Instructions to Learner
Assessment instructions
Overview
Prior to commencing the assessments, your trainer/assessor will explain each assessment task and the terms and conditions relating to the submission of your assessment task. Please consult with your trainer/assessor if you are unsure of any questions. It is important that you understand and adhere to the terms and conditions, and address fully each assessment task. If any assessment task is not fully addressed, then your assessment task will be returned to you for resubmission. Your trainer/assessor will remain available to support you throughout the assessment process.
Written work
Assessment tasks are used to measure your understanding and underpinning skills and knowledge of the overall unit of competency. When undertaking any written assessment tasks, please ensure that you address the following criteria:
? Address each question including any sub-points
? Demonstrate that you have researched the topic thoroughly
? Cover the topic in a logical, structured manner
? Your assessment tasks are well presented, well referenced and word processed ? Your assessment tasks include your full legal name on each and every page.
Active participation
It is a condition of enrolment that you actively participate in your studies. Active participation is completing all the assessment tasks on time.
Plagiarism
Plagiarism is taking and using someone else's thoughts, writings or inventions and representing them as your own. Plagiarism is a serious act and may result in a learner’s exclusion from a course. When you have any doubts about including the work of other authors in your assessment, please consult your trainer/assessor. The following list outlines some of the activities for which a learner can be accused of plagiarism:
? Presenting any work by another individual as one's own unintentionally
? Handing in assessments markedly similar to or copied from another learner
? Presenting the work of another individual or group as their own work
? Handing in assessments without the adequate acknowledgement of sources used, including assessments taken totally or in part from the internet.
If it is identified that you have plagiarised within your assessment, then a meeting will be organised to discuss this with you, and further action may be taken accordingly.
Collusion
Collusion is the presentation by a learner of an assignment as their own that is, in fact, the result in whole or in part of unauthorised collaboration with another person or persons. Collusion involves the cooperation of two or more learners in plagiarism or other forms of academic misconduct and, as such, both parties are subject to disciplinary action. Collusion or copying from other learners is not permitted and will result in a “0” grade and NYC.
Assessments must be typed using document software such as (or similar to) MS Office. Handwritten assessments will not be accepted (unless, prior written confirmation is provided by the trainer/assessor to confirm).
Competency outcome
There are two outcomes of assessments: S = Satisfactory and NS = Not Satisfactory (requires more training and experience).
Once the learner has satisfactorily completed all the tasks for this module the learner will be awarded “Competent” (C) or “Not yet Competent” (NYC) for the relevant unit of competency.
If you are deemed “Not Yet Competent” you will be provided with feedback from your assessor and will be given another chance to resubmit your assessment task(s). If you are still deemed as “Not Yet Competent” you will be required to re-enrol in the unit of competency.
Additional evidence
If we, at our sole discretion, determine that we require additional or alternative information/evidence in order to determine competency, you must provide us with such information/evidence, subject to privacy and confidentiality issues. We retain this right at any time, including after submission of your assessments.
Confidentiality
We will treat anything, including information about your job, workplace, employer, with strict confidence, in accordance with the law. However, you are responsible for ensuring that you do not provide us with anything regarding any third party including your employer, colleagues and others, that they do not consent to the disclosure of. While we may ask you to provide information or details about aspects of your employer and workplace, you are responsible for obtaining necessary consents and ensuring that privacy rights and confidentiality obligations are not breached by you in supplying us with such information.
Assessment appeals process
If you feel that you have been unfairly treated during your assessment, and you are not happy with your assessment and/or the outcome as a result of that treatment, you have the right to lodge an appeal. You must first discuss the issue with your trainer/assessor. If you would like to proceed further with the request after discussions with your trainer/assessor, you need to lodge your appeal to the course coordinator, in writing, outlining the reason(s) for the appeal.
Recognised prior learning
Candidates will be able to have their previous experience or expertise recognised on request.
Special needs
Candidates with special needs should notify their trainer/assessor to request any required adjustments as soon as possible. This will enable the trainer/assessor to address the identified needs immediately.

Assessment requirements
Assessment can either be:
? Direct observation
? Product-based methods e.g. reports, role plays, work samples
? Portfolios – annotated and validated
? Questioning
? Third party evidence.
If submitting third party evidence, the Third-Party Observation/Demonstration document must be completed by the agreed third party.
Third parties can be:
? Supervisors
? Trainers
? Team members
? Clients
? Consumers.
