Useful Information to Support Your Learning and Assessment

Useful Information to Support Your Learning and Assessment
Reasonable Adjustment

If you have a disability, you may access reasonable adjustment to enable you to participate in training and assessment on the same basis as other students. You can learn more about this through the Learners with a disability policy and procedure on the Box Hill Institute website http://www.boxhill.edu.au/for-students/student-support  or by calling Student Life on 9286 9891, by emailing the Disability liaison service on dls@boxhill.edu.au  or by calling into the Student Life office at Elgar Campus in E3.G56, just near the cafeteria.

You can contact Access and Disability Support at CAE on 889 1612 or email dls@cae.edu.au

Counselling Services

You may find it useful to talk with one of our highly qualified and experienced student counsellors if you wish to study more effectively, improve your work-life management or feel stressed or are pre-occupied by a personal issue.  Please phone on 9652 0611 if you are studying at CAE or 9286 9891 if you are studying at Box Hill to arrange for an appointment

Attendance

The learning activities scheduled during class time will assist you in gaining the skills and knowledge necessary to complete the assessments.  For this reason, it is recommended that you attend as many classes as possible.

Assessment Extensions

If you have a valid reason, you may apply for an extension for an assessment.  This must be done in writing (on the assessment cover sheet or via email / StudentWeb to your teacher) prior to the assessment due date.

Special Consideration

Where a student anticipates that a result will be impacted by special circumstances such as ill health or bereavement, application can be made for special consideration. Forms can be accessed from the Student Life office at Elgar Campus in E3.G56 or downloaded at: http://www.boxhill.edu.au/for-students/student-information/forms-and-downloads

VCE courses: Supplementary exam procedures apply. Please see your VCE Teacher or VCE Coordinator for further discussion.

Re-Assessment

If you do not demonstrate competency in one of your assessment activities, you are entitled to a second attempt.  Your teacher will give you feedback on areas that need additional work.  Note that:

  • it is your responsibility to negotiate the appropriate dates/times for re-assessment with your teacher
  • if you do not submit an assessment on its due date, or if you do not attend class on the date an assessment is scheduled without a valid reason, this will be counted as an assessment attempt.

Assessment Review

If you believe that you have been assessed unfairly, you have the right to request an informal assessment review.  When your assessment cover sheet is returned to you, you can request an informal review by filling in the section below and returning it to your assessor or the Manager of your area.  If you are not satisfied with the outcome, you can apply for a formal review of assessment on the application form located on the Box Hill Institute Website.
