Overview of Assessment

Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including projects and assignments designed for students to demonstrate their ability to print textile samples. To successfully 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. Tasks 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 tasks have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner.   Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including recording all technical documentation in and development of a technical file, printed textile samples and observational checklists completed by the class teacher during class exercises.

Detailed information about grading and assessment will be provided in class. Graded assessment in this course uses the following grades: CHD      Competent with High Distinction CDI        Competent with Distinction CC         Competent with Credit CAG      Competency Achieved - Graded NYC      Not Yet Competent DNS      Did Not Submit for Assessment

Feedback will be provided throughout the semester on all assessment tasks. All assessment tasks must be completed before competency can be achieved.
