    The private and public universities are cu
ently implementing and designing strategies for ensuring proper higher education performance within different institutions in Australia. With the rise of the evaluative state in Australia, different university quality assessment has become an essential topic among the policy makers and academic personnel. The choice of the student in graduate school is influenced highly by the quality of lecture and assessment provided by the school.
Since, students are the primary clients or customers of the graduate school, determining the student satisfaction is necessary for all institutions. To ensure high student satisfaction, the graduate schools are focusing on improving the quality of assessments and lectures. The proposed research will critically evaluate and analyse the impact of lectures and assessments on student satisfaction in graduate schools of Australia.
The research proposal has addressed the background and analysis of the problem. A literature review also has been conducted and the research hypothesis has been formulated for the research as well. Finally, it presents the proposed research plan on which the entire research will be based.
Background and analysis of the problem
    Most of the graduate education system expects their faculty members and lecturers to be excellent in research and teaching activities. A positive relationship is usually assumed between good lectures, assessments and successful research. The competencies, values and attitudes also lead to the excellence of teaching that leads to good and higher quality research. Up to date and accurate material in assessment and lectures captures the attention of the students easily. According to Huang (2018), presenting the assessment of the lecture and discussing it with passion in the lectures also adds the authenticity sense to the entire teaching framework.
However, the firm relationship between assessment and lectures on the student satisfaction has not been evaluated for the graduate schools in Australia yet. Due to lack of proper and high-quality assessment and lectures, the student satisfaction has also been decreasing in the graduate schools that lead to low admissions into the schools. Hence, the graduate schools are losing student count over the years compared to previous years (Cole, 2014).
Key variable identification
    The research that is proposed will deal with the two independent variables of lectures and assessments in graduate schools. Lectures are considered as the presentation orally intended for teaching the students and informing them regarding a particular subject in the graduate schools. According to Bates (2017), assessments are the process for the evaluation of the learning outcome for each student; at the graduate schools at the end of a typical semester, program, unit, course or a school year. The dependent variable of the research proposed is student satisfaction.

Aim of the research
The aim of the research is to critically evaluate and analyse the impact of lectures and assessments on student satisfaction in graduate schools of Australia.
Literature review
The dependent variable of interest
The dependent variable for the proposed research is student satisfaction. Students are usually the consumers of higher education. Satisfaction of the student is essential to the success of institutions (Croxton, 2014). Effective institutions usually have highly satisfied students or customer as the satisfaction helps in supporting the additional students or customer’s enrolment. The student satisfaction rating has also become much more readily available and transparent in Australia. Most of the graduate schools in Australia are looking for ways to improve the student satisfaction at the institution levels. Student satisfaction also has institutional, individual and social implications. As per Marie (2018), satisfied students usually continue for the studies and also academically excel which leads to financial position enhancement as well as increasing reputation for the institution itself. A satisfied student also makes public relation agencies much more effective.
Student satisfaction also helps in retaining and attracting high achievers, increasing the standing and reputation of the graduate schools in Australia. Improvement and maintenance of the satisfaction of student are considered as one of the major objectives for education graduates. Yusoff (2015) stated that school’s image is an actor for student satisfaction along with the assessment and quality of lectures provided to them during the course. The student’s rating scales are hence the component for evaluation of the teaching system. Assessment of student satisfaction helps graduate schools to focus on quality development issues directly and hence the graduate schools implement and identify the development areas.
Student satisfaction can be hence calculated by conducting questionnaire or surveys for the student to rate and evaluate the overall system of education for the graduate schools in Australia (Aherne, 2016). The result that will be produced would be highly reliable and valid, as they will be collected directly from the students. It will reflect the quality of education especially in terms of lectures and assessment provided in the course...
