Instructions to Learner

Assessment instructions

Overview

Prior to commencing the assessments, your trainer/assessor will explain each assessment task and the terms and conditions relating to the submission of your assessment task. Please consult with your trainer/assessor if you are unsure of any questions. It is important that you understand and adhere to the terms and conditions, and address fully each assessment task. If any assessment task is not fully addressed, then your assessment task will be returned to you for resubmission. Your trainer/assessor will remain available to support you throughout the assessment process.

Written work

Assessment tasks are used to measure your understanding and underpinning skills and knowledge of the overall unit of competency. When undertaking any written assessment tasks, please ensure that you address the following criteria:

  • Address each question including any sub-points
  • Demonstrate that you have researched the topic thoroughly
  • Cover the topic in a logical, structured manner
  • Your assessment tasks are well presented, well referenced and word processed
  • Your assessment tasks include your full legal name on each and every page.

Active participation

It is a condition of enrolment that you actively participate in your studies. Active participation is completing all the assessment tasks on time.

Plagiarism

Plagiarism is taking and using someone else's thoughts, writings or inventions and representing them as your own. Plagiarism is a serious act and may result in a learner’s exclusion from a course. When you have any doubts about including the work of other authors in your assessment, please consult your trainer/assessor. The following list outlines some of the activities for which a learner can be accused of plagiarism:

  • Presenting any work by another individual as one's own unintentionally
  • Handing in assessments markedly similar to or copied from another learner
  • Presenting the work of another individual or group as their own work
  • Handing in assessments without the adequate acknowledgement of sources used, including assessments taken totally or in part from the internet.

If it is identified that you have plagiarised within your assessment, then a meeting will be organised to discuss this with you, and further action may be taken accordingly.

Collusion

Collusion is the presentation by a learner of an assignment as their own that is, in fact, the result in whole or in part of unauthorised collaboration with another person or persons. Collusion involves the cooperation of two or more learners in plagiarism or other forms of academic misconduct and, as such, both parties are subject to disciplinary action. Collusion or copying from other learners is not permitted and will result in a “0” grade and NYC.

Assessments must be typed using document software such as (or similar to) MS Office. Handwritten assessments will not be accepted (unless, prior written confirmation is provided by the trainer/assessor to confirm).

Competency outcome

There are two outcomes of assessments: S = Satisfactory and NS = Not Satisfactory (requires more training and experience).

Once the learner has satisfactorily completed all the tasks for this module the learner will be awarded “Competent” (C) or “Not yet Competent” (NYC) for the relevant unit of competency.

If you are deemed “Not Yet Competent” you will be provided with feedback from your assessor and will be given another chance to resubmit your assessment task(s). If you are still deemed as “Not Yet Competent” you will be required to re-enrol in the unit of competency.

Additional evidence

If we, at our sole discretion, determine that we require additional or alternative information/evidence in order to determine competency, you must provide us with such information/evidence, subject to privacy and confidentiality issues. We retain this right at any time, including after submission of your assessments.

Confidentiality

We will treat anything, including information about your job, workplace, employer, with strict confidence, in accordance with the law. However, you are responsible for ensuring that you do not provide us with anything regarding any third party including your employer, colleagues and others, that they do not consent to the disclosure of. While we may ask you to provide information or details about aspects of your employer and workplace, you are responsible for obtaining necessary consents and ensuring that privacy rights and confidentiality obligations are not breached by you in supplying us with such information.

Assessment appeals process

If you feel that you have been unfairly treated during your assessment, and you are not happy with your assessment and/or the outcome as a result of that treatment, you have the right to lodge an appeal. You must first discuss the issue with your trainer/assessor. If you would like to proceed further with the request after discussions with your trainer/assessor, you need to lodge your appeal to the course coordinator, in writing, outlining the reason(s) for the appeal.

Recognised prior learning

Candidates will be able to have their previous experience or expertise recognised on request.

Special needs

Candidates with special needs should notify their trainer/assessor to request any required adjustments as soon as possible. This will enable the trainer/assessor to address the identified needs immediately.

Assessment requirements

The assessment activities in this workbook assess aspects of all the elements, performance criteria, skills and knowledge and performance requirements of the unit of competency.

To demonstrate competence in this unit you must undertake all activities in this workbook and have them deemed satisfactory by the assessor. If you do not answer some questions or perform certain tasks, and therefore you are deemed to be Not Yet Competent, your trainer/assessor may ask you supplementary questions to determine your competence. Once you have demonstrated the required level of performance, you will be deemed competent in this unit.

Should you still be deemed Not Yet Competent, you will have the opportunity to resubmit your assessments or appeal the result.

As part of the assessment process, all learners must abide by any relevant assessment policies as provided during induction.

