The data in the above table's "Estimated Time on Task" column is automatically generated, and potentially confusing. The times given for the tests (2 hours each) are just estimates; for each student, this will depend on how many times the test is attempted. The times allocated to activity participation (each 0 hours) should be ignored.
HURDLES: All assessment tasks are hurdle requirements to pass this unit. These can be different for internal and external students. Details will be provided on the iLearn page for the unit.
ATTENDANCE and PARTICIPATION: Even if you are enrolled in online or special circumstances mode, you are required to engage with the lecture material each week. This will be monitored via short weekly participation quizzes; see the iLearn site for details. Please contact the unit convenor as soon as possible if you have difficulty completing any of these participation quizzes on time. There may be alternatives available to make up the work. If there are circumstances that mean you will miss a participation quiz, you can apply for Special Consideration via ask.mq.edu.au.
There is no participation requirement for Practicals or SGTAs for students enrolled in online or special circumstances mode (although you should work through this material to develop your understanding). Every student should enrol in a Practical class and an SGTA class. You may enrol in a class on campus if you plan to attend in person. Otherwise, please enrol in the online classes.
TEST SUBMISSION: Each statistics module's tests will be online, via the iLearn page. For some of the tests, multiple attempts are allowed; in this case, the highest mark counts toward the student's grade. For each statistics module, at least 50% of the available marks must be scored in order to pass the unit.
A student who does not pass any statistics module by its deadline will fail the unit, unless Special Consideration is granted. If you miss a test deadline due to circumstances out of your control, you may be eligible to apply for Special Consideration via ask.mq.edu.au.
EMPLOYABILITY SKILLS: This unit has been designed so that 20% of student workload is allocated to employability skills. The employability skills modules are not graded, but the modules are hurdle tasks: you must complete the activities as outlined in order to pass this unit. Some activities will be automatically graded, but all will ask you to apply the modules to your work in this unit, general university studies and your personal goals. You will be informed of any due dates, but most modules can be completed in your own time. See your iLearn unit for detailed information on how to complete the skills modules.
FINAL EXAM POLICY: There is no final exam for this unit.
