Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Online Quiz(zes) 20%
2. Practical and Written Assessment 20%
3. Examination 60%

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
Students struggle in understanding what is expected in the written assignment. Staff observation/reflection Lectures will be pre-recorded and made available to students ahead of time.
Students found the unit to be well-presented and informative. Many students enjoyed the shorter pre-recorded lectures and felt the hand-drawn diagrams aided their learning Unit Evaluations and email This style of presentation will be used in future offerings with the addition of 'live' tutorial sessions
Students would like lecture content availible earlier. Unit Evaluations The previous term's lectures will be provided on the Moodle site. This will aid those students who may want to walk ahead of the schedule.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Describe the detailed anatomy and normal functioning of the major physiological systems of the human body.
  2. Discuss the concepts and processes of homeostatic regulation and feedback within the human body.
  3. Explain the neuronal and hormonal control mechanisms of human body systems.
  4. Describe the interplay of factors involved in normal system function and how these are usually kept within effective operational limits.
