Programs offered by TAFE Queensland incorporate competency based assessment. The purpose of assessing competency is to confirm that you can perform to the standards expected in the workplace. Assessment is defined as the process of making judgments about whether competency has been achieved. You will be given the option of providing evidence that you meet the requirements of competency through recognition of prior learning (refer Section 7.3) or you can undertake training and assessment against the competency. The teacher will advise prior to the commencement of training how the competency is to be assessed. Assessment will generally be progressive and involve more that one assessment item for each competency. Assessment items may include, but are not limited to, projects, case studies, oral questions, assignments, portfolios, written examinations, role plays, practical demonstrations or observation of activities in the workplace or simulated work environment. An assessment cover sheet must be completed, signed and attached to each assessment item. Students studying externally must send the assessment by the due date to: Wide Bay Institute of TAFE Locked Mail Bag 279 MARYBOROUGH QLD 4650 Extensions must be applied for on Form 001 - Variation to an Assessment Date (available at http://www.widebay.tafe.qld.gov.au/about_us/forms.html or from your teacher).
