Results/Re-assessmentThe Assessor will grade the assessment and record the result on the front page of this document (S) – Satisfactory if all observable behaviours are correct and (NS) not satisfactory if any areas are left incorrectFeedback will be provided on either resultWhere a student receives a ‘NS – Not Satisfactory’ result, the assessor will discuss the area of the non-compliant observable behaviour and an opportunity given for re-assessment. This may be through direct observation or a different method of assessment e.g., verbal/oral questioning, problem solving exercise. If the outcome is again not satisfactory the student result will be deemed (NYC) not yet competent. Additional feedback will be given, and a time agreed upon for further assessment after additional training and skills practice has taken place, this information will be recorded, dated and signed in the re-assessment area on the last page of this documentWhere all the assessment tasks have been graded (S) Satisfactory, the student will be deemed C – Competent for the practical component and the result recorded and signed in the area indicated on the last page of this document
Reasonable AdjustmentIf the participant is unable to undertake the written assessment as designed, an interview (verbal questioning) may be used as an alternate approach.
