墨尔本大学针对疫情出台最新WAM计算方法

The University of Melbourne Academic Board has revised assessment of the Weighted Average Marks (WAM) for Semester 1 2020, as a result of the effect of the COVID-19 global pandemic. The Board has been considering this and has listened to the broad range of views shared with us and both acknowledge, and greatly appreciate, the diversity of perspectives of our student body.

墨尔本大学学术委员会(The University of Melbourne Academic Board)已经修订了2020年第一学期的加权平均分数(WAM)评估,这是由于COVID-19全球大流行的影响。大学一直在考虑这个问题,并听取了与我们分享的广泛观点,并承认并非常赞赏我们学生群体观点的多样性。

We also acknowledge that the effects of the current situation may vary from student to student. In determining any adjustments with respect to the WAM, the Academic Board has been guided by the principle of fairness to ensure no student is disadvantaged as a result.

我们也承认,当前形势的影响可能因学生而异。在决定对WAM的任何调整时,学术委员会一直遵循公平原则,以确保没有学生因此而处于不利地位。

The Academic Board has resolved that results from Semester 1, 2020 subjects will not be included in the calculation of a student’s Weighted Average Mark (WAM) unless the mark achieved for the subject is equal to or higher than the WAM the student had achieved at the beginning of the semester.

学术委员会决定,S1/2020的课程结果将不包括在学生的WAM计算中。除非学生的分数等于或高于WAM学生在学期开始时。

The revised WAM calculation will apply as follows, noting the following arrangements and exceptions: 修订后的WAM计算方法将适用如下,注意到下列安排和例外情况:

  1. The WAM for programs that comprise 50 points or less in total will be calculated using normal practice, as a benchmark WAM based on prior study in that program for a student cannot be established.
    对于总分不超过50分的项目,WAM将采用常规做法进行计算,因为无法根据学生在该项目之前的学习情况确定WAM的基准。
  2. No first semester 2020 subject will be included in the WAM calculation for a student who has yet to complete 50 points of study in their enrolled program prior to 2020, as a benchmark WAM for the student in that program cannot be established (this applies to students not covered by exception (1) above).
  3. For the Bachelors (Honours) program, subjects that receive a weighted mark below a student’s entry WAM for that program will be excluded from the WAM calculation. For the avoidance of doubt, a student’s entry WAM, in this context, is the WAM presented by the student to meet the selection resolution for that program, not the minimum WAM required for selection into the program. This applies to students who have commenced their Honours year in the first semester 2020.

对于学士学位(荣誉学位)课程而言,如果学生的加权分数低于该课程的入学平均分,则该课程的平均分将被排除在平均分之外。为免生疑问,在此情况下,学生的入学WAM是学生为满足该项目的选择分辨率而提交的WAM,而不是选择该项目所需的最低WAM。这适用于在2020年第一学期开始荣誉学年的学生。

  1. All subject scores will be recorded on the transcript.
    i. Where the result does not contribute to the WAM, it will be recorded against a new code. This code identifies subjects excluded from the WAM because of COVID-19.

所有科目成绩将记录在成绩单上。如果结果没有提交给WAM,则将根据新代码记录。此代码标识由于COVID-19而被排除在WAM之外。

  1. At the conclusion of their studies, students can request that all results recorded against the COVID-19 code be included in the WAM calculation. Any such subjects will then be coded as per usual practice.

在他们的研究结束时,学生可以要求根据COVID-19编码记录的所有结果都包括在WAM计算中。任何这样的都将按照惯例进行编写。

  1. The revised WAM calculation does not apply to any subjects in Higher Degrees by Research.

修正后的WAM计算不适用于任何研究型高等学位课程。
