ALLH11005 - Anatomy and Physiology for Health Professionals 1
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ALLH11005 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

This unit will offer the students an introduction to human anatomy and physiology, including human body structure and function. There will be a focus on the fundamentals of skeletal, muscular, and neural structures, on how the various structures are linked, and on how this relates to function.

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Online Quiz(zes) 50%
2. Practical Assessment 50%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.

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
Allow very minor spelling mistakes on online quizzes. Student feedback from course evaluations Adopt a policy of allowing very minor spelling mistakes on online quizzes. The reasoning behind this change is to give credit to students who clearly understand the concept being assessed but who accidentally mistyped their answer.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Identify anatomical structures of the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems for the spine and lower quadrant.
  2. Describe the different functions of human anatomy.
  3. Explain the individual variations of human anatomy.
  4. Explain how anatomy and function are interrelated.

Assessment Title Online Quizzes
Task Description

There will be 3 online quizzes:

  • Quiz 1 in Week 3 - covering all content from weeks 1-3
  • Quiz 2 in Week 7 - covering all content from weeks 4-7
  • Quiz 3 in Week 11 - covering all content from weeks 8-11

Students will be able to access the quizzes at specified time periods (check Moodle for details), and will have an allocated time limit to complete each quiz. A fast internet connection is required for students who undertake the quizzes from off campus. Questions will be randomly generated from a question bank, so that the quizzes will appear different for each student.

The 3 quizzes together count for 50% of the overall course mark:

  • Quiz 1 is worth 10% of the overall course mark
  • Quiz 2 is worth 20% of the overall course mark
  • Quiz 3 is worth 20% of the overall course mark
Number of Quizzes 3
Assessment Due Date See 'Task description' above.
