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:

This competency is delivered as a cluster in Theme 1, but is individually assessed.

To be deemed competent you must demonstrate an understanding of all aspects required of the competency. Assessment methods have been designed to measure your achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over multiple tasks.


Assessment Tasks

Students must pass each of the following assessment tasks to demonstrate competent.

Assessment Task 1 – Field test on 30/03/2015 (AD2 ) or 01/04/2015 (AD1) weight 30%
Assessment Task 2 – Field test on 02/06/2015 (AD2) or 03/06/2015 (AD1) weight 30%
Assessment Task 3 – Portfolio due on 01/06/2014 (AD2) or 03/06/2014 (AD1) weight 40%

All assessment tasks need to be succesfully completed to demonstrate competence.

Courses delivered in accordance with competency-based assessment, but which also utilise graded assessment.
CHD (80-100%): Competent with High Distinction
CDI (70-79%): Competent with Distinction
CC (60-69%): Competent with Credit
CAG (50-59%): Competency Achieved – Graded
NYC (<50%): Not Yet Competent
