9 Frequently Asked Questions What kinds of assessments are there in TAFE NSW? TAFE NSW uses a range of appropriate assessment methods and tasks to evaluate your competence in a particular unit of competence/ qualification. All assessment tasks are designed in accordance to the relevant training package specifications of a qualification/unit of competence and may include assignments, practical assessments, presentations, project work, oral/written tests or other methods deemed appropriate to assess your competence in carrying out tasks to a required standard. Refer to the Student Assessment Guide Unit of Competency for accurate information related to the applicable assessment activities. There is also skills recognition which means that you will not have to repeat units you have already achieved through formal or informal learning. To have your skills recognised you need to get a formal assessment. You should discuss this with your teacher to find out what evidence you need to show in order to gain recognition. Are there penalties if I cheat? Yes, there are. Whatever the form of assessment, it is essential that the work you are assessed on is your own. All students should be aware that penalties will be imposed for students found to be cheating in an assessment. Cheating can take different forms. For example, it may be copying or using the work, writing, drawings or photographs created by other people and passing them off as your own. You must make it clear if you are quoting or using other people s work. Of course, it is often helpful to discuss your work and ideas with other people. Where you are working in a team with other students on a joint assessment task, your teacher will explain how your own contribution will be assessed. Will I be assessed in the workplace? In some qualifications and units of competency, you may be assessed in the workplace, or your workplace supervisor may be asked to provide a report on your workplace activities. Refer to the Student Assessment Guide Units of Competency for further details. Will I be assessed on-line If all or part of your qualification is provided online; all or part of your assessment may occur online. Refer to the Student Assessment Guide for further details related to your qualification/ unit of competence. What happens if I miss a formal assessment activity or an examination, or if I m late with an assessment task? You should contact your teacher to discuss this as soon as possible, giving reasons for your lateness or absence. Where possible, you should provide evidence to support your reason(s), for example a medical certificate. In some cases, your teacher may accept a late assignment or allow you to sit for a test at a later date. How much notice will I receive about assessment tasks? There will be a range of assessment tasks that you will undertake during your study. Assessment information will be provided to you in the Student Assessment Guide Unit 7

10 STUDENT GUIDE TO ASSESSMENT of Competency on commencement of each unit. Your teacher will give you adequate notice of the assessment event, depending on the duration of unit. If you are unsure always ask your teacher. About Assessment Will my results be reviewed before I receive them? Yes. Your results will be checked before you receive your Transcript of Academic Record. Can I appeal my results? Yes, in the following cases: to request a review of a result to request special consideration to lodge a formal complaint regarding some aspect of the assessment process. You will have three weeks from the date you receive your results in which to make an appeal and request a review. You will receive a response within ten working days after receipt of the request. If you would like to request a review or if you have any concerns about your results, contact your teacher or head teacher. If they are unavailable, contact the student records officer, within three weeks of receiving your results. Contact your head teacher for the assessment appeals procedure at your college/campus. How will my results be reported? Your Transcript of Academic Record lists all of your results in your study to date. On your Transcript of Academic Record both units of competency and modules are referred to as Units. Most units of competency are ungraded and are reported as Competent or Not Yet Competent. On successfully completing these you will receive a result of Competent. Some units of competency are graded. When you have successfully finished these you will receive a result of Competent, Competent with credit, or Competent with distinction. However, you may also get a result of pass or fail if your performance is not adequate for the unit being assessed. TAFE NSW mainly delivers Training Package qualifications. These Training Packages are developed by industry and state the skills and knowledge the industry expects. These skills and knowledge are set out in the form of units of competency. If you enrolled in a qualification and have achieved one or more units of competency from that qualification but are unable to finish the qualification, you will receive a Transcript of Academic Record showing the units you have completed. You will also receive a statement of attainment for those units you have successfully completed. What happens if I want to repeat a unit of competency? If you want to repeat a unit of competency you should discuss this with your head teacher as soon as possible. Your enrolment fee only covers the first attempt on the unit of competency. A separate fee will be charged for any additional attempt to achieve the unit of competency. 8 TAFE WESTERN SYDNEY LEARNER GUIDE

In most units of competency you will be able to, however your dictionary must not contain any notes or additional information. There will be some examinations where bilingual dictionaries will not be permitted under any circumstances. Learners will be informed through the relevant Student Assessment Guides if they will not be permitted to take a dictionary into the examination.
