Overview of Assessment

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

Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks.

Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including recording all technical documentation in a workbook, exercises completed in class, exercises completed outside class times, producing a workbook of samples, observational checklists completed by the class teacher during class exerices and verbal presentations.

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.

Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher.
All work must be submitted by the due date. Late submission will not be graded higher than a PASS.
