Overview of Assessment
Assessment is on-going throughout the course. Assessment tasks will require you demonstrate the application of knowledge and skills through practical projects and/or written tasks. Assessment tasks are:
- Design Project 1 (30% of final grade)
- Exhibition Project 1 (50% of final grade)
- Knowledge Test 1 (10% of final grade)
- Knowledge Test 2 (10% of final grade)
Tasks and exercises in this course are either formative or summative. Feedback throughout the course may be written, verbal or a combination of both.
Formative exercises provide the basis for ongoing feedback and can be considered essential building blocks for the more substantial summative assessment tasks and you should engage in all formative tasks. The formative exercises help provide evidence of competency.
This course has 4 Summative Tasks, which must be completed. You are required to demonstrate all learning outcomes to a satisfactory standard to be deemed competent.
PLEASE TAKE SPECIAL NOTE: Assessments are NOT based solely on final submission of Tasks, if other requirements such as presentations; progress; milestones are specifically indicated on the Timeline (Teaching Schedule) and Assessment Task Instructions. Such additional items and their due dates will form part of the overall assessment.

Special Consideration Policy, Late Submission & Extensions
All assessment tasks are required to be completed to a satisfactory level.
If you are unable to complete any piece of assessment by the due date, you will need to apply for an extension.
Pick the following link for details on applying for Special consideration
Any student seeking an extension, should aim at doing so a minimum of 2 days before the deadline. Work submitted late and without an extension at any point will incur late penalties in accordance with university policy.
If you require an extension you must complete an extension form with evidence supporting your application and hand this to your instructor. Further links - Application for extension of time
On Time Submission and Impact of Late Submission
On time submission is an important factor in your assessment. Employability skills are embedded in all courses and these include Planning & Organising and Self-management. For this reason, late work impacts on your overall grade for each assessment task.
The following adjustments for late submission will be made: Grades will be reduced by 10% for each day (or part thereof), for the first two days. If submissions are three days or more late, the work will only be assessed as a pass or fail – it will not be graded. Submissions seven days or more late should still be handed in, however they will not be assessed and will be kept as a record only.
