FAQ – How are the assessments graded?

After completing an assessment, the process is to submit it to be marked by one of the trainers assigned to you. A trainer will grade the assessment and make notes as he/she progresses.

If the assessment meets the criteria and the trainer is satisfied with the answers provided by the student, then the assessment is marked as ‘complete’ and the student deemed as competent. From time to time, a student may be required to re-submit parts of the assessment where the initial answer was not quite correct. When this occurs, the initial assessment paper (or individual questions) will be returned to the student, where a revised answer is then re-submitted for marking. During this process, the trainer will work with the student to guide and assist them better understand the question and develop a better understanding of what is required.

Our goal at the College is to help and assist every student to get through each unit, assessment and course by providing the best possible environment to do so…no matter how long it takes – we are there to mentor and assist.
