TAEASS502 challenges

Unit TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools is typically the most expensive unit to service within the TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment due to the higher average student assessment resubmission rate and associated assessment expense:

Resubmission rates and relative costs*

TAEASS502 costs

* Percentage of all assessment submissions requiring a resubmission. TAE40116 result exlcludes TAEASS502 and includes elective BSBCMM401. Based on 2019 sample of 1,015 TAE40116 graduates.

Two or three extra TAEASS502 assessment resubmissions per student may well require one to two hours to assess, with an approximate assessment cost of $50 to $100. This means that your TAEASS502 resubmissions alone represent a total expense of $50,000 to $100,000 for every 1,000 TAE4 students!

However, although TAEASS502 is a complex unit, our research showed that over 75% of student resubmissions resulted from only three relatively simple issues:

 Students incorrectly transfer data between the unit, assessment plan and assessment instruments
 Students select inappropriate assessment methods / instruments, and
Students are unable to transform the assessment tasks into suitable student instructions or assessment scenarios.
