Overview of Assessment
Overview of Assessment This unit of competency is co-delivered and assessed with: CHCCCS011 Meet personal support needs There will be three forms of assessment including knowledge quizzes, simulated assessments and practical assessments undertaken in the work place. The assessment tasks are as follows: Task 1: Knowledge quizzes Task 2: Practical demonstration (Resident vehicle transfer) Task 3: Simulation activity (fall recovery) Task 4: Practical observation (Personal support needs - low care) Task 5: Practical observation (Personal support needs - high care)
Assessment tasks Task 1: Knowledge quiz Your knowledge quiz is broken up into multiple, smaller, module quizzes that make up one assessment task. This assessment task allows you to demonstrate your knowledge of personal support and healthy body systems. There are five groups of questions developed around the course modules. Each question group contains a mixture of question types; including multiple choice, true/false and matching questions that all relate to work relevant scenarios. Task 2: Practical demonstration (Resident vehicle transfer) In this task, you are required to demonstrate your ability to safely transfer resident with low care needs using a mobility aid (wheelchair or four wheeled walking frame), into and out of a vehicle (car/bus). Task 3: Simulation activity (fall recovery) In this task, you are required to demonstrate and discuss your organisation’s fall recovery response procedures. You will be presented with a person acting as a resident who has had a fall. It is your responsibility to deal with this safely and in line with your organisations procedures. You will be the only staff member to see the fall and you will have to respond appropriately. Task 4: Practical observation (Personal support needs - low care) In this task, you are required to demonstrate your ability to support a resident with low care needs with their various activities of daily living (ADL’s). Task 5: Practical observation (Personal support needs - high care) In this task, you are required to demonstrate your ability to support a resident with high care needs with their various activities of daily living (ADL’s).
Students have access to the marking rubric for each assessment task via the Cluster 2 CANVAS shell
Work Integrated Learning Throughout the program you will undertake two days per week of supervised work placement which will assist you to develop the skills and knowledge required to work as a personal care assistant. In preparation for work placement you will be required to sign a tri-party Work Integrated Learning agreement. You will need to purchase two RMIT polo tops for work placement. Early Termination of Placement Under section 6 of the WIL Procedure, a placement may be ended early by the host organisation or School due to the student’s conduct and/or performance during the placement. Possible reasons for such decisions may include, but are not limited to: • failure to follow processes required for safety • breach of client or patient confidentiality • failure to comply with the instructions of supervisors • or other unprofessional behaviour Where a placement ends early, a meeting will be convened to discuss the sequence of events that led to the termination. This meeting will precede any consideration of a student’s progress by the Progress Panel (if applicable) or Program Assessment Board. Police Check Evidence of a current National Police Records Check (with no disclosures) must be provided prior to commencing the program. Once enrolled RMIT will facilitate your application via fit2work. You are responsible for the associated costs. Commonwealth Statutory Declaration It is a requirement that all students who undertake Aged Care placement must supply a current Commonwealth Statutory Declaration. Immunisations It is recommended that all students who undertake Aged Care placement comply with the Department of Health immunisation guidelines. Attendance It is expected that you will attend all intensive face to face sessions and work placement days to maximum your learning opportunities. Extension Extension of time for assessment tasks may be granted where circumstances beyond your control prevent submission by the published due date. Speak with your teacher or course coordinator regarding applying for an extension. Special Consideration If you are seeking an extension of more than seven calendar days (from the original due date) you must lodge an Application for Special Consideration form, preferably prior to, but no later than two working days after the official due date.
