About the Final Activity Book

Welcome to the Final Activity Book for the Diploma of Project Management.

This Final Activity Book has been provided for you to complete the final activities of this stream that will determine your competency.  Upon completion of this Final Activity Book, it must be submitted to your assessor for an assessment.  Therefore, you should take the time to provide reasonably comprehensive and considered answers to the exercises.  While we do not expect that all the pages provided will necessarily be filled, you are expected to provide more than two or three sentences for each of the tasks.  You must demonstrate a level of understanding that meets the expectations of an AQF qualification.

If you find that you require more space than has been provided, please attach extra pages to the relevant section. If you find it necessary to attach additional documentation, please label any such additional documentation clearly so that your assessor understands the meaning of the documents supplied and can easily return them to you.

Upon satisfactory completion of this stream, based on the assessment of this Final Activity Book, you may be eligible to receive a Statement of Attainment for the individual Units of Competency that this stream covers.  You may be eligible to receive the Diploma qualification if you satisfactorily complete all stream associated with the qualification. 

To be assessed as ‘competent’, you must complete the Final Activity Book individually and be assessed as satisfactorily meeting all requirements of the Units of Competency associated with this stream. You may use the input from any group activities however the written responses must be your own work. 

Electronic copies of the Final Activity Book are available if you wish to type up your answers. 

Holistic Assessment Approach

You will be assessed holistically for this unit or qualification.  For group work, you are required to actively and equally participate in group discussions.  It is not appropriate to simply copy the work from another member of your group.  You must again demonstrate that you have personally engaged with the material.

We also consider that sometimes participants provide significantly more detail than required in one written question and then provide a lower level of information in subsequent questions.  All this information contributes to an assessment of competent.

If your facilitator has concerns about any aspect of the holistic assessment, you may be asked to work individually on assessment tasks so that we can be certain about the level of competence that you display.  You may also be asked interview questions to confirm your level of competence.

What are my rights and obligations in the final activity process?

PLA Assessment Guidelines, including your rights and obligations in the process, are available from our office. Please contact 1300-000-752 to arrange for a printed or digital copy.
