Unit Average

In calculating the unit average, marks of students who did not complete at least 50% of the assessment for the unit will be excluded.

The unit averages shall be:

For units with an enrolment of at least 50:

(a) Level 1: A unit average of 62.5% plus or minus 2.5%

(b) Level 2 and Level 3: A unit average of 67.5% plus or minus 2.5%

(c) Level 4 and Level 5:  A unit average of 70% plus or minus 5%          

For units with an enrolment of between 10 and 50:

The same target averages prescribed in (a) and (b), but the tolerance is increased to plus or minus [2.5%*square root of (50/n)],where n is the number of students in the unit.The same target averages prescribed in (c), but the tolerance is increased to plus or minus [5%*square  root of (50/n)],where n is the number of students in the unit.

For units with an enrolment of less than 10, marks shall be reported to the Board of Examiners without adjustment.

For unit results which do not meet these specifications, the relevant course controller and unit coordinator should investigate the cause of the deviation. In the absence of a rigorous explanation for the deviation, the Board of Examiners shall require the school to adjust the marks.
