Overview of Assessment

Assessment is ongoing throughout the course and has been designed to measure achievement of each element in a flexible manner. Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including projects and assignments, designed for students to demonstrate their ability to produce knitted textile samples. To successful complete this course students must demonstrate competency in all elements as listed.  Students will be eligible for a graded result higher than Competency achieved only if competency has been demonstrated within the standard enrolment period and on the first assessment attempt. Units assessed as ‘not yet competent’ on a first assessment attempt and ‘competent’ on a second or subsequent attempt are to have results amended to competent but will not be eligible for grading. Students are advised that they may be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to confirm aspects of competency not evidenced in class or through assessments. All work must be submitted by the due date. Late submission will not be graded higher than a Competency Achieved (CAG).
Assessment will consist of 3 tasks.
Feedback will be provided throughout the semester on all assessment tasks. All the assessment tasks must be completed before competency can be achieved.

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 coordinator or Equitable Learning Services if you would like to find out more.
