Overview of Assessment

This course is to be delivered and assessed as part of a Geographical Information System Project within a simulated workplace environment and under a normal range of work conditions.
The assessment is done through a combination of:
• Practical and theoretical exercises carried out in a simulated workplace
• Production of project based deliverables to industry standards using relevant computer software, GIS and drafting packages
• Computation Tests
• Presentation of a portfolio in accordance with the program standards (SIS Quality Plan) including references, coursework, reports and management records.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment 1: GIS Phase 1

Assessment Matrix

Element: Analyse, compute and design = Assessment 1
Element: Present analysis, computations and design = Assessment 1

Other Information

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 dates.
Assessment due dates will be issued on commencement of the course. Submission of all prescribed assessment tasks by the due dates is expected.
