Overview of Assessment

To achieve successful completion of this course, students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of competency.


Assessment tasks have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner.   Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including recording all technical documentation in a workbook, producing a folio of woven samples and observational checklists completed by the class teacher during class exercises.


Students will be awarded a grade only if competency has been demonstrated within the standard enrolment period on the first assessment attempt. Units assessed as ‘not yet competent’ on a first assessment attempt and ‘competent’ on a second or subsequent attempt are to have results amended to competent but are not eligible for grading. Detailed information about grading and assessment will be provided in class.
