Overview of Assessment

A student must demonstrate a clear understanding of all elements of the required competencies to be deemed competent. Assessment may include a variety of methods such as tests, workbooks, assignments, presentations and class exercises.

Formative feedback is provided throughout the course. This occurs by the teacher providing information to the student to inform them how they are succeeding in the course and areas that require more work to succeed. Formative feedback is not a piece of assessment that contributes to the student’s final result.
