Instructions for Students
Please read the following instructions carefully
This assessment must be completed In class At home
The assessment is to be completed according to the instructions given by your assessor.

Should you not answer the questions correctly, you will be given feedback on the results and your gaps in knowledge. You will be given another opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and skills to be deemed competent for this unit of competency. 
If you are not sure about any aspects of this assessment, please ask for clarification from your assessor.
There are two tasks to complete for this unit of competence:
Task 1 – Written responses 
This activity has been designed to assess your knowledge and understanding of managing project cost within projects.
This task consists of questionnaires which reflect the knowledge of project management (PMBOK). The responses should include the following:
Must be relevant to your project as stated in BSBPMG530 Manage Project Scope, unless otherwise stated. Responses should link to the theoretical aspects of project cost management followed by relevant experience / exposure of your nominated project you have recently or are currently working on to progress both your studies and your projects simultaneously. Your response to the questionnaires must relate to the same project topic chosen for BSBPMG530 Manage Project Scope subject unit. 
However, if you have started with this subject topic as an initial attempt of this course, you must negotiate and discuss with your Assessor to consider a project that you recently or are currently working on or a project that you have worked in the past. 
If workplace project exposure does not apply to you, you must negotiate with your assessor to use a scenario/case study examples that you will find on e-learning. However, case study examples are a suitable substitute where workplace examples cannot be provided. Case studies are available on e-learning. Theory answers without reference to your experience will not be assessed as satisfactory
Demonstrate that you can or have applied what you have learnt to your project, regardless of whether you have undertaken all the performance requirements in your workplace.
Task 2 – Portfolio of Evidence
The portfolio of evidence comprises the assessment of the application of your project cost knowledge. You will need to demonstrate your cost management skills applied to a project which is based on the project you have chosen for BSBPMG530 Manage Project Scope subject unit. It should state relevant experience / exposure of your nominated project you recently or are currently working on to progress both your studies and your projects simultaneously.
If you have started with this subject topic as an initial attempt of completing this course, you must negotiate and discuss with your Assessor to consider a project that you recently or are currently working on or a project that you have worked in the past. 
If workplace project exposure does not apply to you, you must negotiate with your assessor to use a scenario/case study examples that you will find on e-learning. However, case study examples are a suitable substitute where workplace examples cannot be provided. Case studies are available on e-learning.
To such a degree you must negotiate with your assessor to use a scenario/case study examples that you will find on e-learning.

a comprehensive, detailed and integrated project management plan
A formal communications plan
A devoted and project-based budget
Formal and planned involvement with a wide range of stakeholders
A documented risk, issues and change-management methodology
