Submission 2: CPD assessment questions

Your CPD is due by 10:00am on the Monday of Week 5 of your final semester of units.

Your answers to the CPD Assessment Questions are 1 of the 2 documents you need to submit for your CPD (the other is the Engineering CPD Summary Report you get from Student Futures).

There are 6 CPD Assessment Questions you will need to answer, and you are asked to address the key Engineers Australia Stage 1 Competencies in your answers.

The CPD assessors look at your answers to these questions carefully, and it takes time to answer them properly, so you shouldn’t leave it to the last minute.

At the end of the CPD Assessment Questions document you are also asked to list all of your CPD experiences greater than 35 hours, and link through to the supporting documentation for each experience. Instructions on how to do this can be found on the CPD Moodle site.

You can see an example of the CPD Assessment Questions template here, but please note that they may change over time, so this attachment is a guide only. The updated document can be found on the relevant CPD Moodle site for each semester.

CPD ENG0001/ENG0003 Moodle site

The CPD Moodle site is where you will find the template document for the CPD Assessment Questions.

Once completed, this document and your Engineering CPD Summary Report from Student Futures need to be submitted on Moodle in order for them to be assessed.

There is a new moodle site for CPD created each semester, and you will automatically be added to the correct site just prior to your final semester of units.

If you are in your final semester of units and you haven’t been enrolled in an ENG0001/ENG0003 CPD Moodle site yet, then please self-enrol: Navigate to this Moodle page, type CPD into the search bar, and look for the ENG0001/ENG0003 CPD unit for the current semester.

Once your 2 CPD documents have been successfully submitted on Moodle, an academic from your department will assess your submission (including verifying your claims with the people whose contact details you provided as part of your submissions and reviewing your supporting documentation links). Note that the assessment process only begins after the submission deadline each semester, so if you have submitted early you will not receive feedback on your submission until after the submission deadline.

CPD is assessed on a pass/fail basis. If you don’t pass your CPD on your first attempt you can re-submit your work until it's satisfactory, as long as you meet the initial due date. Your assessing academic will let you know what needs attention.

When you pass CPD you will receive an SFR (Satisfies Faculty Requirements) for that unit, and you will have completed your CPD.

CPD and Academic Integrity

CPD is an academic unit, and as such falls under Monash’s Student Academic Integrity Policy.

When you submit your CPD for assessment it will be checked by TurnItIn for plagiarism.

The Faculty of Engineering audits CPD submissions every semester to ensure there are no academic integrity issues.

There will be severe penalties for anyone caught falsifying claims on their CPD. Failure to supply accurate and honest details about the activities you have attended, the hours you spent at those activities, the skills you have developed, the experiences you were exposed to, or accurate contact details and supporting documentation for verification purposes, would put your graduation in jeopardy if you were suspended or excluded from the university. Monash University’s policy on Academic Integrity applies in each of those instances, and for all CPD submissions. Furthermore, as a future Engineer, you should be upholding the Engineers Australia Stage 1 competency of ethical conduct and personal accountability.