If you feel you are not yet ready to be assessed or that this assessment is unfair, please contact your assessor to discuss your options. You have the right to formally appeal any outcome and, if you wish to do so, discuss this with your trainer/assessor.

Summative Assessments

The summative assessments are the major activities designed to assess the learner’s skills, knowledge and performance, as required to show competency in this unit. These activities should be completed after finishing the Learner Guide. These should be completed as stated under the trainer/assessor instructions.

Skills, knowledge and performance may be termed as:

  • Skills – skill requirements, required skills, essential skills, foundation skills
  • Knowledge – knowledge requirements, required knowledge, essential knowledge, knowledge evidence
  • Performance – evidence requirements, critical aspects of assessment, performance evidence.

Section A: Skills Activity

The Skills Activity is designed to address the foundation skills of the unit through a case study or studies, with a series of applicable questions to address the skills criteria.

Section B: Knowledge Activity (Q & A)

The Knowledge Activity is designed to be a questionnaire where the assessor asks the learner a series of questions to confirm their competency for all of the required knowledge in the unit of competency.

Section C: Performance Activity

The Performance Activity is designed to address the performance evidence of the unit through a case study or studies, with a series of applicable questions to address the skills criteria.

If necessary for the activities, you should attach completed written answers, portfolios or any evidence of competency to this workbook.

Section A: Skills Activity

Objective: To provide you with an opportunity to show you have the required skills for this unit.

The Foundation Skills describe those required skills (language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills) that are essential to performance.

Foundation skills essential to performance are explicit in the performance criteria of this unit of competency.

Therefore, there is no skills activity required for this unit, as they have been covered in the previous activities.

Section B: Knowledge Activity (Q & A)

Objective: To provide you with an opportunity to show you have the required knowledge for this unit.

The answers to the following questions will enable you to demonstrate your knowledge of:

  • Basic structure and functions of the body systems and associated components, including:
    • cells, tissues and organs
    • cardiovascular system
    • respiratory system
    • musculo-skeletal system
    • endocrine system
    • digestive system
    • urinary system
    • reproductive system
    • integumentary system
    • lymphatic system
    • nervous system, including sensory systems – eye and ear
    • the special senses – smell, taste, vision, equilibrium and hearing
    • immune system
  • Processes, conditions and resources required by the body to support healthy functioning
    • body regulation including:
  • maintenance of body temperature
  • fluid and electrolyte (including PH) balance
  • elimination of wastes from the body
  • maintenance of blood pressure
    • protection from infection
    • physical activity – active and passive.

Answer each question in as much detail as possible, considering your organisational requirements for each one.

  1. Put together a presentation by PowerPoint, or another appropriate presentation software, (with images) on the basic structure and functions of one of the main 13 systems and its associated components and how they function together. Print this out and submit this as your answer, or if preferred by the assessor, submit this electronically.

For example, if the respiratory system was chosen, the nose/nasal cavity, mouth, pharynx, etc. would all need to be detailed and how they collaborate to maintain a functioning system as a whole.

  1. Which processes, conditions and resources does the body utilise to maintain healthy functioning, and why are these important? Your answer must include description of at least two forms of body regulation.
  2. How does the body protect itself from infection?
  1. What is active and passive physical activity and why are these essential?

Case Studies

Case Study A: the human body and its healthy functioning scenario one

John is fifty years of age; he does not participate in any regular exercise and is classed as being overweight. He drives to his place of work each day and works as an office worker which has a limited requirement for any physical activity; he may need to visit work colleagues and access files and paperwork from the work area.

He has found it increasingly hard to catch his breath and when out walking he gets tired relatively quickly, his goal is to improve his general fitness through starting some form of physical exercise.

John’s want to improve his energy levels and his breathing.

Case Study B: the human body and its healthy functioning scenario two

Maria has a sports injury to her left knee; this has been caused through over-exertion from training and participating in a recent half marathon event. When Maria trains, she finds that after a short period of time, her knee feels uncomfortable and she experiences mild pain around the joint.

Maria want to understand how her knee joint works so she can find exercises which will help improve her ability to run.

Case Study C: the human body and its healthy functioning scenario three

Timothy has been told by his doctor that he has high blood pressure and needs to reduce this to a safer level.

He smokes 10 cigarettes each day and drinks alcohol three times a week; this is usually between two to four beers, but can be more on some occasions. His job is quite stressful and he often works long hours and eats on the go; this also leaves him with limited time to pursue his own interests.

Supplementary Oral Questions (optional) – for assessor

The below table is for you to document any supplementary verbal questions you have asked the learner to determine their competency. For example, if you are unsure of their answer to a question in the Learner Workbook, you may choose to ask them a supplementary question to clarify their understanding of the relevant criteria.
