Overview of Assessment
Assessment may incorporate a variety of methods including technical requirements documentation, homework, assignments, group and/or individual projects, in class exercises, written and practical tests, problem solving exercises, presentations, direct observation of actual and simulated work practice, presentation of a portfolio of evidence which may comprise documents, and/or photographs and/or video and audio files, review of products produced through work-based or course activities.
Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met. Students will be provided with feedback throughout the course to check their progress.
Competency and grading requirements
Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency. To be deemed competent students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of a competency.
Students will achieve a grade of CA if competent, or alternatively a NYC to indicate they are not yet competent for each assessment. If competent, the assessment will
also carry a numerical weighting for the purpose of articulation into degree courses. Where a student is graded as NYC, they will be given an opportunity to resit the
assessment as scheduled in week 12.
Students who achieve competency in a reassessment will be allocated a grade for the assessment and assuming competency is achieved in all assessments an overall course grade out of 100%.
Students who have an approved special consideration application will be able to complete the missed assessment for competency and if successful, a grade.
