Overview of Assessment

Assessment is on-going throughout the course. Assessment will incorporate a range of methods to assess performance and the application of knowledge and skills.
Assessment tasks are:
2 x major projects

Please note: All Assessment tasks need to be completed before competency is achieved. A number of tasks will be formative to show your progress and development of skills and knowledge throughout the semester. The final task will be summative to provide a level of performance in addition to your competency.

The RMIT assessment charter summarises your responsibilities as a student as well as those of your teachers.  

Assessment Tasks

1 A folio of work is to be submitted at the end of the course in week 16, this will include all exercises and assessable jobs . This will give you the opportunity to make any final amendments to work before final submission. This will be graded at 25% value

2 Shop Drawing - You will draft up detailed plans and elevations of a retail store to meet AS1100 drafting conventions. You will produce drawings to nominated scales discussed in class. You will be required to demonstrate an understanding of, and competency in technical drawing skills such as, scale, notation, layout, accuracy, reference symbols, abbreviations, dimensioning, sectioning, and using technical drafting equipment. This will be graded at 75% value

For submission time lines refer to 16 week "Teaching Schedule".
