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.
Written Test - Concepts and Theories – Individual - (Due in class Week 14)
This quiz will test key theoretical concepts and application of basic theoretical principles. This is an individual assessment, is closed book and must be completed within the allocated time period.
Major Assignment Part 1 & 2 – (Due in class – Part 1 Week 7 and Part 2 Week 12)
The second assessment tasks will require students to present their findings in a professionally prescribed written document. Much of this work will be undertaken both outside of class time and in the “Practical Sessions”. Students are encouraged to use all the resources at their disposal to provide professionally reasoned solutions to the problems given
Additional notes to students:
All assessments must be passed in order to pass the course. If a student receives an NYC for any assessment, or part of an assessment, they will not be deemed competent for the course and therefore will receive an overall grade of NYC.
More detailed assessment sheets for each assessment task will be disseminated throughout course delivery.
