Type of Assessment

This summative practical assessment, along with your written questions, will enable your Assessor to make a judgement of competency against the requirements of this unit of competency.

Assessor Instructions

The Assessment Benchmark developed for each unit of competency is the evidence criteria used to judge the quality of performance (i.e. the assessment decision-making rules).  Assessors must use these benchmarks to make judgement on whether competency has been achieved and to determine if the participant has performed to the standard expected to meet unit requirement and learning outcomes.  Competency results for each unit are recorded in the Record of Assessment Form.

Reasonable Adjustment

AHMI will allow flexibility in relation to the way in which each unit is delivered and assessed based on the student’s requirement.  The following are the reasonable adjustments for this unit:

Reasonable adjustment for this unit College Based On-Line Delivery
Assistance of a Learning Support Teacher for LLN issues    
Modifications to physical environment, e.g. wheelchair access    
Changes to course design, e.g. instead of written assessment task – change to verbal questioning & assessor to write the answers    
Changes in lecture schedules and arrangements, e.g. relocating classes to an accessible venue    
Modifications to computer equipment in the computer lab    
Provision of information or course materials in accessible format, e.g.  a text book in braille    
Supply of specialised equipment or services, e.g. a note taker for a student who cannot write    

Assessment Coding

Assessment of this program of study is based on competency-based principles.

S          = Satisfactory

NS       = Not Satisfactory

Students who fail to perform satisfactorily for the assessment on the prescribed date may be assessed as ‘not satisfactory’. You are required to be assessed as ‘Satisfactory’ on completion of this Assessment.




Any re-assessment is conducted as soon as practicable after you have been informed of the requirement to be re-assessed and have been given the opportunity to be re-trained and assimilate the training.  You are re-assessed in only the areas assessed NS.  It is at the assessor/s discretion to re-assess the entire assessment should it be demonstrated an overall understanding of this unit has not been achieved.
