Overview of Assessment

A number of written assignments and practical exercises throughout the course


Assessment Tasks

Assessment 1 – Engineering and Workshop Terms


This assessment will focus on your ability to identify and describe mechanical and machine elements and mechanical workshop terms. You will be able to describe these elements and represent these elements in terms of drawings and symbols according to AS1100. You will also read, identify and interpret engineering drawings in terms of symbols, dimensions, 3rd angle projection views and sectioning formats

This component will have a weighting of 20% of the final overall assessment mark.

Assessment 2 – Drawing Portfolio

This assessment will focus on your ability to manually produce technical engineering drawings according to AS1100. This will involve:

• Graphics communication and manual drawing
• Function of engineering drawings and standards
• Sheet preparation and layout
• Third angle projection of orthogonal drawings
• Referencing relevant specifications and standards in the interpretation and preparation of drawings
• Drawing sectional views, dimensioning, tolerance conventions and practices
• Isometric and oblique projections
• Assembly and detail drawings
• Material requirements
• Engineering and workshop terms


This drawing portfolio will have a weighting of 30% of the final overall assessment mark.

Assessment 3 – Drawing Test (open book)

From an isometric dimensioned drawing, you will produce a fully dimensioned and specified 3rd angle projection technical drawing in accordance to the principles set out in AS1100. You will be required to produce a top, side and front elevation views as well as a sectioned view.

This practical exercise will have a weighting of 50% of the final overall assessment mark.

Other Information

To facilitate homework, a drawing board will be necessary. A3 or larger size.

Plastic A3 boards and rules as well as protractor heads are available.

A simple ’T’-square and 45 deg and 60 deg set square would be sufficient.

RMIT will supply the use of a drawing board, rule and protractor head within timetabled class times.
