Final assessment and Exam performance and feedback

Reflecting on your final assessment or exam performance can make a big difference to how you approach future assessment. The process of self‐assessment can enable you to evaluate your work and to identify areas where you need to improve. Feedback on your performance in exams is provided in stages:

  • Stage 1
    Unit Summary Feedback – general exam/final assessment 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 Malaysia Campus Unit Coordinator. 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 Malaysia Campus Unit Coordinator (or nominee) may refer you back to the Unit Summary Feedback - provided on Moodle following the release of results.

Stage 2

Due to the current situation, we are unable to offer face-to-face exam/final assessment viewing sessions. However, you may wish to apply for the following opportunity to view your exam/final assessment performance.

The viewing of exam scripts will take place in Weeks 1 and 2 of the following semester.

The primary objective of allowing you to view your exam script is:

‘to provide academic feedback to the student on their exam performance, enabling them to understand where they went wrong and to thereby improve their future learning.’

This feedback will take place in a Zoom meeting, and maybe individual or group based where similar feedback can be provided. For security reasons, you will not be able to view your individual script in this period. Instead, you will be provided with verbal feedback on your performance, including any areas of strength and weakness, and you will be able to ask questions about your performance on the assessment.

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.
  • A request for feedback is independent of a request for re-marking. If after receiving feedback on your performance in the final assessment you believe a marking error has been made, the Faculty’s re-marking procedure must be followed.

Timing of feedback:

  • As a general rule, a maximum of ten minutes will be allocated to receive feedback.
  • Feedback is provided under academic supervision in the first two weeks of the following semester at a time specified by the School/staff.
  • Feedback on deferred or supplementary assessments will be scheduled at a time specified by the School.
  • Semester one units - the two weeks immediately following the release of semester one deferred/supplementary results.
  • Semester two units - the first two weeks of the following semester.
  • Exam scripts are normally destroyed six months after the release of results for the unit.
