Assessment

ANZIIF is committed to providing relevant, high-quality professional education and training that sets the benchmark for the insurance industry. We offer two modes of study:

  • Traditional learning, delivered via seven-week or 12-week modules and offered during set study periods within the year
  • ANZIIF Skills Units, delivered fully online and completed in just five weeks (four weeks of learning and one week of assessment per unit) or seven weeks (six weeks of learning and one week of assessment). Units can be taken as standalone courses or combined to attain a professional qualification. For more information, visit the ANZIIF Skills Units FAQ page.

MODULE ASSESSMENT

For assessment information for students completing a professional qualification via the traditional module mode of study, visit the ANZIIF Module Assessment page.

On 1 January 2016, due to the new Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) training standards, some changes were made to how ANZIIF semester module assessments are done. Visit our FAQs to find out more.

ASSESSMENT STANDARDS

ANZIIF uses a number of measures to ensure the highest assessment standards, including:

  • engaging with employers to uphold the integrity of assessments and to ensure that examinations are conducted in a way that facilitates the desired outcome — a qualified, professional employee
  • randomly drawing questions from a bank of questions so that no two exams are the same
  • setting consistent time constraints so that regardless of where students sit the exam, time allowances for completing the exam are the same
  • setting time allowances that are sufficient to complete the questions while not excessive in order to prevent prohibited reference materials  being used during the examination
  • using technology that enables the identification of any possible breaches in academic conduct.

RE-ENROLMENT

Students who were not successful in completing their assessment have the option to re-enrol in that module or Skills Unit, provided they do so in a study period that commences within six months of their original result release date. Students can re-enrol at a discounted fee (from the full price of that module or unit).

SPECIAL CONSIDERATION

If you are facing or have faced circumstances that have prevented you from completing an assessment, you are able to apply for special consideration. ANZIIF recognises that part-time distance education can sometimes be difficult and is supportive of students in difficult circumstances.

ACADEMIC MISCONDUCT AND PLAGIARISM

Academic misconduct is cheating, plagiarism (presenting someone’s words or ideas as if they are your own) or breaking other ANZIIF academic rules. ANZIIF takes academic misconduct very seriously and may penalise a student found guilty of academic misconduct or plagiarism.

ANZIIF’s Academic Misconduct Policy provides more information on types of offence, the determination process and appropriate penalties.

RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING

ANZIIF’s Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a government-recognised assessment process that allows you to use your previous professional training and experience towards the attainment of a professional qualification.
