Course Progress Policy
Datum College will monitor, records and assesses the course progress of each student for the course in which the student is enrolled.

The procedure sets out the processes for reporting student unsatisfactory course progress on PRISMS according to ESOS Act Section 19.
Datum College assess student’s progress at the end of each compulsory Term. The Term is 11 weeks long for all qualifications on CRICOS scope.

One Term is considered the minimum length of time in which it is reasonable for the Administration Manager to make an assessment of a student’s course progress.
- Satisfactory course progress is achieved where a student successfully completes at least 50% of course requirements in a successfully completed Term.
- Unsatisfactory progress is defined as not successfully completing or demonstrating competency in more than 50% of the course requirements in a successfully completed Term.
