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:

Blackboard
Blackboard is an on-line resource with the lesson plans for each unit. Within Blackboard are the session lessons plans, assessments, resources and other materials required for completion of each unit of competency. Blackboard Collaborate is an on-line delivery system within Blackboard that may be utilised as a virtual classroom that may be a part of the overall lesson delivery plan.

Projects and Presentations
Students are required to complete an individual written assessment and include group discussions to provide evidence of the competency in the unit.

Reasonable Adjustment
Students with a disability or long-term medical or mental health condition can apply for adjustments to their study and assessment conditions (Reasonable Adjustments and Equitable Assessment Arrangements) by registering with the Disability Liaison Unit (DLU) at http://www1.rmit.edu.au/browse;ID=01daxmpd1vo4z

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. To be eligible for credit towards a course, you must demonstrate that you have already completed learning and/or gained industry experience that is:
• 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.

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

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.

Special consideration:
Please Refer http://www.rmit.edu.au/staff/studentadmin/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: www.rmit.edu.au/academicintegrity to find more information about plagiarism.

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