RMIT will provide you with resources and tools for learning in this course through our online systems and access to specialised facilities and relevant software. You will also have access of the library resources at RMIT.


Overview of Assessment

Assessment is on-going throughout the course. Assessment will incorporate a range of methods to assess performance and the application of knowledge and skills and will include practical tasks and practical projects.

Assessment tasks are:

1. Project 1 40%

2. Project 2 30%

3. Project 3 30%

An assessment charter summarises your responsibilities as an RMIT student as well as those of your teachers.


 


Assessment Tasks

Assessment tasks in this course are either formative or summative. Formative tasks provide the basis for ongoing feedback and can be considered essential building blocks for the more substantial summative assessment tasks. Summative assessment tasks in this course are graded.

Feedback throughout the course may be written, verbal or a combination of both.

To demonstrate competency in this course you need to complete each one of the following pieces of assessment to a satisfactory standard.
The submitted projects will be assessed with written feedback as well as a quality indicator that relates to separate components of the project and the overall outcome.

Certificate 4 in Design will undertake the following:
3X Projects with related tasks
Research and realise creative ideas using 3 Dimensional skills and applications

Project 1
Research, realise and explore 3 Dimensional skills and techniques to create products suitable for the market place
Due week 7

Project 2
Explore design processes, research, realization and production using appropriate materials skills, techniques and applications and evaluate design solutions and presentation.
Due week 11

Project 3
Explore design processes, research, realization and production using appropriate materials skills, techniques and applications and evaluate design solutions and presentation.
Due week 17

Grades which apply to courses delivered in accordance with competency- based assessment, but which also use graded assessment:

Other Information

Attendance
The major learning experience involves studio based exercises, demonstration and production. It is strongly advised that students attend all sessions in order to engage in the required learning activities, ensuring the maximum opportunity to gain the competency.
Feedback - You will receive verbal and written feedback by teacher on your work. This feedback also includes suggestions on how you can proceed to the next stage of developing your projects.
Student feedback at RMIT
Student Progress
Monitoring academic progress is an important enabling and proactive strategy to assist you to achieve your learning potential. Student progress policy
Special consideration Policy
All assessment tasks are required to be completed to a satisfactory level. If you are unable to complete any piece of assessment by the due date, you will need to apply for an extension.
Please refer to the following URL for extensions and special consideration:
www.rmit.edu.au/students/specialconsideration/online
Late Submission & Extensions

Any student seeking an extension, should aim at doing so a minimum of 2 days before the deadline. Work submitted late and without an extension at any point will incur late penalties in accordance with university policy.
If you require an extension you must complete an extension form with evidence supporting your application and hand this to your instructor.
Extension form link – Application for extension of time
On Time Submission and Impact of Late Submission
On time submission is an important factor in your assessment. Employability skills are embedded in all courses and these include Planning & Organising and Self-management. For this reason, late work impacts on your overall grade for each assessment task. The following adjustments for late submission will be made. Grades will be reduced by 10%, for each day (or part thereof), for the first two days. If submissions are three days or more late, the work will only be assessed as a pass or fail - and not graded. Submissions seven days or more late, should still be handed in, however they will not be assessed and will be kept as a record only.
Cover Sheet for Submissions
You must complete a submission cover sheet for every piece of submitted work. This signed sheet acknowledges that you are aware of the plagiarism implications.
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 go to http://www.rmit.edu.au/academicintegrity/
