Overview of Assessment

Various written assignments/tests and practical exercises/projects 100%


Assessment Tasks

Assessment 1 – Drawing Portfolio

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

• Function of engineering drawings and standards
• Drawing 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 projections
• Assembly and detail drawings
• Material requirements
• Engineering and workshop terms

  • Plotting and printing

 This drawing portfolio will have a weighting of 40% of the final overall assessment mark.

Assessment 2 – Drawing Test (open book)

From an isometric dimensioned drawing, you will produce a fully dimensioned and specified 3rd angle projection technical drawing using the tool as part of AutoCAD and 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 60% of the final overall assessment mark.

Late submission:

If you require an Extension of Submittable Work (assignments, reports or project work etc.) for 7 calendar days or less (from the original due date) and have valid reasons, you must complete and lodge an Application for Extension of Submittable Work (7 Calendar Days or less) form and lodge it with the Senior Educator/ Program Manager.
The application must be lodged no later than one working day before the official due date. You will be notified within no more than 2 working days of the date of lodgment as to whether the extension has been granted.

If you seek an Extension of Submittable Work for more than 7 calendar days (from the original due date) must lodge an Application for Special Consideration form under the provisions of the Special Consideration Policy, preferably prior to, but no later than 2 working days after the official due date.

Submittable Work (assignments, reports or project work etc.) submitted late without approval of an extension will not be accepted or marked.

Special consideration:
