Alpha Beta College offers courses using various modes of delivery (e.g. classroom based, on-line and distance). However, for international students, face-to-face learning and teaching is compulsory for a full-time study load. Course delivery combines theory-based tutorial and practical sessions involving small groups, individual and team activities, and demonstrations using simulated work environment.
Assessment, procedures and criteria will be made clear to all participants. In general, assessment methods include: individual and group performance and presentation, oral and written tests, demonstrations and other classroom-based activities.
Assessment will provide for the recognition of competencies no matter how, where or when they have been acquired. Assessments will also cover the range of skills and knowledge needed to demonstrate competency and will integrate knowledge and skills with practical application.
Assessing student performance will be conducted in accordance with the assessment guidelines and competency standards of the relevant training package. Assessment will also have regard to validity, reliability, fairness and flexibility.
If students are unhappy with a result on any assessment task, they can lodge a formal appeal in accordance with the re-assessment policy, details of which appear in the Student Handbook.
