Overview of Assessment

This unit of competency could be assessed in the workplace or a close simulation of the workplace environment, provided that simulated or project-based assessment techniques fully replicate building design workplace conditions, materials, activities, responsibilities and procedures. Holistic or project-based assessment with other related units is recommended.

A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must be able to provide evidence of the ability to:
• comply with OHS regulations applicable to workplace operations
• apply organisational policies and procedures, including quality assurance requirements where applicable
• produce two and three-dimensional drawings for residential building projects, including at least one orthographic, one isometric and one perspective drawing
• complete working drawings to industry standard and as determined by the project brief.
 


Assessment Tasks

ALL ASSESSMENT TASKS MUST BE SUBMITTED IN ORDER TO PASS THIS COURSE

 

Assessment Breakdown:

Exercises: 5%

P1 House 20%

P2 Extension project:25%

P3 Two storey project:35%

Studio validation : 15%

 

Assessment tasks in this course are either formative - Primers, or summative - Major Projects.

Formative tasks provide the basis for ongoing feedback and can be considered essential building blocks for the more substantial summative assessment tasks.

Summative assessment tasks in this course are graded. Refer to RMIT University VET Grades Curriculum-based Courses: http://www1.rmit.edu.au/browse;ID=6voay09je4v9#final
