CHCECE019 – Facilitate compliance in an education and care service

Before you submit this assessment task, you will need to have completed:

  • The Theory Assessment task – Theory tasks are the mostly short answer and scenario
    tasks. It is expected that answers will be provided in full sentences, dot points are to be
    avoided at the diploma level. In Diploma courses using references is suggested, (this
    means giving credit to the original source) and this can be done by footnoting or a
    bibliography.
  • Quizzes – The quizzes are a range of multiple choice questions designed to display
    your understadning in for parts of this unit. You are required to attain a 90% result for
    to be deemed satisfactory.

Competent outcome:

To be deemed competent in the unit the above assessment components must be satisfactorily completed. For each assessment task, you will be issued with a determination of "Satisfactory" or "Not Yet Satisfactory". When all tasks have been completed and assessed as satisfactory, you will be deemed competent. All Students are given three attempts to be marked competent in each assessment.

Not Yet Satisfactory outcome:

If you are issued with an outcome of “Not Yet Satisfactory” for this assessment, your assessor will identify the areas that need further attention and will arrange further training where appropriate to address any skills gaps identified in the assessment process. You will be asked to resubmit these areas that were not satisfactorily completed within a specific timeframe.

All Students are given two opportunities for reassessment to ensure they have been given enough time and instruction to obtain the required skills in all areas of this unit. If you are unable to provide sufficient evidence to prove current competence in this subject area, you will be required to participate in a gap assessment covering the areas where your knowledge
and skills have not met the minimum requirements.

Appeals:

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your assessment decision, you have the right to appeal. For information on your rights to appeal you can ask to refer to your online student
information for procedures to follow.

Cheating and Plagiarism:

Linx Institute encourages a co-operative learning environment. However, all assessment material issued to students is to be completed on an individual basis, and any work which is not your own should be appropriately referenced. Allegations of cheating, plagiarism, collusion or interference with another student's academic work or performance will be referred to the Academic Manager.

If you are found guilty of cheating or plagiarism a "Not Competent" outcome will be awarded, and you may be prohibited from continuing with that unit of study. If the Academic Manager deems the conduct to be of serious nature, the matter will be referred to the Operations Manager of Linx Institute.

All the above courses of action would require you to attend an interview with a trainer and assessor and where appropriate, the Academic Manager. Where inappropriate conduct continues, your enrolment may be terminated.
