Learning Outcomes


Overview of Assessment

This unit is part of an integrated program.

You must demonstrate Performance and Knowledge Evidence of the unit 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:

• Oral or written questioning

• Oral presentations

• Assignments and projects

• Direct observation of actual work practice

• Presentation of a portfolio of evidence which may comprise documents, and/or photographs and/or video and/or audio files

• Work-based activities

• Third-party feedback from a work supervisor/employer

Primary assessment involves on-going practical and applied assessment in a clinical workplace or simulated environment such as a supervised student clinic.

Assessment may also take place in a simulated work situation such as a supervised student clinic or at a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placement activity.

Competency based training requires you to be in attendance in order for assessment to be undertaken.

The major learning experience involves participating in face to face classes. It is strongly advised that you attend all sessions in order to engage in the required learning activities, ensuring the maximum opportunity to gain the competency. www.rmit.edu.au/policies/academicprogress    

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.
