This is a critical part of the Subject Outline, where you explain what is required of the student. You should aim to have all the details in the Subject Outline because it is important for students to be able to make decisions on their ability to complete the tasks in the subject when they first enrol. Here are a number of important details that you should consider putting in the task description:
The editor provides ChemType and MathType options. Latex can be pasted directly into the editor.
In cases where it is not possible or practicable to provide assessment task details within the assessment section of the Subject Outline Tool (e.g. when statistical or other symbols cannot be reliably presented by the editor or an image), it has been agreed that assessment task details can be provided in a PDF document stored in the Resources tool of the relevant CSU Interact subject site. This is conditional upon a direct hyperlink being provided to that resource, and the necessary information about tasks such as due date, task value, task type, a description of the task, etc being provided in the Subject Outline Tool (SOT) as these are needed for EASTS and Gradebook, and to meet current policy. This option could also be suitable for other items not suited to publishing via the SOT. This is not to be considered a way to avoid using the SOT as mandatory items must remain in the Subject Outline.
A QA Declaration must be made by an Author and QAO on the Task section of each Assessment Item.
