Assessment Coversheet Unit/s AssessedFNSACC416 Set up and operate a computerised accounting systemAssessment NameFNSACC416 Background Knowledge and Reflections Type of Assessment This summative assessment will enable your assessor to make a judgement of competency based on the submission of your completed assessments against the requirements of the unit/s of competency in this module. Benchmark The Assessment Benchmark developed for each unit of competency is the evidence criteria used to judge the quality of performance (i.e. the assessment decision-making rules). Assessors use these benchmarks to make judgements on whether competency has been achieved and to determine if you have performed to the standard expected to meet the unit requirements. Reasonable Adjustment Where appropriate Monarch Institute will allow flexibility in the way in which each unit is assessed based on the needs of an individual. Assessment Coding Assessment of this course is based on competency-based principles. S = Satisfactory NS = Not Satisfactory If you fail to perform satisfactorily for the assessment in the prescribed way you may be assessed as ‘Not Satisfactory’. You are required to be assessed as ‘Satisfactory’ in all assessments for each unit of competency. Re-assessment Your assessment can be submitted after you have reviewed the learning materials and practiced enough to feel confident in your resubmission. You have two weeks from your last submission feedback to resubmit. You are re-assessed in only the areas where your assessor has indicated you were initially assessed as NS. It is at the assessor’s discretion to re-assess the entire assessment should an overall understanding not be demonstrated.  When you are re-assessed as ‘satisfactory’ after re-submission you will achieve competency for this assessment. Declaration of Understanding and Authenticity I acknowledge the assessment process has been explained and agree that I am ready to undertake assessment. I am aware of where to find the assessor’s feedback for the assessment. I am aware of the appeals process, should the need arise. I also understand I must be assessed as ‘satisfactory’ in all parts of the assessment/s to gain an overall competent result for the unit/s of competency. If I am found to be NS after a second attempt, it is at the assessor ‘s discretion whether I may be permitted one final attempt. I am aware that a ‘not competent’ final outcome means I may incur fees for re-enrolment in the unit/s. I certify that the attached material is my original work.

The video recording is submitted together with the assignment. You will be assessed on: Student explains legislative requirements for storing information securelyStudent explains the new policy and proceduresStudent answers a question from the other participantStudent demonstrates active listeningStudent is visible and all participants are audible throughout the video. Instructions You will need a partner for this exercise, to read/play Mary’s part. Give them the role play script (see below) titled ‘Information security and storage system’. Record your meeting with Mary. Upload the meeting video when you upload this assignment document. Please name your roleplay file with your surname followed by mod 3.1 For example, Smith Mod3.1 General instructions: Students must perform with at least 1 other person. Using just 1 other person to play multiple roles is completely OK. Alternatively, you can use as many other persons as there are roles. The other person(s) can play multiple roles except for the role required to be played by the student. There is no requirement for the other person(s) to be visible in the video, so if your partner(s) would prefer not to be visible, that’s OK. The student must be visible throughout the video. All persons must be audible throughout the recording. Using a camera phone is often a quick and easy way to record the video. For the role play, we suggest the following: Have a quiet, private space where you can effectively record the video. This could be your spare room at home, an office at your workplace, or even a study room at your local library. Be appropriately dressed. When you’re conducting the role play, don’t forget about: Using appropriate body language and gestures, including eye contact Speaking professionally, and at the appropriate pace Using plain English Listening without interrupting Respond appropriately to what is said. Role Play Script – Information security and storage system Instructions: The parts are indicated with names in brackets, like this: [YOU] [MARY]When something is written in bold, it’s just a guide – not a line you have to read word-for-word. There’s often no script for what the director/owner says; just guidelines. That’s part of the challenge! Don’t read these lines out. Instead, answer in a way that fulfils the guidelines. For example, if the guideline for you were: [YOU]: Name and describe a fruit. Say something good and something bad about the fruit. …you might say “Apples. They’re red, juicy, and crunchy. They’re high in fibre, but you can’t eat the core.” Normal speech is written as follows. Read these parts out.[MARY]: Let’s get this meeting started. Instructions for actions or body language are written in italics as follows. Don’t read these parts out.[FRED]: Look angry and raise your hand. – – – – – – – Script: [YOU]: Greet Mary. Advise her that you would like to bring her up to speed on the new information security policy and procedures. [MARY]: “No problem.
