Assessment Outcomes
If you have not satisfactorily completed either a Theoretical or Practical Assessment the instructor may request that you undertake the complete exercise again, or ask you to repeat a portion of the exercise.
Theory assessments where a student has not answered correctly the Instructor may ask the question verbally or provide an alternate question covering the same aspect of evidence. Both the Question Asked and Answer Provided MUST be documented on this Student Assessment Pack next to the question being reassessed.
UNLESS STATED: ALL QUESTIONS MUST BE UNDERTAKEN AND CORRECT FOR COMPETENCY TO BE AWARDED.
Practical Assessments are limited to 2 additional reattempts, where a 2nd reattempt is required it cannot take place on the same day as the original and 1st additional reattempt. If a student does not show satisfactory outcome to a practical assessment or a proportion of a practical assessment after the completion of a 2nd reattempt the student will be graded as Not Yet Competent. The student will not be awarded the unit of competency or where the unit forms part of a qualification, the qualification will not be awarded. The scheduling of the 2nd reattempt will be at a time of agreement between MILCOM Institute and the student.
The 2nd reattempt cannot be on the same day as the initial and 1st reattempt.
Completion of Assessment
The student must complete the learner declaration on the last page to validate this assessment.
Outstanding Work
If a student has not submitted all required work for assessment before the end of the subject the instructor will nominate a ‘due date’ for the work. If no due date is provided by the Instructor, then a standard 21 calendar days is implied. If a student fails to submit outstanding work by the due date the unit may be graded as Not Yet Competent. Statements of Attainment, and where these units, form/are part of a qualification, then the qualification cannot be issued, where units are marked as ‘Not Yet Competent’.
