National Competency Codes and Titles

National Element Code & Title:

VU21364 Investigate numerical and statistical information in a range of contexts

Elements:

1 Investigate and interpret numerical information in a range of texts

2 Investigate and create statistical data, tables and graphs


Learning Outcomes

This unit describes the skills and knowledge to develop numeracy and mathematical skills involving investigating and interpreting numerical information embedded in a range of texts and creating, investigating and interpreting statistical data, tables and graphs related to their personal, public, work or education and training lives.

The required outcomes described in this unit relate directly to the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF)

http://www.acer.edu.au/cspa/australian-core-skills-framework
 


They contribute directly to the achievement of ACSF indicators of competence at Level Four Numeracy (4.10, 4.11, 4.12, 4.13)


Overview of Assessment

This course is delivered as part of an integrated program.


You must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of the competencies in order to be deemed competent. Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks.


You may be assessed by:
• records of teacher observations of your activities, dicussions and practical tasks - portfolio - undertaking real surveys - classroom simulations
• questioning, for example: online response; interviews; self assessment; verbal questioning; written questioning

 

Feedback:
Feedback will be provided throughout the semester in class and/or online discussions, through individual and group feedback on practical exercises and by individual consultation.

If you have a long term medical condition and/or disability it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program manager or the Equitable Learning Services if you would like to find out more.

The Student Charter www.rmit.edu.au/about/our-education/supporting-learning-and-teaching/student-charter/ summarises your responsibilities as an RMIT University student as well as the responsibilities of the university.

Your course assessment conforms to RMIT assessment principles, regulations, policies and procedures which can be found on the RMIT University website at: http://www1.rmit.edu.au/browse;ID=qwxbqbg739rl1
