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 a review of portfolios of evidence, review of authenticated documents from the training environment and demonstration of techniques.
In addition to the assessments, formative feedback is provided to the students throughout the duration of the course.
FULL TIME ONLY
Travel Project - Due Week 17 (70%)
In a small group of THREE, students will create a travel project based on the assignment criteria given in class and available on the Learning Hub. The travel project consists of preparing travel documentation for a business trip. This is evidence of the students’ classroom learning and practical application of their skills. Refer to the Learning Hub for the marking criteria sheet and details of the project requirements.
Group Presentation based on Travel Project - Due Week 16 (30%)
Based on the travel project scenario, students will make their small group presentation using the marking criteria as a guide. The presentation will include both the theory introduced in the classroom and evidence of research of the travel project. PowerPoint will not be used, however Internet WebPages may be referred to. Each student will present a section of work ensuring the whole project is addressed in the presentation.

A pass in an assessment piece will result in a grade for the student. Where a pass is achieved competency for that assessment is given. Where a pass is not achieved in any assessment piece a NYC (Not Yet Competent) grade will be given. Competency MUST be achieved for each element of competency within a competency standard for a pass grade (or higher grade) to be given. Where competency for all elements of competency is not achieved, an overall NN grade will result.
