Learning Outcomes

Overview of Assessment

Students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of a particular unit of competency to be deemed competent. Students are advised that they will be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met.

Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievements of each competency. Assessments will incorporate a variety of methods: direct questioning combined with review of individual portfolios of evidence, demonstration of techniques, oral or written questioning to assess knowledge of word processing software functions and review of text documents.

In addition to the assessments, formative feedback is provided to the students throughout the duration of the course.
