MDSC comprises a 6.25 credit point subject and as such there are some hurdle assessment requirements which must be met in order to pass the subject. The assessment task you need to complete will depend on what year level you are in. All assessment is pass/fail, and all items are hurdle.

  • Conference reflection
  • Research evaluation
  • At least 3 secondary elements

MD4

The ePortfolio

The ePortfolio is an opportunity for you to reflect upon your thoughts and experiences from MDSC. Successful completion of the e-Portfolio is a hurdle requirement to pass the MDSC subject.

The requirements for the ePortfolio differ by year level. You will be required to complete all compulsory elements (CE) and secondary elements (SE) allocated to your year level. Only the minimum amount of secondary elements required will be assessed; however, you may choose to exceed this amount if you wish.

You must complete all of the compulsory elements allocated to your year level. Some year levels are also required to complete secondary elements (below).
