Assessment Tasks
1 Presentation
Assessment Type
Presentation
Task Description
Internal students will form small groups within their workshop class and will present a topic to their workshop class
during the tutorial. Local lecturers will finalise topics and presentation schedules for internal groups. All group members
must be from the same workshop.
Online students can present individually or collaborate with other Online students if they wish but it is not guaranteed
that other Online students may wish to form groups due to differing locations and other logistical matters. Online
students need to contact the Unit Coordinator before the beginning of Week 3 to discuss how they will complete their
presentations.
A list of possible topic categories will be made available through the assessment specification document. Students
should consider suitable topic areas from these categories. It is not essential to be restricted to this list. Students could
discuss other potential topics with their local lecturer. To achieve high outcomes in this assessment, all students are
encouraged to select innovative, useful and interesting topics that demonstrate their presentation skills and meet the
assessment requirements and marking criteria. The topic and date of the presentation must be approved by the local
lecturer by the end of Week 3. Any students who fail to contact the lecturers or obtain approvals within this time may
not be allowed to present later. This rule will be strictly implemented as last minute requests to schedule or approve
presentations would disrupt the presentations of other students. All internally enrolled students must attend their
scheduled workshops and complete the approval process. Online students must initiate contact with the Unit
Coordinator. It is the responsibility of the students to engage with the lecturers in a timely manner.
Presentations MUST proceed on the allocated day. If one person in the group is NOT present on the day, the other
students MUST proceed with the presentation. This will be taken into account when marking. If a student cannot present
on the allocated day, they will need to apply for an extension AS SOON AS POSSIBLE and they will need to supply
evidence. The application for an extension should be completed BEFORE the allocated date of the presentation. If an
individual student in a group is granted an extension the rest of the group will still have to present on the allocated day.
The individual with an extension may have to present on a different topic as an individual presenter at a later date.
Assessment Due Date
Internal – Week 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 of the term. Presentation materials must be uploaded into Moodle by ALL students (all
group members where relevant) before they deliver their presentation. Online Student – by arrangement with Unit
Coordinator. Last date is the end of Week 9.
Return Date to Students
Internal students presentations will be marked by the local lecturer in workshop and moderated by the Unit Coordinator.
For Online students, the timing of marking will depend on how and when the presentation is completed.

Assessment Criteria
The marking criteria are based on:
speaker/presenter’s appearance and other impressions including behavour during presentations;
presentation structure and content to meet the presentation needs;
referencing, including the use of valid references, citations and referencing style/formatting;
coping with questions and facilitating discussion during and at the end of the presentation;
delivery, including time management;
visual aids, activities and handouts;
target and audience;
All Presentations must be based on the approved topic and use valid sources of reference material. Students must
comply with the University’s referencing guidelines and academic misconduct procedures. Presentations that breach
these conditions could be subjected to academic misconduct charges for all members in the group.
Assessments provide the opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge and skills to achieve the required
standard. To do this, assessment responses need to be both clear and easy to understand. If not, the University cannot
determine that students have demonstrated their knowledge and skills. Assessments will, therefore, be marked
accordingly including the potential for 0 marks where relevant.
Note: students must deliver the presentation on the allocated day to have their assessment marked. Submission of the
file(s) alone is not acceptable as having completed the assessment requirements. Students MUST present their
assessment and submit all materials used in the presentations to receive marks.
Students must create the presentation materials themselves and must not re-use presentations used in previous terms
or for other unit assessments. You may be asked to prove that you have written the presentation yourself or in a team.
You should keep copies of early drafts of your presentation.
For more information, refer to the assessment details and assessment criteria which can be found on the Moodle unit
website.

Assessment Criteria
Portfolio consists of several activities including quizzes and written submissions. Requirements for each activity are
posted on the Moodle unit website.
NO EXTENSIONS can be granted for the Quizzes. If students do NOT complete each Quiz before the due date and time
they will receive 0 marks. Students should ensure that they complete the quizzes ahead of the due date and time to
avoid last minute problems with technology preventing them from completing the Quizzes on time.
All written assessments must correctly focus on the tasks as in the specifications or they will be given 0 mark and no
feedback.
One of the Portfolio items is an in-class supervised assessment for internal students. The format of this assessment
(Portfolio 2) will be available from the beginning of the Term. Students must be present in their scheduled workshop on
the allocated day to complete and submit Portfolio 2. Online students will be contacted by the Unit Coordinator about
completing Portfolio 2 at an allocated time. Late submissions will NOT be accepted for marking. Extensions will be given
in EXCEPTIONAL circumstances only and MUST BE supported by evidence. Students granted an extension may have to
sit an alternative assessment task.
Assessments provide the opportunity for students to demonstrate their knowledge and skills to achieve the required
standard. To do this, assessment responses need to be both clear and easy to understand. If not, the University cannot
determine that students have demonstrated their knowledge and skills. Assessments will, therefore, be marked
accordingly including the potential for 0 marks where relevant.
