Learning Outcomes

Overview of Assessment

Students must demonstrate all elements of competency through a variety of methods showing their understanding of elements of a particular competency to be deemed competent.

Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievements of each competency in a flexible manner.  Assessments will incorporate a variety of methods: analysis of responses to case studies and scenarios, demonstration of techniques, review of documentation outlining procedures developed for the use of the system as demonstrated in the Record Consultant’s report, oral or written questioning to assess knowledge of general principles and processes of recordkeeping systems. Independent and group based research will develop competency including the underpinning skills and knowledge.

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