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:

Other Information

Assessment Submission:

Turnitin

Turnitin is an online text-matching service which can be used to support academic integrity and address plagiarism. All submissions via Turnitin within Blackboard include the relevant wording for the e-Submission authorisation process. Students are to use Turnitin. to verify that the work submitted is their

own work and referenced accordingly. This software will be used by all staff to ensures original work by students is checked at submission of the assessment.

e-Submission

The University is obliged to obtain clear student authorisation on all assessable works. RMIT’s e-Submission process provides a valid authorisation equivalent to a signature on a paper coversheet

allowing students to submit assessment works electronically.The e-Submission process requires that specific wording and a link to the assessment declaration is included in your assessment documentation in order to comply with legal and statutory obligations, and

can be used with all RMIT teaching technologies, including;

• Blackboard

• WebLearn

• RMIT’s Google Apps for Education (Gmail, Drive, Sites etc.)

The use of fully electronic submissions saves significant time for both staff and students.

Good practice

• Providing clear advice to students on the e-Submission process as part of their assessment expectations assists in ensuring that it is straightforward for RMIT students to submit work electronically.

• Students can submit non-electronic works via conversion by a digital scanner, i.e. paper-based assessments can be scanned and submitted for assessment via the e-Submission process.

• Establishing a Turnitin assignment in Blackboard is a quick way to provide an e-Submission process for a class group.

Students must submit all assessment task electronically via blackboard as directed by their teacher.

Students are not to email or hand assessment tasks to teachers in class, corridor or cafeteria etc

 

Credit Transfer and/or Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL):

 

You may be eligible for credit towards courses in your program if you have already met the learning/competency outcomes through previous learning and/or industry experience.

• 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.
 

Study and Learning Support:

Study and Learning Centre (SLC) provides free learning and academic development advice to you. Services offered by SLC to support your numeracy and literacy skills are:
• Assignment writing, thesis writing and study skills advice
• Maths and science developmental support and advice
• English language development
Please refer to http://www.rmit.edu.au/studyandlearningcentre  to find more information about Study and Learning Support.
 

Disability Liaison Unit:

If you are suffering from long-term medical condition or disability, you should contact Disability Liaison Unit to seek advice and support to complete your studies.
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.
Please refer to http://www.rmit.edu.au/academicintegrity  to find more information about plagiarism.
 

Email Communication:

All email communications will be sent to your RMIT email address and you must regularly check your RMIT emails.
