Overview of Assessment

The assessment is conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the performance criteria set in the National Training Package. Assessment may incorporate a variety of methods including written/oral activities and demonstration of practical skills to the relevant industry standards. Participants are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment activities to their teacher/assessor. Feedback will be provided throughout the course. To successfully complete this course you will be required to demonstrate competency in each assessment task detailed under Assessment Tasks:

 

Assessment 1: Project 1 report

Weighting towards final grade (%): 40

 

Assessment 2: Project 2 report

Weighting towards final grade (%): 40

 

Assessment 3: Presentation and Reflective Journal

Weighting towards final grade (%): 20
