Skill and knowledge assessments are an essential step in progressing through your course. You may be assessed in a number of ways while you are studying at IXCEL.
An educator will directly observe your performance of activities in a real or simulated workplace, role play or exercise, or a demonstration of practical skills.
Written assessments can take a number of forms including case studies, assignments, projects, workbooks, presentations, reports, reflective tasks, self evaluation, and research projects. Your educator will indicate what kind of written assessment you are expected to submit for each unit.
Questioning could take the form of written question and answers, such as examinations, tests or online quizzes. It could also be spoken questions and answers.
A portfolio is a collection of evidence of your skills. This could include collections of samples of your work, observation checklists, third-party reports, products with supporting documentation, historical evidence, training records, and journals, logbooks or work diaries.
Work samples are products or items that you produce during your studies or project work.
Third-party feedback is information we gather from the people training or supervising you throughout your studies.
