Exam Feedback and Performance

Taking the time to reflect on your exam performance can make a huge difference to how you approach future assessment. This process of self‐assessment can enable you to evaluate your own work, and to identify the areas in which you may need to improve. Feedback on your performance in exams is provided in two stages in the Faculty of Information Technology:

Stage 1
Exam Summary Feedback - available on your Moodle site once official results are released.

Stage 2
Exam/final assessment feedback - you may apply to get feedback about your exam/final assessment.

Stage 3

If after completing the first two stages (viewed the unit summary feedback and getting your exam/final assessment feedback) - you still require more information about your performance you may submit a written request for further feedback from your Chief Examiner. The written request must outline:

  • what feedback has been received thus far and why it is considered inadequate to support your learning
  • the steps you have taken to obtain additional feedback; and/or
  • any exceptional circumstances that have prevented you from accessing all available feedback.

It is important to note that where your request is assessed as non-specific or lacking in substance, the Chief Examiner (or nominee) may refer you back to the Unit Summary Feedback - provided on Moodle following the release of results.


Stage 2

You can apply to view your scheduled final assessment responses and marking guide for the purpose of your own personal learning.

Please note the following conditions of receiving feedback:

  • All fail grade examinations have already been verified in accordance with University and faculty procedures.
  • Academic staff will not enter into negotiation over final exam marks.
  • Students must not make a copy of the assessment responses or marking notes in any form, e.g. screenshot, photograph, copy by hand. Failure to observe these rules could result in disciplinary action.
  • A request for viewing/feedback is independent from a request for a correction of mark. If after viewing your assessment responses and receiving feedback on your performance in the final assessment you believe a marking error has been made, the University procedure (refer to page 6. Item 5. Student requests for correction of their mark due to an error) must be followed.

Exam scripts are normally destroyed six months after the release of results for the unit.
