English Communications (ENC315109) has a complexity level of TQA 3 and a size value of 15: [contributes to the calculation of Australian Tertiary Admission Ranks (ATAR)]
In this course students investigate the power of language in society. The central focus is on the critical study of the way communications work in the modern world with a particular emphasis on Australian contexts. Using an inquiry approach students engage with relevant issues and contemporary texts in an intellectually challenging way. As they respond to and create texts, students develop an understanding of the complexity of language in a multiplicity of uses. They develop high-level skills in oral and written responses, producing original and authentic texts.
The following processes will be facilitated by the TQA to ensure there is:
Processes - the Authority gives course providers feedback about any systematic differences in the relationship of their internal and external assessments and, where appropriate, seeks further evidence through audit and requires corrective action in the future.
- a match between the standards for achievement specified in the course and the standards demonstrated by students
- community confidence in the integrity and meaning of the qualification.
