ASSESSMENT OVERVIEW

Students of ICT50220 – Diploma of Information Technology course will be advised of the assessment requirements at the beginning of training of each unit.

 

ICT50220 – Diploma of Information Technology course assessments are the process of collecting evidence and making judgements about whether competency has been achieved to confirm whether an individual can perform to the standards expected in the workplace, as expressed in the relevant endorsed unit of competency.

 

Assessments are carried out in accordance with:

  • Identified industry benchmarks and available best practice relevant for particular assessment.
  • specific industry requirements.
  • specific principles of assessment.
  • rules of evidence.

 

The Assessment tasks given to the students throughout the unit of competency will require the students to manage their workload and schedule assessment tasks accordingly. As this is a competency-based course, assessments continue throughout the course until the participant either achieves competency in their assessment tasks or a further training need is identified and addressed.

 

Formative assessment is provided throughout the course in terms of practice.  This is achieved through using the tasks outlined in the learners’ resources as practice.  Those tasks are separate to the summative assessment process that concludes each unit of competency.

The assessment process for all students in ICT50220 – Diploma of Information Technology course may include theory, projects and practical assessments.

 

Each unit has an individual assessment tool and a mapping document which establishes the details of the assessment methodology including:

  • Outlining the assessment methods;
  • Providing instructions for the Trainer & Assessor;
  • Providing instructions for the students;
  • Being mapped to the unit of competency;
  • Ensuring assessment is summative.

 

All activities and projects are assessed by the assigned Assessor and then returned to the student with feedback. Assessor’s feedback to student allows them to monitor their progress before progressing onto new activities so they may apply lessons learned in their previous assessments.
