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.


Assessment Tasks

All assessment tasks are drawing based assessments to be completed in the CAD program taught in class. Each assessment gradually steps up in degrees of difficulty as the student develops and gains greater experience with the program and Engineering concepts. Below is a Marking Guideline to assist students understand the grading system and what it takes to achieve a higher grade and improve their performance. A Marking guideline matrix appears in the learning guide for this course.

Students must achieve a result of >50% for the competency test and >50% for the drawing exercise to pass this course. If a re-submission is granted, or an alternative assessment offered and a pass grade achieved, then students will not be eligible for a grade higher than 50% regardless of the standard of work. This course is graded as Competent or Not Yet Competent and subsequently the following course grades are allocated:

  • Drawing Exercises (50%)


Students must draw plans, elevations, sections and details of a concrete and steel building to specifications stipulated in the learning guide and to current relevant standards.

  • Competency Test (50%)


Students must draw sections and details of a concrete and steel building using 3rd angle projection to specifications stipulated in the learning guide and to current relevant standards.

80 - 100: CHD - Competent with High Distinction
70 - 79: CDI - Competent with Distinction
60 - 69: CC - Competent with Credit
50 - 59: CAG - Competency Achieved - Graded
0 - 49: NYC - Not Yet Competent
DNS - Did Not Submit for Assessment.

Late Submission:

If you require an Extension of Submittable Work (assignments, reports or project work etc.) for seven calendar days or less (from the original due date) and have valid reasons, you must complete an Application for Extension of Submittable Work (7 Calendar Days or less) form and lodge it with the Senior Educator/ Program Manager.

The application must be lodged no later than one working day before the official due date. You will be notified within no more than two working days of the date of lodgement as to whether the extension has been granted.

If you seek an Extension of Submittable Work for more than seven calendar days (from the original due date), you must lodge an Application for Special Consideration form under the provisions of the Special Consideration Policy, preferably prior to, but no later than two working days after the official due date.

Submittable Work (assignments, reports or project work etc.) submitted late without approval of an extension will not be accepted or marked.

Special Consideration:

Please refer to http://www.rmit.edu.au/students/specialconsideration to find more information about special consideration.
