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.

Feedback Source Recommendation
Online tutorials were of benefit to students Have your say survey Increase the number of Online tutorials to enable students to ask questions and be shown the answer.
Too many folio exercises Have your say survey Review the Pass/Fail requirement of the folio exercises and possibly allow students to choose how many folio activities they do. However specific help on Assignment tasks will not be given as the assignments are meant to be done solely by each individual student without help from staff or other students.
Course videos were good and showed step by step instructions. Have your say survey Review the current online videos and add more where needed.
Assessment items were returned late Have your say survey Staff will monitor and ensure the timely return of feedback to students for future offerings.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Produce freehand sketches to visually define engineering artefacts

IT Resources

You will need access to the following IT resources:
  • CQUniversity Student Email
  • Internet
  • Unit Website (Moodle)
  • A4 digital scanner - To allow online submission of freehand sketching assessments
  • AutoCAD Software. A free student edition is available to download from www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/autocad. You will need to register/’create an account’ to get the free student version which is valid while you are a student, there is also a 30 day trial version but this only lasts 30 days. During registration use your CQU student email (xxxxxxxx@cqumail.com) and if required enter the Education Institution/School as: "Central Queensland University"; Faculty as: “Engineering” and website as: "www.cqu.edu.au". You should receive an email from Autodesk requesting account activation, follow these instructions. If you receive an error or the web browser hangs, try re-creating the account with the same information. Once your account is activated, sign in on the web page: www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/autocad. Then follow the prompts to download and install AutoCAD 2017. Ensure your computer meets the AutoCAD 2017 system requirements. You are most welcome to download and use older versions like AutoCAD 2014, 2015 and 2016, they have slightly different system requirements but have almost identical interface and functionality. It is advisable to download the software many weeks prior to term to ensure your computer is able to run the software. The download is quite large at ~5GB so if you have access to a CQUniversity campus you can use the free wifi to download the software, library staff should be able to direct you to help in this matter.
All submissions for this unit must use the Harvard (author-date) referencing style (details can be obtained here). For further information, see the Assessment Tasks below.

1 Written Assessment

Assessment Title Drawing Folio
Task Description

You need to pass the Drawing Folio to pass the Unit.

The Drawing Folio comprises of all the weekly sketching and AutoCAD Folio Activities done during the unit. The folio activities are listed each week on the Moodle site. It is worthwhile doing a good attempt at the folio activities as it helps you complete the assignments and if at the end of the unit you are on the border line between two final grades the Drawing Folio can be used to determine if the higher grade should be awarded. The Folio Activities should be completed week by week, not at the end of term.

The presentation of the Drawing Folio is not as crucial as an assignment as it is recognised you will make mistakes during your learning. Rough sketches and partial attempts of questions are acceptable and will add to your grade. The question numbers should be clearly displayed on any free hand sketches or AutoCAD drawings.

Drawing Folio Submission

- A Drawing Folio progress submission is required 1pm Monday Week 5. Submit your Drawing Folio to date to enable the teaching team to provide some feedback to let you know how you are going on this task.

- The completed Final Drawing Folio is to be submitted by the following due date.

The Progress and Final Drawing Folio Submissions must include:

  • A single pdf file, containing the Folio Activities freehand sketches and AutoCAD drawings;
  • plus a single zip file, containing all the AutoCAD *.dwg files shown in the previous pdf file. (The AutoCAD *.dwg files should be suitably named with respect to the question numbers)

In the Drawing Folio submission you can include any initial or failed attempts of the folio exercises, and any additional drawings done during the unit. Please ensure these are labelled and named accordingly.

Assessment Due Date Review/Exam Week Monday (05-Jun-2017) 01:00 PM AEST
Return Date to Students The Drawing Folio will be returned after the CQU Certification of Grades.
Weighting Pass/Fail
Assessment Criteria

To pass Drawing Folio you must satisfactorily complete at least 50% of the Folio Activities for each topic as listed on the Moodle site. You will get some credit for partial attempts of the activities. The presentation and accuracy of the folio drawing activities are not as crucial as an assignment as it is recognised you will make mistakes during your learning. The Folio Activities are seen as ways to stimulate your own learning, whereas the assignments are used to assess you. The assessment criteria for the assignments (repeated below) can be used as a guide for the Drawing Folio:

  1. Production of neat and accurate freehand engineering sketches.
  2. Production of accurate AutoCAD drawing files complying with AS1100 drawing practice.
Conditions Minimum mark or grade - 50%. Also: you need to pass the Drawing Folio to pass the Unit.
Referencing Style Harvard (author-date)
Submission Online

Progress Drawing Folio Due: Monday Week 5. Final Drawing Folio Due: Monday Review Week. Submit via the Moodle site: 1) a single pdf file containing the required freehand sketches and AutoCAD drawings. 2) Also submit a single zip file containing the AutoCAD *.dwg files.
