AGREEMENT       DATE: Marks (%) Satisfactory / Not Satisfactory Assessor: Date: Overall feedback: Guidelines for Students How is this module assessed? After completion of this assessment, you will be given a result of ‘Satisfactory’ or ‘Not Satisfactory’. The assessor will give you feedback via Moodle and you will have an opportunity to submit additional evidence, if you have received a ‘Not Satisfactory’ result. You will be allowed one (1) opportunity to resubmit the same assessment task, if required. For a ‘Satisfactory’ result in this assessment, all questions must be answered to a satisfactory standard and you must achieve an overall mark of 60% or above. Once all assessment tasks for this module have been completed, you will be given a final module result of ‘Competent’ or ‘Not Yet Competent’. If you are deemed ‘Not Yet Competent’ in a module after all resubmission attempts, you will be required to re-sit the module. How is this assessment task assessed? For a result of ‘Satisfactory’ in this assessment task, all module assessment criteria (as indicated on page 4) must be completed to a satisfactory standard. Where a critical question is identified, you must receive a mark of 100% for these questions before a ‘satisfactory’ result can be awarded, regardless of the overall mark achieved. At Advanced Diploma level, a ‘satisfactory’ standard, as stipulated by the Australian Qualifications Framework, means that you will demonstrate the application of knowledge and skills: · with depth in areas of specialisation, in contexts subject to change · with initiative and judgment in planning, design, technical or management functions with some direction · to adapt a range of fundamental principles and complex techniques to known and unknown situations · across a broad range of technical or management functions with accountability for personal outputs · personal and team outcomes within broad parameters Assessors also make decisions based on the following considerations: · all parts of this assessment have been completed to a standard that satisfactorily meets the requirements set out in the assessment criteria (as per the module outline). · the assessment evidence provided is the student’s own work, except as appropriately acknowledged by the use of referencing. · the evidence is recent and the student’s knowledge is up-to-date Assessment Instructions: 1. You must answer ALL questions. 1. Please ensure you complete your answers in a blue font (not red or black). 1. The best marks can be earned by giving concise, brief answers that address the questions. 1. You must reference all content used from other sources including course materials, slides, diagrams, etc. Do not directly copy and paste from course materials or any other resources. Refer to the referencing section of the EIT eLibrary on Moodle for referencing guides. 1.
