To be deemed competent you must demonstrate an understanding of all aspects required of the competency. Assessment methods have been designed to measure your achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over multiple tasks.


Assessment Tasks

Students are required to complete three different types of assessment tasks
1. Workbook activities as evidence of classroom participation ( 20% weighing)
2. Design project for eaves gutter and downpipe sizing ( 40% weighing)
3.  Design project for box gutter and sump sizing ( 40% weighing).

To successfully complete this unit, a student needs to be deemed competent (CA grade) in all three assessment tasks.
Grading Criteria:
NYC - Not yet competent
CA - Competence Achieved
DNS - Did not submit assessment
