Assessment Tasks Description
- Weekly Quizzes: Eleven (11) quizzes: 10 minute quizzes to be completed online in WEEKS 2 - 12 that will test lecture material of the previous week. See the schedule above for details on content that is covered by looking at the previous week’s lecture content. The format will be multiple choice questions or fill in the missing word/s. Each quiz will open on Monday at 8am and close on Sunday at 11pm of that week. The first quiz will be posted on Monday of week 2. There will be absolutely no opportunity to submit a quiz after the closing time as answers are released at that point. If you have technical difficulties, email your answers to your convenor and they will be manually marked. If you email these after the closing time, they will not be marked. The quizzes will have a time limit of 10 minutes, and there will be only one submission per student. The resultant mark will be an AVERAGE of the 11 quiz marks (please note, NOT best x of 11).
- OSCE: These will assess your competency in performing the neurological examination. Details will be given on iLearn and in the tutorials nearer to the date
- Final examination: This will cover the content for the entire semester. It tests your knowledge of the theory, and the ability to connect that knowledge to real life situations (e.g., case studies, clinical presentations). It will consist of a 2 hour written exam with multiple choice questions, short answer questions and case studies.
You must attend and participate in at least 18 of the 21 weekly tutorial classes to pass this unit. Student roll will be taken.
You must attend the class in which you are enrolled. You must not exchange your class time without consultation with the convenor. In special circumstances, if you are unable to attend your assigned tutorial in any week, you may request attendance at the alternative session on that day, through written request to the unit convener. This allowance may be used on a maximum of 2 occasions.
The Semester 1 University Examination period is from: 7 - 25 June, 2021
You are expected to present yourself for examination at the time and place designated in the University examination timetable. The timetable will be available in draft form approximately eight weeks before the commencement of the examinations and in final form approximately four weeks before the commencement of the examinations:
The only exception to not sitting an examination at the designated time is because of documented illness or unavoidable disruption. In these circumstances you may wish to consider applying for special consideration. The University’s Special Consideration Policy can be found at: https://staff.mq.edu.au/work/strategy-planning-and-governance/university-policies-and-procedures/policies/special-consideration. Information can also be found at https://students.mq.edu.au/study/my-study-program/special-consideration
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 supplementary examination is granted as a result of special consideration, the examination will be scheduled after the conclusion of the official examination period.
If you receive special consideration for the final exam, a supplementary exam will be scheduled in the interval between the regular exam period and the start of the next session. By making a special consideration application for the final exam you are declaring yourself available for a resit during the supplementary examination period and will not be eligible for a second special consideration approval based on pre-existing commitments. Please ensure you are familiar with the policy prior to submitting an application. You can check the supplementary exam information page on FSE101 in iLearn (bit.ly/FSESupp) for dates, and approved applicants will receive an individual notification one week prior to the exam with the exact date and time of their supplementary examination.
NOTE: Supplementary exams may be in a different format to the exam set in the normal examination period.
You are advised that it is Macquarie University policy not to set early examinations for individuals or groups of students. You are expected to ensure that you are available until the end of the teaching semester that is the final day of the official examination period.
