  • Assessment

    The University's policy on Assessment for Coursework Programs is based on the following four principles:

    1. Assessment must encourage and reinforce learning.
    2. Assessment must enable robust and fair judgements about student performance.
    3. Assessment practices must be fair and equitable to students and give them the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned.
    4. Assessment must maintain academic standards.

    Assessment Summary
    Discussion Forum Activity 40%
    Lesson Plan Design 60%
    Assessment Detail
    Contribute to discussion forums throughout the course. There will be nine assessable opportunities to contribute and your assessment will be based on your overall contributions. All are weighted equally. You'll receive feedback on your first post which will identify your areas in which you can improve and a final overall grade. I will be involved in discussion but will allow you to make contributions first.


    Choose a lesson plan you've developed or based on a lesson plan template for your subject area.
    Identify an online resource you will use for student learning and engagement. This resource could be a video, a game or anything you find appropriate. Build an in-class activity around this resource and create clear instructions for how to use this resource for teaching (1 page).
    Create a 1 minute maximum length video that will introduce any online/tech based tools/apps necessary for student learning. This is aimed at your student so THEY know how to use the technology you select.
    Create an exit ticket using electronic surveys/quizzes (5 questions including at least 1 multiple choice questions and 1 short answer question) to assess student learning, e.g. KahootLinks to an external site., Google formsLinks to an external site., SocrativeLinks to an external site..
    Make sure you add the technology/online/blended/flipped components of the lesson into the lesson plan to indicate when you would introduce the resources you developed (items 2-4).
    Upload/add items 2-4 and the annotated lesson plan to a Google Classroom (may not be available if you are based in China) as if you are teaching your students from it. You can find some instructions from Google hereLinks to an external site..
    Submit the Google Classroom codeLinks to an external site. and make sure you check the access for your classroom.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
