The course contains 10 lessons. The primary knowledge within the first 6 lessons is assessed at the end of the section by means of an online quiz that covers all primary learning criteria. The pass mark for each individual quiz is 70%. Each end of section quiz also contributes an 8% portion towards the final course grade, therefore the 6 quizzes deliver a maximum of 48% towards the final grade.
The remaining 52% of the overall grade is obtained by means of a final business case study worksheet. The students are provided with a case study scenario, which includes business information, a demographics summary, and strategy planning forms for completion. Following the completion of these documents and the successful creation of an effective strategy by the student, the completed worksheet is submitted online to be assessed in person by an assessor. This final case study worksheet also has a 70% pass mark.
The final course grade will be an aggregate grade that combines the 6 short lesson quizzes and the final case study exam. The total aggregate score required to pass the course is also 70%.
