Training package qualifications and accredited courses have specific requirements regarding the assessment of competency.
Assessment is the process of collecting evidence and making judgments on whether competency has been achieved to confirm that a student can perform to the standard expected in the workplace.
The assessment process is used to determine whether students are either competent or not yet competent against the agreed industry standards. A person who is not yet competent against any standard can undertake further study or training and be assessed again.
The VCAA has determined that selected VCE VET programs have a study score component based on the designated units 3 and 4 sequence of their program.
Scored assessment includes school-assessed coursework and an examination set by the VCAA.
