Overview of Assessment

Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of the requirements in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks, for example:

  • analysis of responses to case studies and scenarios
  • direct questioning combined with review of portfolios of evidence and third-party workplace reports of on-the-job performance by the candidate
  • observation of role plays
  • review of draft residential and commercial leasing contract
  • review of draft contract of sale
  • review of pre-settlement and post-settlement documents
  • oral or written questioning to assess knowledge of legal terminology specific to property law.

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.  Students will be provided with feedback throughout the course to check their progress.
