Remember, most of your assignments will need documents in addition to the assessment kit to be marked competent.

How do I check my results have been marked?

You can see your grade on the Your work page. Remember, with competency based training you need to demonstrate that you are competent in all areas. This means that if you have not gotten 100% you will need to fix the answers that are not yet competent and resubmit. Your teacher should send you a message in classrooms notifying you of results and any corrective action required but you can always go and check for yourself.

Should I keep a copy of my assessments ?

You should always keep a copy of the assessments that you turn in. You can do this on your computer or your phone.

My assessment asks for an Observation. What is this ?

Some assessment tasks require you to demonstrate in person a task. This could be a presentation or a practical demonstration of a workplace task. If your assessment requires an observation you will also need to submit a completed observation checklist signed by the supervisor, trainer or observer. It is your responsibility to get this from your trainer and attach WITH your assessment when you hand in your work. You can attach the document or you can take a photo of the completed observation and attach this.
