Assessment task 1: Online Tests: Description
The online multiple-choice quizzes provide opportunities for feedback on your understanding of key theories and concepts in this subject.
Marks will be awarded for each correct MCQ answer. The total marks awarded for the quizzes will be converted to a percentage attainment from the 30% of the total subject assessment allocated to this assessment task. Note that while recall of specific statistics (e.g., 26.6% of men are found to be overweight) is not required, general trends and findings may be tested (e.g., health spending is lower in non-Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples).
Assessment task 2: Proposal: Description
For this assessment, you will prepare a project proposal for an intervention program including background, rationale, goals, program overview, and theoretical background addressing one of the three topics. Note that choosing any other topics aside from those listed below will result in a fail grade.
Your proposal must include the following headings only:
Background and Rationale
Goals of the program
Methodology (including use of theoretical framework
Topic 1: Resilience, social and emotional wellbeing of Indigenous peoples in Australia.
Topic 2: Health Promotion Campaign
Topic 3: Australia’s Vision 2030 Blueprint for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention
Assessment task 3: ePoster: Description
In assessment task 2, you (hypothetically) sent your proposal to a group of health psychologists for evaluation, and it was submitted to key stakeholders shortly after it was approved by the health psychologists. You now hear that your proposal has garnered some interest among these stakeholders. However, because the stakeholder organisation has received many proposals requesting funding, you have been asked to prepare an ePoster as part of a mini-conference competition, where the winner’s program gets funded. In addition, the key stakeholders have decided to involve community members and get them to vote for the project they think is most important for the community.
For this ePoster, you will focus on providing details of only ONE component of your program (e.g., psychoeducation, training) and how you plan to deliver that component. The component MUST be based on the program you proposed in assessment task 2 (i.e., if you proposed a program targeting ‘tobacco use’ in your assignment, then you will need to focus on that here as well). Remember you are putting this together for an audience who are non-academics, so ensure your communication is appropriate for a lay audience as community members will be viewing your poster. Keep in mind that the target population for your program is different to your audience for this poster. You should not repeat what you have submitted in the proposal as a synopsis of your proposal will be provided next to your poster. When designing your ePoster, you might want to consider the following:
