Accreditation and Weighting

Upon completion of the program, the Academic Program Officer provides a student’s home university with a two‐page ‘Student Outcome Evaluation’ report detailing a student’s academic performance on the program. Student performance will be assessed only as ‘Satisfactory’ or ‘Unsatisfactory’ (equivalent to an ‘ungraded pass/fail’).

The student’s Host Organisation workplace mentor is also required to provide a brief report on the student’s activities and performance while undertaking their placement. This includes evaluation of a student’s professional demeanour and conduct, their ability to reflect critically and adapt to issues encountered in the workplace, their  approach to work, and their demonstrated cross-cultural communication skills (both oral and written). Assessment of the academic classwork component of the program will be carried out by academic staff at Atma Jaya University and the ACICIS Academic Program Officer.

To complete the program satisfactorily, students must demonstrate the ability to perform tasks in a workplace, at a satisfactory standard, as well as to reflect on the experience and relate it back to their academic studies. Students must attend a minimum of 80 per cent of scheduled language classes, industry seminars and fieldtrips, as well as achieve a grade of at least 60 per cent in the Indonesian language component.

A student’s home university retains the right to set and grade other assessment tasks related to the program. While ACICIS makes a recommendation about how much academic credit a student should be awarded for their participation in the program, it is up to individual home universities to determine their own protocols and rules for awarding academic credit to students who undertake and successfully complete the program.

Assessment Documents

Both the student and the student’s home university will receive a copy of the Academic Program Officer’s student outcome evaluation report as well as an official academic transcript from Atma Jaya University. These assessment documents will be sent electronically from the ACICIS Secretariat in Perth within six weeks of a student’s completion of the program. The home university may choose to award a grade or an ungraded pass/fail on the basis of these documents and any additional home university assessment requirements for the program.

Participants not requiring academic credit may opt in their application form for a Professional Reference from the Academic Program Officer instead of an academic report.
