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 three stages in the Faculty of Information Technology:

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

Stage 2
View your exam script - apply to view your exam script for more detailed feedback (open for Period 2 now until 20 February).

Stage 3
If - after completing the first two stages (viewed the exam summary feedback and your exam script) - you would still like to know more about your performance, you may submit a written request via an online application form for further feedback from your Chief Examiner. This request must be submitted no later than 10 working days after viewing the examination script. This form will re-open after the first 2019 viewing session.

Exam script viewing sessions (Semester 2, 2018)

In recognition that many students travel home in December, we are offering two exam viewing periods for Semester 2, 2018 exams:

  • Period 1 in December 2018 (one session per week at Clayton and Caulfield), and
  • Period 2 in February 2019.

All undergraduate student script viewings will be held at Clayton Campus. All postgraduate script viewings will be held at Caulfield campus.

You may only view your exam script for each unit once in either Period 1 or 2.

Applications to view Semester 2, 2018 exam scripts will open on Sunday 2 December 2018. Applications will close 24 hours before each viewing session and re-open for the remaining viewing sessions directly afterwards.

Please be aware that there are limited places available at each session and we made need to close some sessions early if they reach capacity.

Applications - for Period 2 ONLY - now open and will close for ALL sessions on 20 February 2019.

Please be aware that due to the logistics of this activity, we are unable to accept late applications or provide additional viewing sessions.

Attending an Exam Viewing session

  • Exam viewing is solely for the purpose of reviewing your exam performance.
  • You must show your student ID card to enter.
  • Only the students viewing their exam script will be allowed in the viewing session.
  • You can only view your own exam.
  • Your viewing will be supervised.
  • You cannot photocopy, mark or alter the exam script in any way.
  • Supervising staff cannot discuss your exam or marks with you.
  • You cannot bring any pens, pencils, mobile phones (or similar digital devices) into the viewing session. You will be provided with writing and noting materials at the viewing session.
  • You may be denied access to your exam script if the final exam was short answer or multiple choice.
  • Exam scripts are usually destroyed six months after the unit results are released.

Looking for more feedback?

You can submit a request for further feedback (after viewing your exam script and reviewing the exam summary feedback) using an online form (this form will re-open after the first 2019 viewing session).

Your request should include an explanation of the reason you are seeking further feedback - such as a chance to understand how you could have expanded a response.

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 the Exam Summary Feedback - provided on Moodle following the release of results.

Applications for individual feedback following exam viewing will open once exam viewing sessions commence and will close 20 working days later.
