IBA205 - SP3 - Exam errors
Students who studied through Open Universities Australia, at Griffith University, 2013 - Study Period 3 encountered a major problem with the final exam. Worth 50% of the total course mark, students were told there were no tricks and the exam questions were drawn from a pool of Q-stream questions (over 160 multiple choice revision questions).
It is estimated only 16 out of 50 final exam questions were derived from Q-stream - much to the shock of students. A resolution from Griffith University confirmed there was an error and based on this, a total of 6 extra marks would be awarded to each student. This is not how scaling should work and given no one even has their marks back - this has the chance to greatly disadvantage overall course averages.
Studying through OUA is time consuming and much harder than face-to-face. Many students work full time and juggle families. We would appreciate the opportunity to have the compensation reviewed again.
