When you study with Australian Online Courses, you will be assessed using a competency-based training method.
Competency-based training focuses on the achievement of skills and knowledge against set criteria to ensure your competency is industry relevant. You will not be benchmarked against other students.
If you do not achieve a competency result on your first attempt, you have two more attempts to pass your assessment. So, you have three attempts in total to obtain a competency result.
In this way, you can complete your course in your own time and at your own pace with the assistance of unlimited tutor support.
In this course, you will be assessed via multiple-choice questions to determine your mastery of details and specific knowledge gained during your studies to achieve a ‘competent’ or ‘not yet competent’ result.
Benefits of Multiple-Choice Assessments
Appropriate for assessing students’ mastery of details and specific knowledge.
Can be used to assess both simple knowledge and complex concepts.
Questions can be answered quickly to accurately assess a students’ mastery of many topics relatively quickly.
Assessment can be quickly and reliably scored to achieve a ‘competent’ or ‘not yet competent’ result.
As the answers are visible, multiple-choice questions offer the opportunity for the continuation of the learning process, offering educational value.
I have been in an Admin role as Secretary and Management Secretary for the past 8 years and this course has now made me gain more knowledge and confidence to move up in my career path as an Executive Assistant/ Secretary. This course was really useful. Thanks
