Overview of Assessment

 

To achieve successful completion of this course students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of competency.

Assessment tasks have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner.

Students will be awarded a grade only if competency has been demonstrated within the standard enrolment period on the first assessment attempt.

Units assessed as ’not yet competent’ on a first assessment attempt and ’competent’ on a second or subsequent attempt are to have results amended to competent but are not eligible for grading.

Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher.
All work must be submitted by the due date. Late submission will not be graded higher than a PASS.


Assessment Tasks

Assessment for these units consists of two projects.

Project 1 source materials and identify suppliers for sample design, worth 30%

and

Project 2 cost a textile product, worth 70%

Please refer to the individual project briefs for assessment criteria and grading matrix. To achieve successful completion of these programs, students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of competency.
All work for each project must be completed and submitted to your teacher by the due date to be eligible for assessment and grading. Late work will be assessed as competent or not yet competent only and will not be graded. Work submitted more than one week after the due date will be assessed as not yet competent. Please refer to your induction kit for further information on the conditions of assessment.
