Overview of Assessment
Students 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 assignments, journals, presentation and written or test. 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.
Detailed Assessment and Marking Guides will be provided in class:
Assessment Task One.
Working with a case study that will be provided in Week One, produce a planning and costing schedule for a major marketing project. To be completed in pairs, and may be marked separately. Value: 35 /100
Assessment Task Two.
Working in pairs develop a staffing proposal for a new marketing department, including roles, responsibilities and projected costs. May be marked individually.Value 35/100
Discuss three critical topics from a list of six, in written answers of about 600 words. Completed individually. Value 30/100
Submission Requirements for all assessments:
Assessment tasks need to be submitted via Blackboard. A hard copy may be required as well but all assessments must also be submitted electronically with an RMIT Cover Sheet.
Work to be saved in a word doc or .pdf and uploaded to assessment tab in your course blackboard shell by required time and date. Work sent by email will not be marked. Work submitted after the deadline and without one of the forms below will not be accepted or marked.
Assessment deadline extensions:
Ensure that you submit assessments on or before the due date. If you think you might not make the due date due to special circumstances you must apply for an application of extension time BEFORE the due date:
You can apply for an extension of seven or fewer days from the original due date for submission of assignments, projects, or essays. You must lodge it no later than one working day before the original submission due date. See link below for eligibility criteria and forms.
If your performance in the assessment is affected by unexpected circumstances, you should consider applying for Special Consideration. Information on the process and application forms for extension time and special consideration can be found at: http://rmit.edu.au/browse;ID=ls0ydfokry9rz.
Always retain a copy of your assessment tasks (hard copy and soft copy).
When you submit work for assessment at RMIT University you need to use a cover sheet that includes a declaration and statement of authorship. You must complete, sign and submit a cover sheet with all work you submit for assessment, whether individual or group work. Cover sheets for submission of work is available from the Student forms website.
It is the student’s responsibility to check their results and complete resubmissions by deadline set (usually within 2 weeks of receiving feedback/results). Students are entitled to one re-submission per assessment. All resubmissions will be marked to competent or non-competent only, no grades will be given. All resubmissions must be received by week 16.
Criteria for Competency
Vocational Education and Training (VET) is based on current industry needs and the focus on preparing you for the workplace. Because VET courses are informed by practical application of knowledge and skills, they are based on a system known as ‘competency based training’ (CBT). So when you are assessed in VET it is about whether you are competent to do the job, as well as having a firm grasp on the knowledge and skills required to do that job, as opposed to traditional curriculum based education settings that are often based on knowledge retention. You need to demonstrate you are competent in all of the elements of competency you are studying – which means you will need to pass every assignment as each one addresses a different element.
The Marking Guide is designed to show you what knowledge and skills you need to demonstrate in each assessment.
The Level of Performance Grading Sheet will tell you how well you are performing (tracking at a P, C, D or HD level).
Detailed Marking Guides will be distributed in class, and be available on blackboard well before Assessments are due. These will explain the critical content for each assessment and how it will be marked.
A detailed Feedback sheet showing the marking will be discussed with students after each Assessment.
After achieving competency we then grade your performance in the unit; this gives you the opportunity to have the level of your performance formally recognized against industry standards and employability skills. Performance will be graded on the Level of Performance Grading Sheet (at end)
You will receive one of the following grades:
CHD Competent with High Distinction
CDI Competent with Distinction
CC Competent with Credit
CAG Competency Achieved – Graded
