Get Expert's Help on Workbook Assessment

This document contains the assessment tasks for this unit of competency.

Achieving Competency

To achieve competency for this unit, students must successfully complete all five assessment tasks before a final grade can be applied.

Grading

A grade will be given to each assessment task only after a student has been deemed competent in all aspects of that assessment. This approach to marking is designed to assist those students with a desire to continue their study into higher education. For further information on how a grade will be allocated please refer to the information provided in the assessment task and the general assessment instructions

Reassessment

In the event of a not satisfactory outcome for an assessment task in this unit, the STA reassessment policy will be applied. The student will be awarded further opportunity to submit work to the Trainer/Assessor. Where the student has not been able to attain a competent mark following resubmission, a meeting will be held with the student to re-assess the individual’s learning style and the assessment method. This will be conducted between the Trainer/Assessor, the student and where appropriate, the Programs/Training Manager.

Should the student wish to appeal any decision relating to this policy and procedure, the student should refer to the Academic-Non-Academic Grievance policy and procedure.

Adjustment to assessment

Flexibility in assessment will be considered where the integrity of the assessment and learning outcome is maintained. For example, a written assessment may be administered as a verbal assessment and recorded by a STA staff member where a student has sustained an injury preventing them from writing. Any agreement for an adjustment to assessment must be documented below (or in writing to the program manager in the event of an electronically submitted assessment task and placed in your student file.)

All questions in this workbook must be answered correctly to receive a satisfactory grade for this assessment. You must achieve a satisfactory result for each question in the workbook and include referencing as per STA requirements to achieve a satisfactory result for this assessment.All answers must contain core mandatory information to achieve a satisfactory result. A satisfactory result will achieve the minimum grade required. All additional correct information will increase the grade up to the maximum for that question. For example:What are the steps in the cleaning process? (5 marks)

Listing all 5 steps will achieve a satisfactory result. (2½ marks)

Listing less than the 5 will achieve a not satisfactory result, even if explanation for those provided is included in the answer

Adding a brief, factual explanation of each step will achieve an additional 2½ marks for a total of 5 marks. (i.e. ½ mark per step)

This workbook is to be completed in your own time using available reliable sources such as the course text books provided to you at orientation, credible internet sources such as the department of health and other text and online journals available to you through the online library service offered to all students and discussed at orientation.

It is important that you reference all sources of information that you use to obtain information used in your answers. Referencing must be included and failure to adhere to this requirement will result in a not satisfactory outcome for the assessment.
