Post-tensioning operations are carried out in accordance with safety legislation and workplace requirements

  1. > Personal computer hardware and software are operated in accordance with software instructions and manufacturer’s specifications

Integrated Assessment:

Formative assessments conducted during the learning process will consist of written tests, demonstrations and a number of self-assessments. The purpose of formative assessment is to diagnose learner strengths and weaknesses and to determine readiness for summative assessment.

Summative assessment would consist of written tests and accompanying assignments, case studies and practical demonstrations. Summative assessments would only be conducted once the learner has indicated that he/she is ready to undergo summative assessment.

Before qualifying, learners will be expected to demonstrate competence in a practical situation that integrates the assessment of all specific outcomes, for all Unit Standards.

Integrated assessment provides learners with an opportunity to display an ability to integrate practical performance, actions, concepts and theory across Unit Standards to achieve competence in relation to the purpose of this Qualification.

In particular assessors should check that the learner is able to demonstrate the ability to consider a range of options and make decisions about:

The quality of the observed practical performance as well as the theory and underpinning knowledge behind it.
The different methods that can be used by the learner to display thinking and decision making in the demonstration of practical performance.
