Overview of Assessment
Assessment consists of three practical assignments, the first two completed in class and the third over an extended period, plus three written tests of underpinning knowledge. To be deemed competent a student must satisfactorily complete the practical assignments and achieve a score of 50% on the written tests. Additionally, a grade will be given based on the written test marks, but satisfactory completion of practical components is a requirement to be given a grade of PA or better.
The practical skills tests involve creation of one or more web pages. They will be assessed against the performance criteria for each of the three elements of competency.
The written tests (including the final exam) test underpinning knowledge. These will be online tests in multiple choice format. The first two tests are worth 25% of your final mark each, the exam is worth 50% of your final mark.
