Assessment Task 2 – Skills Test

Skills Test:

Scenario:

Devon Technical College is a private Registered Training Organisation (RTO) with a campus based in Western Melbourne. It offers over 40 certificate and diploma level qualifications in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector for a large number of subject areas including business, community services, education, information technology, health, hospitality, and many others.

Students select from one of two study shifts (morning or afternoons) to undertake study which is self-directed in nature or trainer led, and to undertake assessments. With the self-directed courses, trainers/assessors are on hand to handle student’s queries, while other courses are trainer led.

There are currently 450 students that attend the institute across a wide range of classrooms. Depending on their studies, students who require access to a computer are given access Windows 10 desktop machine and a word processor and other software applicable to their studies plus access the internet. For classes that are self-directed, all learning materials are provided in print format, as are the assessments.

Student management is undertaken on a bespoke application called “Student Manager”. Student Manager is a tool used to record student attendance, unit completion, student’s notes, and other applicable student management tasks.

Devon Technical College use a mixture of laptops and desktop machines which all have Windows 10 and Microsoft Office 2016 installed on them. The network is managed by two servers:

  • An Admin server has Windows Server 2016 installed on it and is used by the employees of Devon Technical College. It includes active directory, DNS, DHCP, and acts as the gateway to the internet. It also asks as an application server for the Student manager application and its associated database.
  • A Student server also has Windows Server 2016 installed on it and is used by the students for study purposes. It also has active directory on it, and a separate domain implementing DNS and DHCP services.

Network Attached Storage is used for accessing both staff and student files. A UPS is used to protect the network from power loss and electrical surges.

The current network diagram of how the network components fits together is shown as follows:

A portion of the organisations Strategic Plan containing strategic goals is provided below:

Mission

To provide quality education.

Vision

To become Australia’s number one education provider using modern technologies and teaching platforms.

Objectives

The current objectives are listed as follows:

  • To deliver first-class education using modern technologies
  • To provide customer service excellence beyond expectations
  • To implement sustainable practices

Strategic Goals

The current goals are listed as follows:

  • To offer students new ways of learning
  • To expand throughout Australia
  • Increase student numbers for the 2019 year

Activity 5: (Undertake cost-benefit analysis)

Note: This activity is in continuation of the previous activities

The Action Plan has been finalised, and the new Learning Management System (LMS) has been operational for the last year.

Your supervisor has tasked you to monitor the resource usage of the LMS and determine whether the project was cost effective for the organisation or not. You have recorded the following values and made the following assumptions:

  • The LMS cost $50,000 to implement (note this value is only applicable for the first year.
  • Maintenance costs for the LMS system have been valued at $100,000 for the first year. You have made the assumption that this figure will increase by 5% per year.
  • 30% increase in numbers which has adding extra income of $200,000 for the first year. You have made the assumption that this figure will increase by 10% per year.

Based on the figure provided above, complete a 5 years Cost-benefit Analysis (CBA) by completing the CBA table using the following organisational template:

Appendix A: Reasonable Adjustments

Write (task name and number) where reasonable adjustments have been applied:  
           
Reasonable Adjustments  
Students with carer responsibilities, cultural or religious obligations, English as an additional language, disability etc. can request for reasonable adjustments. Please note, academic standards of the unit/course will not be lowered to accommodate the needs of any student, but there is a requirement to be flexible about the way in which it is delivered or assessed. The Disability Standards for Education requires institutions to take reasonable steps to enable the student with a disability to participate in education on the same basis as a student without a disability. The trainer/assessor must complete the section below “Reasonable Adjustment Strategies Matrix” to ensure the explanation and correct strategy have been recorded and implemented. The trainer/assessor must notify the administration/compliance and quality assurance department for any reasonable adjustments made. All evidence and supplementary documentation must be submitted with the assessment pack to the administration/compliance and quality assurance department.
