  • 5,000-6,000 words of formal, written assignments.
  • One 15 minute presentation.

This is a guide only – the types and proportions of assessment will differ across units of study according to disciplinary learning needs and outcomes:

  • Continuous assessment will be conducted in face-to-face units of study as well as examinations, where warranted.
  • Assessment in online units of study will typically consist of participation in online discussions and learning activities (15%), an individual assignment (45%) and a group assignment (40%).
  • Assessment in supervised units of study will be based on the guidelines for 6 credit point units of study and designed to assess unit of study learning outcomes. Students will be required to discuss assessment with their supervisor and keep a log book/learning diary.
