Introduction : Question CHCPOL003 – Research And Apply Evidence To Practice

Type of Assessment

This summative assessment will enable your Assessor to make a judgement of competency based on the submission of your completed assignments against the requirements of this unit of competency.

Assessor Instructions

The Assessment Benchmark developed for each unit of competency is the evidence criteria used to judge the quality of performance (i.e. the assessment decision-making rules). Assessors must use these benchmarks to make a judgement on whether competency has been achieved and to determine if the participant has performed to the standard expected to meet the unit requirement and learning outcomes. Competency results for each unit are recorded in the Record of Assessment Form.

 Assessment Coding

Assessment of this program of study is based on competency-based principles.

S              =   Satisfactory

NS           =   Not Satisfactory

Students who fail to perform satisfactorily for the assessment in the prescribed date may be assessed as ‘not satisfactory’.  You are required to be assessed as ‘Satisfactory’ on completion of Assessments assigned by your assessor for this unit of competency.


Any re-assessment is conducted as soon as practicable after you have been informed of the requirement to be re-assessed and have been given the opportunity to be re-trained and assimilate the training. You are re-assessed in only the areas assessed NS. It is at the assessor/s discretion to re-assess the entire assessment should it be demonstrated an overall understanding of this unit has not been achieved. Students that are assessed ‘satisfactory’ after re-assessment of areas deemed NS will achieve competency for this assignment.

I acknowledge the assessment process has been explained and agree to undertake the assessment. I am aware of Careers Australia’s appeals process, should the need arise. I also understand that I must be assessed as ‘satisfactory’ in all parts of the assessment to gain a competent result for this unit of competency. I declare that the work contained in this assessment is my own, except where acknowledgment of sources is made. I understand that a person found responsible for academic misconduct will be subject to disciplinary action (refer to student handbook).
