5.   Assessment Plan                                                                                          

Assessments for this unit have been developed by taking into account assessment guidelines as provided in the training package and evidence requirements stipulated in this unit of competency. Assessment is an ongoing process of gathering evidence to determine what each student/learner knows, understands and can do in order to inform teaching and support learning of the intended curriculum.

The purposes of this assessment are;

  • To collect evidences that demonstrate competency in the performance criteria of the unit and satisfy skill, knowledge and employability skills requirements
    • To provide feedback to the learners/trainees indicating the areas of improvement and professional development
    • To measure the effectiveness of the delivery plan and evaluate the learning outcomes The required assessment criteria are provided in each assessment task for learner’s information. Assessment Method

Assessment in this unit is based on assessment and evidence guidelines provided in the unit of competency and the training package. The evidence is generated through summative assessment tasks. However, the role of Formative Tasks is crucial in developing the required skills and knowledge in completing the summative tasks. Formative tasks enable the trainers to evaluate their own delivery and adjust their facilitation based on the outcomes from these tasks. The role of formative assessments is to improve learning and adapt to student needs.

These tasks and activities usually take place throughout the unit and planned in accordance with the summative assessment plan/schedule. The formative tasks are generally referred to as “Portfolio” tasks. Portfolio is a collection of all the formative tasks completed during the learning sessions. The portfolio can be used by students as an evidence of participation or example of work completed as part of their learning.

Formative tasks are not assessed.

For summative tasks, the following assessment methods are available to collect the aforementioned evidence to demonstrate satisfactory performance in this unit;

  • Written Assessment Tasks
    • Practical/Analytical Tasks
    • Test/Examinations
    • Projects
    • Observation
    • Integrated Assessment

The Written Assessment Tasks and Tests have been developed to address various parts of Performance Criteria as well as Required Knowledge.

The Practical Tasks are developed to demonstrate competence in Required Skills. These assessment tasks and activities are mostly designed as in-class assessments, enabling the trainers to observe the work being undertaken and completed (i.e. demonstration of a specific/required skill). Practical tasks may also include use of online learning tools, equipment, activities, or use of software. Instructions for practical tasks are generally provided within the task description. However, trainers/assessor may set certain conditions for conducting and observing these tasks.

The Project (Individual or Group based) addresses various aspects of competency standard including Performance Criteria, Required Skills and Employability Skills. The role of the project in assessment strategy is to measure student/trainee competence as a form of Summative Assessment. It demonstrates the efficacy of instructions and learning in the prescribed delivery period by assessing the overall performance of the students/trainees for the purpose of grading/final results.

The Test/Exam is generally designed to test the Required Knowledge component of the unit of competency. It may also be used to reinforce learning and test specific aspects of other part of competency where knowledge of certain processes/procedures is required. A knowledge test may be verbal or written as specified in the task description. Examinations are conducted under set conditions.

Observation forms part of in-class activities, participation in designated group processes, presentation and provides an option where specific skills need to be demonstrated to the assessor.

Some of the assessments in this course may be used as Integrated Assessments; i.e. to use evidence created in one unit/task to determine competency in another unit/task. The concept behind the design of the integrated assessment is to limit repetitive tasks that test the same or similar competency elements in different units of competency.

Optional/Supplementary Assessments

In addition to the above assessment instruments, the following methods can be used, if required, in the context of assessment for this unit of competence, especially in the circumstances where assessment involved components of online learning as well as actual workplace activities and/or performance.

  • Workplace Verification through RPL application
    • Competency Conversation at completion of the unit

To successfully complete this unit, learners must demonstrate that they have the skills and knowledge needed as indicated in the Competency Standards (2).

Assessment can be both a formative and summative process. Formative assessment is used to provide feedback to students and teachers to promote further learning. Summative assessment contributes to the judgement of student learning for competency/award purposes.

Submission of Work

All the written works must be submitted in a hard copy, and an additional soft/electronic copy if required by the trainer/assessor, with an accompanying “Assessment Cover Sheet”. Each Assessment Cover Sheet should be signed by the student and must contain student details and date of submission. Assessment Cover Sheets are available at the reception.

Material submitted for assessment—Word processed or handwritten assignments, reports, essays, projects, etc. must contain student’s name, ID (if available), address and contact details. Within the context of these assessment tasks, the assessor fulfils the role of client, manager or supervisor, as applicable. Work submitted for “approval” within this context must demonstrate care and attention to detail, such that the student inspires confidence that the work is being undertaken competently.

Where soft copy/electronic files are submitted, students are encouraged to name the files according to established procedure. This would typically include a course or unit code, assessment or submission code, and in the case of multiple files an alphanumeric identifier. Multiple files may also be required to be submitted within an enclosing folder (with similar, appropriate naming conventions) or archive format—e.g. zip or rar.

Follow submission guidelines in each assessment task for specific instructions.

Students with Special Needs

If leaners/learners have any special needs (e.g. physical disability, learning difficulty) regarding assessment, they should be directed to discuss these with the Course Coordinator. The college will endeavour to make all possible and reasonable adjustments to any aspect of assessment in order to address those needs. Some examples of additional support could include:

  • Language, literacy and numeracy (LLN)
    • Assistive technology
    • Additional materials or tutorials
    • Assistance in using technology for online delivery components.
Reasonable adjustment

Reasonable adjustment refers to any modification made to the learning environment, certification requirements, training delivery or assessment method to help learners with a disability access and participate in education and training on the same basis as those without disability (IBSA, 2015).

The Disability Standards for Education 2005 were formed under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992. They clarify the obligations of training providers to ensure that learners who have a disability are able to access and participate in education and training on the same basis as those without disability.

Some examples of reasonable adjustments could include:

  • Personal support services, e.g. a reader, Auslan interpreter, a scribe
    • assistive technology or special equipment, e.g. screen readers, magnifiers, alternative keyboards
    • modifying the presentation method, e.g. visual, oral, print, electronic
    • adjustments to timeframes, e.g. providing materials prior to class, extended time limits
    • adjustment of the physical environment, e.g. specific furniture, arrangement of classroom.

The determination of “reasonableness” requires judgement that must take into account the impact on the RTO and the need to maintain the integrity of the qualification. While reasonable adjustments can be made to the ways in which evidence of performance is gathered and demonstrated, the criteria for making Competent/Not Yet Competent decisions (and/or awarding grades) should not be altered in any way. That is to say, the standards expected should be the same irrespective of the group and/or individual being assessed (Disability Standards for Education 2005).

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Credit Transfers

Learners may apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) by providing evidence that they have the required skills and knowledge in the specific areas of competency through work/industry experience and/or completed eligible assessments in equivalent or higher qualification.

Appropriate credit transfer may be granted to eligible learners against each unit of competency on evidence to successful completion of the same unit in an equivalent or higher nationally endorsed qualification. Credit transfer learners will finish the course in a shorter duration and are advised to consult appropriate authorities/bodies for applicable criteria if planning further study or stay in Australia.

Applicants who have completed formal training or who have relevant and current work or life experience and consider they are able to meet the unit purpose may seek recognition.

The college acknowledges skills and knowledge obtained through:

  • Formal training (conducted by industry or educational institutions in Australia or overseas)
    • Work experience
    • Life experience

The main focus is on the learning outcomes of these experiences, not on how, when or where the learning occurred.

To be granted RPL, applicants will be asked to:

  1. Present evidence of their achievement; and/or
  2. Undertake a challenge test; and/or
  3. Attend an interview with specialist staff.

This evidence will be validated through either satisfactory supporting documentation of support from a recognised industry or workplace representative or challenge testing
