AASB Framework for the Preparation and Presentation of Final Reports (July 2004)
Relevant learning resources will be placed on the online learning hub progressively throughout the semester. Students will need to access this site on a weekly basis, print the materials and bring them to class. COPIES OF MATERIALS WILL NOT BE HANDED OUT IN CLASS
Overview of Assessment
Throughout the semester students will be able to gauge their progress with the completion of and discussion about class exercises. This formative feedback will highlight to students areas in which they may need to do more work to achieve competency.
Assessments may include: short in class exercises, closed book class tests, question and answer activities and assignments.
Tests Students must achieve a mark greater than 50% for each test to pass this course.
Where a student fails a test they will be given an opportunity to resit the test as scheduled. Under these circumstances the maximum marks available will be 50% of the total marks for the assessment.
Inclass Exercises Across the semester each teacher will select five class exercises that will be completed IN class by the student, corrected by the student and then submitted in the same class. It is expected that students will have the pro-forma to complete their work on to receive marks. Of the 5 exercises students will have to submit four exercises to obtain full marks. THERE WILL BE NO ALTERNATIVE CHANCE TO RESUBMIT. STUDENTS MUST ATTEND THE CLASS THEY ARE ENROLLED IN
Students must complete all 3 tests and achieve a mark of greater than 50% in each to achieve an overall pass in this course. Their aggregate mark must then be greater than 50%. If a student fails a test their inclass exercise marks will not be added in the calculation of their final grade
|Inclass Exercises||4x2.5=10 marks||All topics|
|Test 1||30 marks||Topics 1 & 2|
|Test 2||30 marks||Topics 3, 4 & 7|
|Test 3||30 marks||Topics 5, 6 & 8|
