Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of the requirements in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks, for example:

  • direct questioning combined with review of portfolios of evidence and third party workplace reports of on-the-job performance by the candidate
  • review of final printed documents
  • demonstration of techniques
  • observation of presentations
  • oral or written questioning to assess knowledge of software applications

You are advised that you are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate your assessment work to your teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met.

  • prepare and deliver presentations related to occupation or area of interest which demonstrate the use of:
    - effective presentation strategies and communication principles
    - aids and materials to support the presentation
  • select and implement methods to review the effectiveness of own presentation and document any changes which would improve future presentations.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, you must:

  • identify information collection methods that will support review and feedback of presentations
  • identify regulatory and organisational obligations and requirements relevant to presentations
  • describe the principles of effective communication
  • describe the range of presentation aids and materials available to support presentations.

Feedback

Feedback will be provided throughout the semester in class and/or online discussions. You are encouraged to ask and answer questions during class time and online sessions so that you can obtain feedback on your understanding of the concepts and issues being discussed. Finally, you can email or arrange an appointment with your teacher to gain more feedback on your progress.

You should take note of all feedback received and use this information to improve your learning outcomes and final performance in the course.
