Overview of Assessment
Students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of competency to be deemed competent.
A range of assessment methods are used to assess practical skills and knowledge, for example:
• Direct questioning combined with review of portfolios of evidence and third party workplace reports of on-the-job performance by the candidate
• Review of authenticated documents from the workplace or training environment
• Demonstration of techniques
Students will be expected to complete and demonstrate a variety of exercises which they have performed in the classroom. All files must be created individually, and submitted or demonstrated when requested. In some cases printouts may be required.
Working in teams, students will plan and develop a static Website for a small business using the latest standards in HTML and CSS The site will be designed, styled and laid-out with stylesheets developed by team members.
Stage 1: HTML & basic CSS from each team member
Stage 2: Initial HTML & CSS from team as whole
Stage 3: Final HTML & CSS from team as a whole
There will be a major in-class practical test in which students will be required to demonstrate how to create a Web page using HTML and style the page using CSS. Resources such as Websites, textbooks and previously written code may be used.

Competency and grading requirements:
To be deemed competent students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of this competency. Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over multiple tasks.
Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their work to their teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met.
All competency-based assessments for this course must be completed in order to achieve a CA (Competency Achieved) award.
Each assessment task will also carry a numerical weighting to be used for grading purposes. The grade applied will only be awarded if a CA has been achieved in all compulsory assessment tasks.
If a student has been assessed as NYC (Not Yet Competent) in any of the assessment tasks, the weighting will carry no value until the student has obtained a CA.
If a CA is achieved on re-assessment, a maximum mark of 50% of the original weighting will be granted for that assessment.
Re-assessments will only be granted to students who were either unsuccessful in the first attempt, or have an approved application for special consideration.
