There will be three online Quizzes: Quiz 1 conducted in Week 5; Quiz 2 - in Week 11 and Quiz 3 - in Week 13. Each Quiz typically consists of around 10 questions (multiple choice, matching, T&F) on the theory of the designated weeks, and you will be given around 12 mins to complete each quiz. You will only be allowed one attempt at each question and one attempt for the whole quiz. The Quiz will become available on the Friday evening of the allocated week (e.g. Quiz 1 opens on Fri of Week 5) and will stay open for one week for you to complete in your own time (i.e. Quiz 1 will close on Fri of Week 6, at 5pm). Late attempts will not be accepted. Feedback will be provided once the quiz has closed (i.e. for Quiz 1 feedback will be given in Week 7). Quiz 1 is based on the topics studied in weeks 1 throughout 5 (inclusive), i.e. it is based on the upper limb topics. Quiz 2 is based on the lower limb topics (weeks 6-10). Quiz 3 is based on the vertebral column and back content (weeks 11-12). The value of Quizzes 1 and 2 is 4% (each) towards the final grade, and Quiz 3 contributes 2%. The schedule of quizzes is included into the timetable, which can be found on iLearn.
Practical examinations, the Prac Exam 1 in Week 6 and Prac Exam 2 in Week 13, focus on practical identifications of anatomical structures. Therefore, typically these tests are held in the usual scheduled practical laboratory classes (i.e. in the wet laboratory). Students will be warned of any changes in the timetable or location of these tests. Each spot test assesses students' ability to identify correctly anatomical structures on human remains, bones, models, medical images, and surface anatomy photographs. Typically, there are around 15-20 stations with several identifications in each. Some relevant theoretical questions may also be included. The scope of Prac Exam 1 is on the practical knowledge achieved during the first five weeks of the semester (week 1 throughout to week 5, inclusive; i.e. gross anatomy of the upper limb), and Prac Exam 2 assesses the practical knowledge relevant to weeks 6 throughout to week 12 (gross anatomy of the back and lower limbs). The value of Prac Exam 1 is 20% and of Prac Exam 2 - 30% towards the final mark for the unit.
Students must attend the class they are enrolled in, unless permission has been granted by the Campus Well Being and Disability Services. Students with a pre-existing disability/health condition or prolonged adverse circumstances may be eligible for ongoing assistance and support. Such support is governed by other policies and may be sought and coordinated through Campus Wellbeing and Support Services. If a practical exam is missed a supplementary exam will only be considered under the Special Consideration policy (https://students.mq.edu.au/study/my-study-program/special- consideration). Applications for special consideration should be submitted online within 5 days of the missed assessment (see: www.ask.mq.edu.au).
Final Theory Examination
This examination is held during the formal examination period, at the end of the semester. Its value is 40% towards the final mark. The examination is based on the entire content studied throughout the term covering gross anatomy of the limbs and back. The format of this paper comprises multiple choice and short answer questions, including clinical cases and problem-solving. A typical structure of the examination paper includes around 60-70 multiple choice questions (answers to be filled in the automated marking sheets) and several (e.g. three) short answer questions (answers to be written in the answer booklet provided). The content of this examination is aligned with the learning outcomes for the unit and all the learning and teaching activities that students participate in throughout the semester. There will be no identification tasks in the final theory examination. Special Consideration procedures are as described above.
