Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Online Quiz(zes) 10%
2. Written Assessment 40%
3. Written 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.

Assessment Title Domain evaluation
Task Description

This assessment task requires you to evaluate the aspects of accident investigation and forensics unique to air, rail, road and industrial safety.

At the end of each of the air, rail, road and industrial modules you are required to:

  • access accident reports from the specific domain; and
  • access any public accident databases relative to the domains (links to some useful sources of information will be provided in Moodle)

and respond to the following:

  • What are the unique characteristics of this domain in relation to laws, technologies, operation and hazards?
  • What agencies are responsible for regulation and investigation in the domain?
  • Where and how are accidents reported in this domain? What are the key definitions that define accident reporting in this domain?
  • What procedures and methods are prescribed/recommended in this domain?
  • What accident investigation/forensic methods are used that are unique to this domain?

Please note this assignment will be submitted as four individual submissions, one for each domain.

Each submission should be approximately 1000 words.

3 Written Assessment

Assessment Title Domain comparison
Task Description

This assessment task requires you to compare and contrast the domains of air safety, rail safety, road safety and industrial safety.

This assessment builds on the understandings derived in Assessment task 2 - Domain Evaluation.

Drawing on the reports accessed, your learning and any additional material, respond to the following:

1. Compare and contrast the reports for each domain in relation to effectiveness in

  • understanding what happened
  • communicating why it happened
  • explaining methods of analysis
  • enabling the reader to reach the same conclusions as the author/s
  • providing recommendations that are directly linked to the analysis and conclusions

2. Compare and contrast the domain investigation framework as a tool for domain learning and accident prevention.

You must ensure that you use examples from the reports within your discussion and use current, relevant literature to support your arguments.
