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 further courses related to the competency are completed and the student is deemed competent.
The students are required to undertake summative assessments as follows:
• Progressive Written Assessments
• Written Assignments
• Scheduled Practical Exercises
• Work Simulation Projects


Assessment Tasks

1. 3 Progressive written assessments.
2. Work-simulation projects and assignments will be assessed by a formal open book written test.
3. Scheduled Practical Exercises (must pass all practical exercises).

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