Learning Outcomes

Overview of Assessment

Competency Based Assessment
Students will be provided with more than one opportunity to demonstrate competence. Competency based assessment is detailed below in “Assessment methods” and “Assessment Tasks”.

Assessment Methods
Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks.
Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including court reports, case studies, a written assignment involving problem solving, in class exercises and online exercises. 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.

Where doubt exists as to the authenticity and/or originality of students’ work, students will be required to sit an oral examination on the relevant subject matter. The mark attained through the oral will be the final mark allocated for that assessment task.
