Students enrolling agree to:
- Make every possible effort to meet course module due dates.
- Make regular progress and complete the qualification within the course time frame and to the Student Participation Standards.
- Participate in any workplace training provided by your employer or the College.
- Attend any training or progress meetings with the College.
- Notify your employer and the College if you are having any difficulties completing the tasks or workbooks.
- Notify the College if you leave your employer during the term of a traineeship.
Students To Submit Their Own Original Work
All work must be your own work.
This means you are agreeing that you have not:
- Copied (in whole or in part) material or responses from another student
- Used any Artificial Intelligence (AI) software to generate an answer that does not come solely from your own knowledge or skills
- Used a paid assessment writing service
- Allowed someone else to complete your assessment activities.
Please be aware we also have a range of checks to ensure you are the one doing your assessments.
Our systems and procedures will allow us to:
- Compare the style of answers and writing you use
- Identify the location and device you are working from
- Use technology to identify copying and AI use
For Skills Checks you will be asked to identify yourself before the activity. Keep your photo ID handy in case we ask you to show it to us in video conference assessments.
In all Colleges and Universities, submitting work that is not yours is regarded as a serious offence that can result in your disqualification from completing the course.
As a minimum you and any others involved will be required to re-do a new assessment task.
Where enrolled through your employer, your employer will also be notified of the breach verbally and by a formal letter.
If you work with others in study groups, ensure that your submissions are your own work, reflect your own opinions and are written in your own words.
Copy and Paste from the Internet or Workbook
Answers obtained directly from the internet or study workbooks (unless this is specifically required in the assessment activity) will be failed and are a breach of Academic Conduct.
Quiz completion by guessing randomly is a breach of academic policy. The quiz will be locked after 2 attempts and where the fail result is in the view of the College due to random guesses, an alternative assessment activity will be allocated.
Quality Assurance Policy
ASQA Standards for RTOs (2015), as well as various State-level compliance factors, require all RTOs to adhere to the Rules of Evidence.
Specific information on these Rules can be found here:
Essentially, the Rules of Evidence requires RTOs to ensure for elements:
The assessor must be assured that the student has the skills, knowledge, and attributes as described in the unit of competency and associated assessment requirement.
The assessment must be assured that the quality, quantity, and relevance of the assessment evidence enable a judgement to be made of a student’s competency.
The assessor must be assured that the evidence presented for assessment is the student’s own work.
The assessor must be assured that the assessment evidence demonstrates current competency. This requires the assessment evidence to be from the present or the very recent past.
Implementing the ACCM QA Program
As part of ACCM’s ongoing quality assurance program aligned with the Rules of Evidence, a learner’s recent submission(s) may be reviewed by another assessor or selected for further assessment.
The purpose of a further assessment review is to ensure completion of our assessment materials has achieved the required level of demonstrable competence in the unit/s undertaken.
This QA verification will be achieved through a 20-30 minute Competency Conversation, where one of our assessors will conduct a verbal discussion with the learner regarding key points, questions or elements of their assessment submission.
The assessor will verify that the learner is not logged onto their Webclass account for the duration of the conversation, to ensure the depth of the learner’s competency.
Topics will be drawn from the assessment questions previously completed by the learner, relating to the Units of Competency addressed in the selected Subject.
The results of this Competency Conversation will provide ACCM with additional validity, authenticity, sufficiency and currency of the learner’s skills and knowledge.
Competency Conversation results may also identify areas where additional learning and/or further assessment is required. At that point, the learner will be given the opportunity to conduct further learning opportunities and re-attempt identified assessment activities.
