Overview of Assessment

This is a progressive assessment, the students are required to undertake summative assessments as follows:
• Drawing assessments
• CAD design simulation projects


Assessment Tasks

Assessment task1: 40%

Assessment task 1 will be a set of practical exercises based on AUTOCAD Software. All these exercises need to be completed by week 10. The practical exercises are accumulative ones and will be graded on submission of all laboratory reports. These practical exercises will be available on learning hub and student’s local drive.

Laboratory exercise-1: 5%

Laboratory exercise-2: 5%

Laboratory exercise-3: 7.5%

Laboratory exercise-4: 7.5%

Laboratory exercise-5: 7.5%

Laboratory exercise- 6: 7.5%


Assessment task 2: 30%

Assessment task 2 will be a student project based on AUTOCAD. All these exercises need to be completed by week 16. These practical exercises will be available on learning hub and student’s local drive.


Assessment task 3 : 40%
A practical test will be held on week 18 based on all the learning aspects (AUTOCAD Software) of these competencies.

Note: There will be penalty for late submissions.

This course is graded using the following course grades:

80 - 100:   CHD - Competent with High Distinction
70 - 79:     CDI - Competent with Distinction
60 - 69:     CC - Competent with Credit
50 - 59:     CAG - Competency Achieved - Graded
  0 - 49:     NYC - Not Yet Competent
                 DNS - Did Not Submit for Assessment.

Other Information

This course is delivered in a cluster (AutoCAD) in conjunction with " SYS5662C Use engineering application software" and  OFFC5195C "Use basic computer applicaitons relevant to a workplace". All the learning and assessment activities will include the components of both competencies UEENEED004B and UEENEED001B.

In this cluster, minimum student directed hours are  24 in addition to 36 scheduled teaching hours.
Student directed hours involve completing activities such as reading online resources, assignments, project work, individual student-teacher course-related consultation, and writing lab reports.

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.
