Training and Assessment

Your training will consist of theory and practical classes.

Since individuals learn in different ways, teaching is organised in variety of ways:

  • Training seminars
  • Guided Discussions
  • Directed Readings
  • Audio/Visual Multimedia
  • Information Technology based tutorials
  • Case Studies
  • Individual and Group Work
  • Worksheets/ Surveys
  • Role Playing
  • Report back sessions and
  • Inviting guest speaker/s

The specific teaching method used will depend on the nature of subject being studied.

Most of the courses also incorporate the use of videotapes and other audiovisual equipments and computer laboratories. Overhead projectors and handouts allied to a number of subjects are employed to facilitate learning by the students.

Assessment for each unit of competence includes a range of approaches to allow students a number of different ways to demonstrate competence. Assessment will include practical demonstration of competence, written tests, assignments, case study reports, participation in role plays and classroom activities. Practical work takes place in both a simulated environment and within a commercial environment (where appropriate) for all courses. Students must demonstrate that they are ‘job ready’ in order to complete their program.

Where an overseas student is required to take extra units to complete a course of study at the end of their scheduled program, and the remaining units do not constitute a full-time load, the student may complete the units with a less than full-time load. This applies to overseas students who are required to repeat units of study, however, Australian Industrial Systems Institute will not allow them to repeat any unit more than once.

Plagiarism

Plagiarism is when you pretend that you have written or created a piece of work that someone else originated. It is effectively cheating and it is dishonest. Plagiarism occurs when students fail to acknowledge that ideas have been borrowed. Specifically, it occurs when:

  • phrases and passages are used verbatim without quotation marks and without a reference to the author or a web page
  • an author’s work is paraphrased and presented without a reference
  • other students’ work is copied or partly copied
  • other people’s designs, codes and images are presented as the student’s own work
  • work for assessment are written in conjunction with other students (without prior permission of the relevant Trainer/Assessor).

Submitted assessments must be the students own work. Any reference to another persons work must include correct citations, bibliography and quotation marks for direct quotes.
