Annual Course Review

Annual Course Review monitors and analyses key indicators related to student profile, student demand and the quality of learning and teaching. Data about the course can be accessed via the Business Intelligence platform. Reporting at the course and school levels is via an online survey; a unique link is sent directly to the person responsible.

Curriculum Analysis, Review and Renewal Process (CARR)

Formerly Comprehensive Course Review

For guidance on initiating and conducting a CARR contact the Course and Teaching Quality

The purpose of CARR is to review and analyse the entire academic program for an award; its regulations, structure (its units, major and minor sequences), currency of the curriculum, quality of learning and teaching, relevance of assessment tasks, fieldwork, projects and work experience, and any other aspects which comprise the award course. The major focus is to review the course curriculum map which shows how the learning outcomes and assessments contribute to the achievement of course learning outcomes; to review the level of engagement in learning experiences in all modes and consider student retention and pass rates; and to monitor student perceptions of how all aspects of the course support their achievement of the course learning outcomes. Courses may be reviewed individually or in clusters. A course must undergo CARR at least once every five years.
