Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 40%
2. Group Work 20%
3. On-campus Activity Pass/Fail
4. Practical Assessment 40%

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
Content taught within the Pathological Population learning module of this course has been already covered within the Neurological and Cardiorespiratory (NCR) course. Have your say surveys, feedback during class and email communication. The overall course structure will be reviewed prior to the commencement of the Term 1 2017 teaching period and the ongoing inclusion of this learning module will be evaluated in collaboration with teaching staff from the NCR courses.
The self and peer assessment survey (SPA) completed for the Group Work Assignment modified each individual group member's total grade for this assessment task rather than a proportion of the grade, resulting in a large variation of grades between members in some groups. Have your say surveys, feedback during class and email communication. The ongoing inclusion of SPA surveys for the Group Work Assessment task will be reviewed and will likely be modified to affect a smaller proportion of the grade rather than the total overall grade.
The inclusion of guest lecturers, patient interactions and a visit to a rest home were highly valued and noted to enhance student learning for these specific learning modules. Have your say surveys, feedback during class and email communication. Input from specialist guest lecturers, and the inclusion of patient interactions and site visits will continue to be included as resources allow within this course.
Only a small number of readings from the textbook were recommended to aid specific course content. Have your say surveys, feedback during class and email communication. The recommended readings will be reviewed in conjunction with the overall course content, with the aim to integrate a greater number of relevant textbook readings for weekly content.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Discuss pathological processes, symptomology, medical and pharmacological management, clinical course and prognosis for complex clinical conditions and pathologies.
  2. Perform a comprehensive assessment that extends across all domains of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) framework.
  3. Design, demonstrate and implement a safe rehabilitation programme for a specific clinical scenario that applies a variety of exercise techniques with appropriate progression and modification for that scenario.
  4. Critically appraise contemporary evidence from the literature to inform interventions for complex clinical conditions and pathologies.
  5. Relate the role of Physiotherapy to the management of complex conditions and pathologies using both an interprofessional and patient-centred approach.

2 Group Work

Assessment Title Group Work
Task Description

Students will be randomly assigned to small groups to develop an educational patient resource that could be used in clinical Physiotherapy practice. This patient resource must be a written resource and can be submitted in the form of either a pamphlet, poster or booklet. Students will choose a topic from a list provided at the start of term. Each group must decide on their chosen topic and have this checked by the Unit Coordinator by the end of Week 3.

The developed resource must include patient targeted education, techniques for self management of their clinical condition and exercise rehabilitation. Intervention and educational choices must be informed by relevant evidence based literature. This developed resource is due on Friday 2nd of June, Week 12.

Each group will then present their developed resource to their peers. Presentations will be 10 minutes, including time for questions. Groups can choose to utilize power point, white boards or posters to present this information. During this presentation students must discuss and reference the evidence based literature that has informed their intervention choices. Presentations will take place during the examination period and may be scheduled outside of usual teaching hours. The confirmed assessment date and a presentation timetable will be released prior to Week 12. Each group's presentation will be peer assessed by another group, which will contribute to 5% of the total grade for this assessment task.

Students will also be required to self assess both their individual participation and their peers’ participation in this assessment item by completing a self and peer assessment survey (SPA).

Referencing should follow the APA format.

Policies and Procedures:

1. The CQUniversity Assessment of Coursework Procedures policy (for centrally timetabled examinations) applies to all assessment items in this unit.
