Final Examination and Course Marking Scheme
The following marking scheme is used to assess your knowledge of the course content.
A weekly quiz was provided for Modules One to Eight. The quiz for Module nine is not included because it would be done during Module Ten when the final examination is presented. Each weekly quiz was worth 25 marks for a total “Term Mark” out of 25 x 8 = 200 marks.
Participants who missed one or more of the weekly quizzes because of absences may opt to write the quiz before they write the Laser Exam. If they do not exercise this option the mark for the missed quizzes will be recorded as “O”.
The Final Examination includes a variety of items including multiple choice questions, case studies and definitions. The Final Examination is also worth 200 marks for the final examination divided by 4 for a final mark out of 100.
Grades for the course are given as follows:
86 – 100 “A”
76 — 85 “B”
66 — 75 “C”
56 — 65 “D”
0 — 55 “F”
It should be noted that “D”: and “F” represent a “Failure”. Any participants receiving “D” or “F” will not receive a certificate.

A PERSONAL PLAN
Our personal development planning process is a way of collecting and assessing information that may be useful in improving our effectiveness. It is a way of fashioning our self awareness into an actual step-by-step plan for self improvement.
The final test and technologist’s assessment are both methods of generating information about yourself that can be converted into a plan for change. However, other sources of information such as feedback from clients and peers and your own personal reflections can be helpful. Convert this information into a plan of action for achieving the results you want…enhanced skills, better performance, better self image or more professional service for your clients.
The following planning process is a helpful way to get where you want to go. Consider each step. Take your time. Remember that change only occurs if you truly want it to occur.
A Planning Process for Change
1. Gather data on strengths and areas for growth and change.
2. Reflect on how you can use presently identified strengths more effectively.
3. Reflect on your personal areas for growth and change and consider some of the current costs to you for not developing your strengths in these areas.
4. Select the key growth areas that will provide you with the greatest “payoffs” when developed.
5. Review some of the possible resources available for these growth areas.
They might include:
6. Identify what additional information you require regarding resources and
options and possible sources of the required data.
7. Pick one promising skill development area from above and act on it
(reserving the others for later).
8. Begin by deciding how you might start and what your specific action plan
will be (including time lines).
9. Consider some of the roadblocks and obstacles that may keep you from
following through on your plan:
10. Plan to overcome these roadblocks and obstacles using your own
personal resources, intelligence and creativity to ensure that your plan
will be successful.
11. Initiate the plan and hold yourself accountable for it. Decide how you will assess your progress and know when you have succeeded.
It is often helpful to discuss your plan with someone else or with a group of people who are preparing similar plans. This enables you to draw on their interest and ideas, ask for constructive criticism and share a sense of commitment to change. The group support can be very helpful in the encouragement and challenge we all need.
