Overview of Assessment

Assessment are conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the performance criteria set out in the National Training Package. Students are required to undertake summative assessments that bring together knowledge and skills. To successfully complete this course you will be required to demonstrate competency in each assessment tasks detailed under the Assessment Task Section.

Your assessment for this course will be marked using the following table:

NYC (<50%) Not Yet Competent

CAG (50-59%) Competent - Pass

CC (60-69%) Competent - Credit

CDI (70-79%) Competent - Distinction

CHD (80-100%) Competent - High Distinction

This is a competency-based course and competency must be demonstrated for each element (shown above) to achieve competency for the course.
The elements and performance criteria are contained within the topics as listed in the teaching schedule on the BlackBoard.
Each topic will be assessed using the form of assessment and weighting shown below.
Short quizzes will be held during classes to provide student feedback but these will not contribute towards formal assessment.
