Assessment Task 2 – Demonstration / Observation
The assessment task is due on the date specifed in your timetable which is the
last date of the unit. Any variations to this arrangement must be approved in
writing by your assessor.
This assessment is to be completed in the classroom / workshop / simulation
setting at Harward International College. The required submission should be
done by completing the work within the scheduled period for unit in accordance
with instructions given below.
The task has assessment activities, designed to assess your skills, knowledge
and performance, as required to show competency in this unit. You should
complete these as stated below and as instructed by your trainer / assessor.
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 be a series of demonstrative tasks that should
be assessed by observation. It will demonstrate all of the skills required for this
unit of competency – your assessor will provide further instructions to you, if
necessary.
Section B: Knowledge Activity (Q & A)
The Knowledge Activity, in addition to task 1, is designed to be a verbal
questionnaire where the assessor asks you a series of questions to confrm your
competency for all of the required knowledge in the unit of competency.
Section C: Performance Activity
The Performance Activity is designed to be a practical activity performed either in
the workplace or a simulated environment. You should demonstrate the required
practical tasks for the unit of competency and be observed by the assessor.
If necessary, for the activities, you should attach completed written
