You can see your results or attendance progress by logging in to the Learning Management System at any time or you can request a copy of your records by contacting the student administration and the assessor.

Support:

You may seek clarification about the assessment information and the instructions and tasks at any time from the assessor.

Reasonable adjustments and special learning needs:

NAIT Australia works to ensure that students with recognized disadvantages can access and participate in education and training on the same basis as other students. Disadvantages may be based, for example, upon age, cultural background, physical disability, limited or non-current industry experience, language, numeracy or digital literacy issues.

Where pre-training interviews and assessments reveal that a student may require special support or where, after enrolment, it is made apparent that the student requires special support, reasonable adjustments will be made to the learning environment, training delivery, learning resources and/or assessment tasks to accommodate the particular needs of the student. An adjustment is reasonable if it can accommodate the student’s particular needs, while also taking into account factors such as the student’s views, the potential effect of the adjustment on the student and others and the costs and benefits of making the adjustment.

Any adjustments made must:

  • Be discussed, agreed and documented in the assessment record
    • Benefit the student.
    • Maintain the integrity of the competency standards and course requirements as stipulated in the training package.
    • Be reasonable to expect in a workplace.

Reasonable adjustment may consist of:

  1. Providing additional time for students to complete learning and assessment tasks.
  2. Presenting questions orally for students with literacy issues.
  3. Asking questions in a relevant practical context.
  4. Using large print material.
  5. Extending the course duration.
  6. Presenting work instructions in diagrammatic or pictorial form instead of words and sentences.

Complaints and appeals:

If you are dissatisfied with an assessment outcome, you may appeal the assessment decision. In the first instance, you are encouraged to appeal informally by contacting the assessor and discussing the matter with them. If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of such discussion, you may appeal further to either the course coordinator and/or Head of Department. If you are still dissatisfied, you may appeal formally and in writing to have the result reviewed. For more information, refer to the Assessment Policy and the Complaints and Appeals Policy and Procedures.

Assessor intervention:

Assessors will check if you are ready for the assessment and defer the assessment if you are not. Feedback will be given to you at the completion of the assessment.
During role play, the assessor may act as a client or employer, where required, but the assessor will not interfere with the assessment. If the assessment activities might impact on your safety or that of others, the assessor will stop the assessment immediately.

Plagiarism, cheating and assessment dishonesty:

NAIT considers plagiarism and cheating as a serious misdemeanor. Evidence of plagiarism and cheating is treated on a case by case basis and the consequences for students engaging in such practices may include failure of the assessment or unit or exclusion from the course. For more information, refer to NAIT’s Assessment Policy.

Assessor feedback:

 

Assessors will provide feedback on the assessment that you have submitted. This can identify your strengths and weaknesses or be an overall comment on your submission. A copy of the feedback along with your submission will be given to you and you must keep a copy of it throughout the completion of the course.

CEO NAIT: Mark Evans

Project manager

Mar Evans

“Hello, I trust you are doing great, I hope I didn’t keep you waiting for long”

Project manager

“No issues, I understand”

Mark Evans

“Our company has for long been meaning to make a few improvements here and there as you may have been told, we basically needed project management services as we have an extensive project upcoming in the near future, I have discussed with my team here and they have mentioned quite a number of documents required; charter, budget, work breakdown structure you name them. So I would like you to oversee this project”

Project manager

“Thank you sir!, I am honored, I get what you are saying, I am well versed with Agile management, as you have mentioned, those documents are required as part of the project implementation, It would be good if I can get a glimpse of what the project is all about prior to the assembling of the team and the management tasks.”

Mar Evans

“Yeah, sure you will be briefed on the project itself, I have an overview here, we need an IT system, based on our business activities, we need a fairly speed network service as well as a smooth information system. Some sort of backup system will also be great, you will work with those on the ground I think they have full information in detail”

Project manager

“I will take the document with me, I just remembered, I was emailed a document I suppose that is the requirements documents for the project, I will cross-check the document against this and will be able to come up with a consolidate document for me to steer forward the project.”

Mar Evans

“So the project is set start next week on Monday and we have a period of one month at maximum for us to complete it, do you think that will be possible on your end as the project manager?”

Project manager

“Right now I cannot tell in certainty, but tentatively I think a month is enough for us to complete it, there could be hitches or the scope may be wide but essentially we cannot go beyond one and half months”

Mark Evans

“So in other words we should have it completed in one and half months or it depends with the scope of the project?”

Project manager

“Yes, it largely depends on the project scope, but the 45 days I have estimated are tentative, with the preliminary information I have at hand, I think the 45-days period is enough for it to be completed”

Mark Evans

“Okay, 45 days it is, I am headed out for a meeting, you go organize your team and notify me when you start although I won’t be around in the entire period. In will be back in 2-3 weeks, thank you for your time”

Project manager

“The pleasure is all mine, I will sure notify you ASAP”
