Overview of Assessment

Assessment for this course is ongoing throughout the semester. Your knowledge of course content is assessed through participation in class exercises, practical project work and through the application of learned skills.


Assessment Tasks

Students enrolled in Vocational Education and Training qualifications are assessed for Competency.  To be assessed competent means you have consistently demonstrated the required knowledge and skills at a standard expected in the workplace. To be assessed as Competent in this course, you will need to complete each assessment task to a satisfactory standard. You will receive feedback from the teacher at the conclusion of each assessment task.

 

AT1: Knowledge Evidence

Completing the knowledge evidence question of this assessment will allow you to demonstrate the that you have the knowledge to take a design concept to implementation stage showing clear understanding of the processes and show understanding of human-computer interaction design including the processes needed to perform intensive user testing.

Due week 9

 

AT2: Interaction Prototype

Students will be given a set brief called “Interaction Design”.they will work with their teacher and peers to collaborate and develop an innovative interactive design solution for the problem that the brief presents. This brief will set out the requirements and purpose of the assessment that student must follow, including a problem to solve as the main focus of their interactive design solution.

Due week 8

 

AT3: Implement Interaction

In this assessment students will use the testing and feedback on their interaction solutions to finalise one single solution, test solution on target audience and finalise project implementation.

Due week 15

 

Graded assessment in this course uses the following grades:

CA - Competency Achieved
NYC - Not Yet Competent
DNS - Did Not Submit


Assessment Matrix

Assessment for this course is ongoing throughout the semester. Your knowledge of course content is assessed through participation in class exercises, practical project work and through the application of learned skills.

Academic Integrity and Plagiarism:
RMIT University has a strict policy on plagiarism and academic integrity. Please refer to the website for more information on this policy.

Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning:
Credit transfer is the recognition of previously completed formal learning (an officially accredited qualification).
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that allows you to demonstrate competence using the skills you have gained through experience in the workplace, voluntary work, informal or formal training or other life experiences.
Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) RCC applies only if you have previously successfully demonstrated competence in a unit of competency, and now require to be reassessed to ensure that the competence is being maintained.

Please speak to your teacher if you wish to discuss applying for Credit Transfer, RPL, or RCC for the unit(s) of competency addressed in this course.
