Other Information

Competency and grading requirements

 To be deemed competent students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of this competency. Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over multiple tasks.
Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their work to their teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met.
All competency-based assessments  for this course must be completed in order to achieve a CA (Competency Achieved) award.
Each assessment task will also carry a numerical weighting to be used for grading purposes. The grade applied will only be awarded if a CA has been achieved in all compulsory assessment tasks.
If a student has been assessed as NYC (Not Yet Competent) in any of the assessment tasks, the weighting will carry no value until the student has obtained a CA.
If a CA is achieved on re-assessment, a maximum mark of 50% of the original weighting will be granted for that assessment.
Re-assessments will only be granted to students who were either unsuccessful in the first attempt, or have an approved application for special consideration.
A final exam worth 20% will be offered to students who have achieved CA level.
