Overview of assessment 

Critical aspects for assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit 

Evidence of the ability to:

  • design, create and save a markup language document using a markup language without the automated generation of code.

Context of and specific resources for assessment

  • organisational style guide or policy
  • user requirements
  • text editor
  • range of browsers
  • internet to validate markup

Guidance information for assessment 

Holistic assessment with other units relevant to the industry sector, workplace and job role is recommended, where appropriate.

Assessment processes and techniques must be culturally appropriate, and suitable to the communication skill level, language, literacy and numeracy capacity of the candidate and the work being performed.
