Overview of Assessment
This course is to be delivered and assessed as part of a Land Development Project within a simulated workplace environment and under a normal range of work conditions.
The assessment is done through a combination of:
• Production of project based deliverables to industry standards including the submission of an "Expression of Interest" and supporting documents.
• Presentation of a portfolio in accordance with the program standards (SIS Quality Plan) including references, coursework, reports and management records.
Assessment 1 = Engineering setout exam
Assessment 2 = Cadastral setout exam
Assessment 3 = Major project
Element: Communicate project requirements = Assessment 1, 2, 3
Element: Determine resource requirements = Assessment 1, 2, 3
Element: Develop project plan = Assessment 1, 2, 3
The assessment for this course requires students to maintain and present on request a Training Record Book that details their participation in both simulated and workplace assessment activities and achievement of the units or elements of competence which underpin delivery of this course.
Assessment due dates will be issued on commencement of the course. Submission of all prescribed assessment tasks by the due dates is expected.
Students are required to participate in the OH&S induction program for this course and at all times follow the occupational health and safety policies and procedures demonstrating appropriate behaviours to ensure the safety of self and others.
