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.

Grade Results Table

Assessment results will be available on the advertised result release date of the applicable study period. 

Successful students will be posted an official Statement of Attainment two weeks after the study period ends.

Students who were not successful in completing their assessment have unlimited opportunities 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). Refer to the Module Assessments page or Skills Units Assessments page for your relevant re-enrolment form.

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.
