Learning Outcomes

Overview of Assessment

Learning Activities

The subject will be taught through computer laboratory sessions as well as student participation in the Group Assignment. Similarly a comprehension of other groups work will also assist in gaining a better understanding of the topic.

Theories and concepts will be explored during the class which will give students the opportunity to assess their comprehension and understanding of the various elements of the course.

Learner activity:

Students will take an active role during the class.

• Groups will reflect upon and discuss key concepts.
• Individuals and groups will apply concepts to current ‘real world’ situations.
• Students will summarise key points.
• Students will analyse case studies and participate in simulations
• Groups will respond to questions arising out of their individual presentations.

The use of ‘real world’ CASE STUDIES will facilitate the understanding of the theoretical concepts and students will be encouraged to use lateral thinking. At the end of the semester students will be requested to complete a ‘Program Survey’.

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
The student must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of a particular competency to be deemed competent. 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 technical requirements documentation, online activies and in class exercises, written tests, practical problem solving exercises, presentations and practical tests. 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.
