For Melbourne campuses

Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce and extend knowledge and skill competence within set and controlled parameters in accordance with each unit’s learning outcomes and performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines.

  • apply a repertoire of strategies to interpret and critically evaluate structurally complex texts;
  • assess relevance of texts to own purposes and needs;
  • assess the validity and credibility of paper and web based texts, integrate complex concepts across different texts;
  • technology skills to access and navigate web based digital text to locate and assess highly complex texts, and;
  • planning and organising skills to gather, select and synthesise information in texts for own specific purposes/needs by defining and reviewing own information requirements both before and during research.
