Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.

Pre-requisites and Co-requisites

Learning Outcomes

Details of Learning Activities

Participate face to face in

• Classroom tutorial activities to consolidate basic concept of information systems application in variety business context, integrate information to provide solution to a business problem, design and create database systems and business documents.

• Practical activities focus on the application of different computer software package that widely used in business computing, develop database and documents for variety of business context.

• Work simulation projects focus in technical leadership activities, which include: team building, identify team member’s work task, clear and concise dissemination of ideas and information, planning and organising work to meet quality standards, time-line, personnel requirements and contingencies. Demonstrate leadership characteristic, such as: conflict resolution and problem solving, ability to conduct and participate in meetings, keeping records and documenting tasks.

Specifications will be provided with work simulation (team or individual basis) or may be negotiated to suit a workplace-based application
Project may be undertaken as part of a team or individual basis.

Overview of Assessment

This is a progressive assessment, the underpinning knowledge will be assessed on the completion of each course, but the competency itself will not be signed off until related competency is completed and the student is deemed competent.
The students are required to undertake summative assessments as follows:
Progressive Written Assessments
• Work Simulation Case Studies
• Work Simulation Projects

Assessment Tasks

Assessment activities will be as close as practicable to real work situations and will require “real work” type decision-making by the student. Evidence of competent performance shall be gathered from

• Work performance simulations

Assessments include:

• Projects:

Student has to demonstrate the applied knowledge required to meet assessment criteria and technical requirement specified in the required competency standard.

• Practical exercises :

These will be assessed progressively according to individual task criteria. All practical exercises must be
o Undertaken according to safe working practice as specified by the Centre.
o Perform according to specified laboratory standards and practice including calibration, measurement and accurate reading. This must include electrical measurement taken with safe working practice, meters properly calibrated, meter settings positioned for an accurate reading and accurate readings taken for all measurements.

• Progressive and Validation Tests

Theoretical concept underpinning measurement and testing procedures will be assessed progressively in tests throughout the unit. A written/ oral validation test will also apply to aspects of projects done in groups.

% of assessment

• Assignment/ work performance simulations projects (100%)
• A Pass in the Learning Unit when evidence of learning is collected according to the requirements as stated at “assessment criteria”. The documentation must be clearly communicated and submitted to supervisor within specified time.

Assessment Matrix

Other Information

To pass this course, student must complete all the scheduled practical exercises, and pass
all the written examinations.
