My tutor was so BORING. but I had to do it. I was blessed to have an amazing group for assessment 2, so that helped me out. The first assessment was timed and even though I had repeatedly watched the lectures I did not do as good as I would have hoped. The tutor's feedback was not helpful, very generic, but maybe if you want to do well do all your readings and participate in discussions. The content is actually interesting to some extent, but I definitely think the staff need to take a better approach, not much information was given on how to do any of the assessments in my opinion.

Let's be honest, no one would take this subject if it wasn't compulsory for their major - but as a lot of us do have to take it here's what to expect: Pros: Content isn't as dry as you would think - I found the lectures and tutorials to be okay. Found it very interesting focusing on the connotations of 'research' in indigenous communities, and in general looking at qualitative research was more interesting than I thought. Aidan as a tutor and Elena as head tutor were great - very supportive, helpful with feedback. Cons: Assignments 1 and 2 - holy moly what a mess! Assignment 1 - never have I felt so rushed for time in an assignment! Despite knowing the content really well I really struggled to get my answers together in time and really meet the criteria. Assignment 2 - also very difficult to do well on. Assignment 3 - personally this is what allowed me to pull my grade up, but honestly it was quite boring Good luck to everyone doing it! I wouldn't recommend it if it wasn't compulsory, but it's not as bad as you think!

Nope. Just nope. I know it’s compulsory but it is so dry and the group project, unless you are very lucky, will almost 100% doom your WAM. For a compulsory subject this should be way less demanding and the group project should really just not exist, I would have rather written an essay.

My tutor was the most unhelpful tutor I’ve ever had and it seemed like no one knew what they were talking about

Subject marking is kind of unfair, and I would personally say that it is hard to know what the tutors truly want, as the content is so broad in nature and it's really hard to know how much detail to include in your assignments (esp in the final essay). However, shouldn't be too hard to get a decent mark if you've scored well in the previous assignments. I ended with a 79

Honestly this subject is a bit of a drag and the lectures were quite repetitive, but I really enjoyed the last assignment because I felt like it was a chance to write about something you were actually interested in within the context of CAS. Although I did hate that group work was such a big part of the subject.

This class really isn't as bad as people say it is, I think the fact that it's mandatory just creates a little bias. I really enjoyed this class; also just to offset other comments, i found the marking lenient and transparent, so it might be just the tutor you get.

As a core subject for quite a number of majors in the arts degree, this subject was not as bad as I thought, but not good either. The lectures seemed to be more dull and disorganised towards the end and I felt that it sometimes lacked substance. The readings sometimes felt unnecessary and the tutorials were mostly a waste of time. However, the subject has definitely improved compared to past years and the skills/main material taught are important for future years/social science research.

Did not like this subject at all. The lecture content and readings were extremely dry as expected, and the 1.5 hour tutorials were painful to get through with my tutor. The short answer test held early in the semester tested very basic knowledge so it's not worth agonising over, but a lot of people still did poorly. The second assignment, a group presentation on a particular data collection or analysis method, was pretty standard. Try to start the research proposal as early as possible, as it's worth 50% of your grade and is important for getting a somewhat decent mark if you did badly on the previous assessments. It's a well-taught unit in some weeks, but incredibly boring the majority of the time.

This was the worst subject I have taken so far at uni. Poorly organised, lack of guidance for the in class tests - I found myself studying mountains of content from the readings, only to be tested on basic concepts from the lectures, which was a complete waste of time. The group assignment was incredibly frustrating. Again, lack of indication about what was expected. Don't go into CAS with high hopes, try to seek clarification from your tutors about everything so you don't end up wasting time and not including small things that are required in your presentation as I did. In the end, I got a H1 overall thanks to my final assignment (which I fluked - again, was very unsure of the detail expected), so I would say that it's not impossible to achieve, but a bit based on luck. I hope that some of these parts of the subject are changed to make it less frustrating.
