Overview of Assessment

Assessment must ensure:

• assessment may take place on the job, off the job or a combination of these. Off the job assessment must be
undertaken in a closely simulated workplace environment
• PDF software 

A range of assessment methods should be used to assess practical skills and knowledge.
The following examples are appropriate for this unit:

• direct questioning combined with review of portfolios of evidence and third party workplace reports of on-the-job
performance by the candidate.

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