Assessment Workbook Checklist

Before you commence your assessment, ensure that you have a good knowledge of the subject, have thoroughly read your Learner Resource, and clearly understand the assessment requirements and the expectations of the industry to which the assessment is related.

Assessments are designed to be completed using your industry/organisation, but your Registered Training Organisation (RTO) may assist you by contextualising the unit to be completed in a simulated workplace environment.

Where the observation task may be difficult for the assessor to directly observed, a video recording of the practical observation task must be submitted as supplementary evidence. Verification from at least one third-party signatory, and preferably two or more witnesses is required to confirm your demonstration of these practical knowledge and skills. These witnesses would usually be your current or recent supervisors, or your assessor.

The practical assessment tasks may be completed using your own workplace, a simulated environment, or a mix of both, as instructed by your assessor. To contextualise this assessment to your industry/organisation, you may be asked by your assessor to provide additional information based on your industry/organisation.

Instructions are given for each task. If you have questions, or unclear how to proceed, consult with your assessor.

Reasonable Adjustment

Adapted Reasonable Adjustment in teaching, learning and assessment for learners with a disability – November 2010 – Prepared by – Queensland VET Development Centre

Reasonable adjustment in VET is the term applied to modifying the learning environment or making changes to the training delivered to assist a learner with a disability. A reasonable adjustment can be as simple as changing classrooms to be closer to amenities or installing a particular type of software on a computer for a person with vision impairment.

Why make a reasonable adjustment?

We make reasonable adjustments in VET to make sure that learners with a disability have:

  • The same learning opportunities as learners without a disability, and
  • The same opportunity to perform and complete assessments as those without a disability.

Reasonable adjustment applied to participation in teaching, learning and assessment activities can include:

  • Customising resources and assessment activities within the training package or accredited course
  • Modifying the presentation medium
  • Learner support
  • Use of assistive/adaptive technologies
  • Making information accessible both before enrolment and during the course
  • Monitoring the adjustments to ensure learners needs continue to be met

Assistive/Adaptive Technologies

Assistive/Adaptive technology means ‘software or hardware that has been specifically designed to assist people with disabilities in carrying out daily activities’ (World Wide Web Consortium – W3C). It includes screen readers, magnifiers, voice recognition software, alternative keyboards, devices for grasping, visual alert systems, digital note-takers.

IMPORTANT:

Reasonable adjustment made for collecting learner assessment evidence must not impact on the standard expected by the workplace, as expressed by the relevant unit(s) of competency. For example, if the assessment were gathering evidence of the learner’s competency in writing, allowing the learner to complete the assessment verbally would not be a valid assessment method. The method of assessment used by any reasonable adjustment must still meet the competency requirements.

Resources Required for Assessment

To complete the Practical Assessment tasks, you will require access to:

  • Computer with internet and email access, and a working web browser
  • Installed software: Word, Adobe Acrobat Reader

Question 11
Read the following scenario about problem solving and decision making in the workplace. Answer the questions that follow.
 
Scenario 1 Kris works as a Human Resource staff at The Continent Hotel, a premier hotel in Australia. The organisation lost four workers in the previous week due to various reasons, and the department is now understaffed. To resolve the loss of manpower, Kris encouraged an increase in the hiring efforts to replace lost workers. However, until the lost manpower is replaced, the organisation must compensate this by requiring the current workers to work for longer hours so that productivity is uncompromised. This caused the workers to express dismay on the extra hours they spend without compensation. Kris advised management to provide overtime pay to the workers that needs to work extra hours.
Identify the solution that Kris advised to resolve the loss of manpower.
     
Identify the solution that Kris advised to resolve workers expressing dismay over the organisation’s new policy.
     
Scenario 2 Hustle is an art gallery known for featuring contemporary art in Australia. In summer times, Hustle’s art gallery becomes too humid for guests to enter. To resolve this, the gallery opens their back windows to let air circulate inside the premises. However, this is still not enough to make the area conducive for guests to visit. The management team of Hustle identified other solutions to the issue: Installation of air conditioning which would require $10,000 monthly running costInstallation of fans around the gallery which would require $1,000 monthly running costClose down temporarily during summer times to avoid extra expenses Knowing that the gallery barely exceeds a monthly profit of $10,000, installing air conditioning would not be advisable as this would only consume bulk of the monthly profit. Closing down the gallery temporarily during summer times would cut extra expenses but would consequently lose profit that the gallery uses to sustain its monthly expenses. Installing fans around the gallery would both solve the heat issue and keep the finances of the gallery afloat, and thus, was chosen as the best choice to make.
Outline the three solutions to the issue found by the management team of Hustle.
     
     
     
In 30 words or more, briefly explain how the management chose installation of fans as the best decision to make.

Scenario 1 Jacob is the manager of The Lounge, a bar in The Continent Hotel. As the manager, he oversees the operations of the bar and manages staff workload and schedules. Every October, F1 racing occurs around the area of the hotel. Guests from all over the world swarm the hotel and, consequently, the bar. Due to increase in volume of people coming in, Jacob hires extra temporary staff that would assist in keeping up with the orders of the guests. Since the bar can normally sit 100 people and experiences about 200 people during October, Jacob must also designate extra table and chairs to accommodate the increased number of guests. Occasionally, the bar also extends from closing at 2am to 4am to adjust to the volume of people coming out of the bar periodically.

Tee Up is open every day, including weekends and holidays, from 6am to 9pm. Robert must ensure that enough staff are working in the golf range at all times. A recent government ordinance requires a 4-day work terms for all staff in Australia. This forces the golf range to lessen the workloads of staff.

Scenario 1 Rita is the safety officer of The Continent Hotel, a premier hotel in Australia. Rita’s main responsibility is to ensure that the organisation is implementing safe practices during work operations. She conducts random checks on areas of the hotel to see if employees comply to safe work practices. During one of her random checks, she found a maintenance crew mopping the hallway while smoking a cigarette. She immediately approaches the maintenance crew to stop him from smoking and explained the hazards it potentially produces. Smoking in the hallway not only causes smoke harmful to guests and co-workers, but also unpleasant for guests to see.

He found two of his men working with the repairs without wearing hard hats and safety harnesses. This violates the local state ordinance that people working in elevated areas must always wear proper personal protective equipment, in this case, hard hats and safety harnesses. Stephen pulled out the two men who were violating the safety practices to avoid non-compliance to the local state ordinance. Additionally, he supervised the whole repair process to ensure that the employees always wear proper personal protective equipment.
