CHIR12004 - Neuromusculoskeletal Anatomy 1
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for CHIR12004 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 builds on the basic anatomy taught in Human Body Systems 1 and 2. You will further develop your knowledge of anatomy and physiology, which will include studies in gross anatomy, embryology and histology, clinical and living anatomy. You will integrate this, where appropriate, with other basic sciences. An emphasis will be placed on clinical anatomy of the limbs and trunk.

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Online Quiz(zes) 15%
2. Practical Assessment 35%
3. Examination 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
Review assessment self-reflection, student feedback, 2015 recommendation Discussion within the chiropractic discipline regarding possible assessment choices.
Buy more anatomical models and bones, especially for Brisbane campus due to large student numbers. self-reflection, student feedback Submit a request to the School Technical Services Manager for additional resources on the Brisbane campus as the anticipated increase in enrolment necessitates the need for more resources.
Attain institutional access to an online anatomy learning resource eg visible body, Kenhub self-reflection, student feedback Submit a request to library regarding availability or access to online anatomy learning resources for staff and students.
Provide exposure to either prosected specimens or plastinates. self-reflection, student feedback Consider introduction of student access to one or more of the following resources: a. Organise visits to anatomy museums b. Organise wet lab tutorials at an appropriate institution c. Organise access to plastinates, currently located at Rockhampton and Bundaberg campuses.

Assessment Title Online Quizzes
Task Description

There will be three online quizzes administered via Moodle. Each will be available for approximately 1 week. There will be no extension due to unforeseen technical problems or Internet connectivity, so please do not leave it to to the end of the week to do it. Each online quiz will be based on the material covered in lectures, tutorials and practical classes in the weeks as outlined below. Students will be allowed one attempt only for each online quiz, which must be completed within the allotted time.

  • Online Quiz 1 covers anatomy of the upper limb (i.e. material form Weeks 1-5) and is worth 7.5%
  • Online Quiz 2 covers anatomy of the lower limb (i.e. material form Weeks 6-9) and is worth 7.5%
  • Online Quiz 3 covers anatomy of the trunk wall (i.e. material form Weeks 10-11) and is worth 5%
Number of Quizzes 3
Frequency of Quizzes Other
Assessment Due Date Online quiz 1 is due by April 15, 18.00; Quiz 2 by May 15, 18.00 and Quiz 3 by June 3rd, 18.00.
Return Date to Students Results with feedback for each online quiz will be released immediately after their respective due dates.
Weighting 15%
Assessment Criteria

As each question in the quizzes are objective in style (e.g. multiple choice), answers will be automatically marked as either correct or incorrect. Some questions will require you to demonstrate a knowledge of facts, while others will require the use of interpretive or analytical skills.

2 Practical Assessment

Assessment Title Practical Assessment
Task Description

This will be based on the material covered in lectures, practical classes and assigned homework from Weeks 1-11. Students will be required to identify anatomical structures on models and images, and answer brief theoretical questions regarding the identified anatomical structures. All answers will be written down on a purpose-made answer-sheet. The assessment will take approximately one hour.

Students will rotate through a number of stations, each of which will focus on a specific body region.

More details will be available on this subject's Moodle site.

Assessment Due Date The test will be conducted during your designated practical class in week 12.
Return Date to Students Marks will be available within 1 week of the exam.
Weighting 35%
Assessment Criteria

Marks will be allocated based on:

1. Accuracy of the answer

2. Specificity of the answer (eg head of radius, NOT radius nor head)

3. Spelling accuracy: Either Australian, UK or USA spelling will be acceptable. If spelling is not completely correct, but is phonetically correct, you will receive 75% of the allocated mark for that question.

For example, consider a question worth 1 mark, for which the answer is scaphoid. However, you spell it scaphoyd or scafoid. You will be given 0.75 marks, rather than 1.0 mark.

Conditions Minimum mark or grade - 50
Referencing Style Harvard (author-date)
Submission Hard copy

The test will be conducted in class time.
