General Assessment Information
Grade descriptors and other information concerning grading are contained in the Macquarie University Grading Policy, which is available at:http://www.mq.edu.au/policy/docs/grading/policy.html
To pass this unit, students must demonstrate sufficient evidence of achievement of the learning outcomes.
Further details for each assessment task will be available on iLearn including marking rubrics.
All final grades in the Bachelor of Clinical Science are determined by a grading committee and are not the sole responsibility of the Unit Convenor.
Students will be awarded one of these grades plus a Standardised Numerical Grade (SNG). The SNG is not necessarily a summation of the individual assessment components. The final grade and SNG that are awarded reflect the corresponding grade descriptor in the Grading Policy.
