Overview of Assessment

You  will undertake a fully integrated Design project brief which will require you  undertake market research , develop a range of designs, present a folio and then put designs into production developing prototype concepts. The project will require students to be actively involved in group discussions during sessions and to undertake project work in a professional manner.

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.
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.
