Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over multiple tasks.
To be deemed competent students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of a competency including employability skills.
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.
Students must achieve competency (CA) in each competency based assessment task.
Each assessment task will also carry a numerical weighting to be used for grading purposes to reflect participation, quality and professionalism.
A student’s final grade will be the total of their accumulated marks across all assessment tasks.
