4. ASSESSMENT CONDUCT & LEARNER MALPRACTICE
4.1 The assessments are a test at which learners demonstrate their individual knowledge and skills of the subject they are studying. This is of particular importance where courses are of a professional compliance nature. If learners – intentionally or unintentionally – act in such a way as to improve their assessment conditions compared to what was intended, they will be considered to be cheating to obtain an inaccurate assessment result.
4.2 In the event of learners receiving direct help from someone else to obtain an undue advantage during an assessment, this also constitutes cheating.
4.3 We have algorithms that can detect inconsistencies in normal patterns; including but not limited to: analysis of time spent on individual modules, analysis of assessment scores relative to time spent with the materials, understanding of instructions and advisements relative to assessment scores, and name changing of accounts to obtain certification by fraudulent means.
4.4 In the event of a learner triggering a notification of potential cheating, Pastiche Training, its affiliates and assessors reserve the right to conduct an enquiry to validate the knowledge of the learner before issuing any certifications. The learner will at this time have the opportunity to respond to the enquiry.
4.5 If the suspicion of cheating is found to be justified, any certifications received pertaining to the breach will be cancelled and the learner will be disqualified from any further enrolment in education provided by Pastiche Training and its affiliates. In the case of compliance and regulatory certifications, the relevant authority will be notified of the withdrawal of the certification.
4.6 In the event of an investigation of cheating being upheld, the learner waives their right to a refund of course fees already paid.
5. LEARNER PERFORMANCE
If training is purchased on behalf of or provided to a learner for either personal development or business compliance purposes, the learner agrees to allow Pastiche Training and its content provider partners share course progress and conduct information with the learner’s sponsor if requested.
This information will be limited to attendance, progress, grade scores and whether the learner performs within the time span allocated for the activity.
6. COMPETENCE/COGNITION POLICY
6.1 Individuals enrolled in courses provided by Pastiche Training should be proficient in spoken and written English, comprehension and expression, with particular emphasis on reading ability.
