Overview of Assessment

Assessment Methods

Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of the requirements in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks, for example:

  • direct questioning combined with review of portfolios of evidence and third party workplace reports of on-the-job performance by the candidate
  • review of final printed documents
  • demonstration of techniques
  • observation of presentations
  • oral or written questioning to assess knowledge of software applications

You are advised that you are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate your assessment work to your teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met.

You must provide evidence of the ability to:

  • develop and implement an evaluation strategy for an advertising campaign, ensuring the campaign:
    - defines standards and measurements

  • describe organisational budget planning process
  • describe and explain techniques for evaluating advertising effectiveness and managing campaign contingencies
  • identify key provisions of relevant legislation, codes of practice and national standards affecting advertising
