Learning Outcomes


Refer to the Learning Package on the Learning Hub.


Details of Learning Activities

Students will use the Planning and Time Management chart in the learning material to assist them through the course. The chart lists all your topics and their learning outcomes, and the activities and assessments to complete. Following this chart is the best way to monitor your progress and ensure you meet all deadlines.

This course runs for an 8 week duration (approximately 4 hours per week) consisting of both; in-class time and out of hours study. Students are expected to complete the project assessment either during scheduled class time or in their own time.

Students will submit their assessment projects and activities as indicated in the Learning Guide and feedback on activities and assessments will be provided during and after submission.

All work must be presented as specified by your teacher and as per the instructions in the learning guide. Students are required to be professional in both presentation and attitude, including meeting of deadlines. Plagiarism is strictly forbidden. Students must ensure they have read the plagiarism statement in the Course Outlines online.

A schedule of assessments can be found below and in the learning guides.

Overview of Assessment

Assessment are conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the performance criteria set out in the National Training Package. Students are required to undertake summative assessments that bring together knowledge and skills. To successfully complete this course you will be required to demonstrate competency in each assessment tasks detailed under the Assessment Task Section.

Your assessment for this course will be marked using the following table:

NYC (<50%) Not Yet Competent

CAG (50-59%) Competent - Pass

CC (60-69%) Competent - Credit

CDI (70-79%) Competent - Distinction

CHD (80-100%) Competent - High Distinction


Assessment Tasks

All assessment tasks are drawing based assessments to be completed on the CAD program taught in class. Each assessment gradually steps up in degrees of difficulty as the student develops and gains greater experience with the program and Engineering concepts. Below is a Marking Guideline to assist students understand the grading system and what it takes to achieve a higher grade and improve their performance. A Marking guideline matrix appears in the learning guide for this course.

Students must achieve a result of >50% combined for the assessment tasks to pass this course.

If a re-submission is granted, or an alternative assessment offered and a pass grade achieved, then students will not be eligible for a grade higher than 50% regardless of the standard of work.

• Relevant
• Current
• Satisfies the learning/competency outcomes of the course

Please refer to http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/enrolment/credit to find more information about credit transfer and RPL.

Please refer to http://www.rmit.edu.au/disability to find more information about services offered by Disability Liaison Unit.

Late Submission:

If you require an Extension of Submittable Work (assignments, reports or project work etc.) for seven calendar days or less (from the original due date) and have valid reasons, you must complete 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 two working days of the date of lodgement as to whether the extension has been granted.

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

Please refer to http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/specialconsideration to find more information about special consideration.

Plagiarism:

Plagiarism is a form of cheating and it is very serious academic offence that may lead to expulsion from the university.