The third party observation must be submitted to your trainer/assessor, as directed.
The third party observation is to be used by the assessor to assist them in determining competency.
The assessment activities in this workbook assess aspects of all the elements, performance criteria, skills and knowledge and performance requirements of the unit of competency.
To demonstrate competence in this unit you must undertake all activities in this workbook and have they deemed satisfactory by the assessor. If you do not answer some questions or perform certain tasks, and therefore you are deemed to be Not Yet Competent, your trainer/assessor may ask you supplementary questions to determine your competence. Once you have demonstrated the required level of performance, you will be deemed competent in this unit.
Should you still be deemed Not Yet Competent, you will have the opportunity to resubmit your assessments or appeal the result.
As part of the assessment process, all learners must abide by any relevant assessment policies as provided during induction.
If you feel you are not yet ready to be assessed or that this assessment is unfair, please contact your assessor to discuss your options. You have the right to formally appeal any outcome and, if you wish to do so, discuss this with your trainer/assessor.
Reasonable Adjustment
As a learner, I have been advised of my rights and responsibilities regarding Reasonable Adjustment. I understand how it relates to measures or actions that can be taken by an education provider, to assist me to succeed in my training program where I have identified myself as having a disability or impairment that could prevent me from fulfilling the requirements of my chosen program.
I have indicated where necessary, on my enrolment form, those disabilities that may require a reasonable adjustment to my training schedule and I have ensured that my trainer is aware of any additional recognised issues that will require changes to the standard delivery of this program of study. Should any of these circumstances change during my study I will notify my trainer as soon as possible and my trainer will list these changes here with my signature.
I certify I have read and accept the above information as part of my responsibilities during my program of study.
Change in circumstance Date Trainer signature Student signature
Assessment Task Coversheet
Students must clearly and accurately complete an Assessment Task Coversheet for all assessment tasks and other types of evidence to be submitted for a unit(s) of competency. Original work will not be returned to students as ASMI is required to hold assessments for six months after completion for audit purposes. Students should retain a copy for their records, ASMI does not accept responsibility for work that goes missing in postage between the student and the organisation. Any students wishing to have their original work back after the six-month period should contact the administration office by email admin@asmitraining.edu.au.
Observation/Demonstration
Throughout this unit, you will be expected to show your competency of the elements through observations or demonstrations. Your trainer/assessor will have a list of demonstrations you must complete or tasks to be observed. The observations and demonstrations will be completed as well as the activities found in this workbook.
An explanation of observations and demonstrations:
Observation is on-the-job
The observation will usually require:
? Performing a work-based skill or task
? Interaction with colleagues and/or customers. Demonstration is off-the-job A demonstration will require:
? Performing a skill or task that is asked of you ? Undertaking a simulation exercise.
Your trainer/assessor will inform you of which one of the above they would like you to do. The observation/demonstration will cover one of the unit’s elements.
The observation/demonstration will take place either in the workplace or the training environment, depending on the task to be undertaken and whether it is an observation or demonstration. Your trainer/assessor will ensure you are provided with the correct equipment and/or materials to complete the task. They will also inform you of how long you have to complete the task.
You should be able to demonstrate the skills, knowledge and performance criteria required for competency in this unit, as seen in the Learner Guide.
Third Party Guide
You should supply details of the third party to the assessor before you commence the activities (see below), unless the assessor has already selected a third party themselves. The assessor can then contact the third party in instances where they require more evidence to determine competency, or they cannot observe certain tasks themselves. The reasons to use a third party may include:
? Assessment is required in the workplace
? Where there are health and safety issues related to observation ? Patient confidentiality and privacy issues are involved.
If you are not employed, or able to complete demonstrative tasks in the workplace, you will need to inform the assessor. They will be able to provide you with a simulated environment in which to complete these tasks.
We would prefer that, wherever possible, these be “live” issues for your industry and require application of the principles that you are learning as part of your training. Where this is not possible, you and your third party should simulate the activity tasks and demonstrations that you believe would be likely to arise in your organisation or job role.
Third party evidence can also be used to provide “everyday evidence” of tasks included in your work role that relate to the unit of competency but are not a part of the formal assessment process.
The third party is not to be used as a co-assessor – the assessor must make the final decision on competency themselves.
Documents relevant to collection of third party evidence are included in the Third-Party section in the Observations/Demonstrations document.
