Overview of Assessment
Students must demonstrate an understanding of all elements of a particular competency to be deemed competent. Assessment methods have been designed to measure achievement of each competency in a flexible manner over a range of assessment tasks.
Assessment will incorporate a variety of methods including assignments, journals, presentation and written or test. Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met.
Assessment may incorporate a variety of methods including in-class exercises, problem-solving exercises, assignments, group or individual projects, presentations and written or practical tests, as well as homework activities.
Other activities may be workplace-based or simulate work practices. These may include the production of technical requirements documents, direct observation of workplace practices and the presentation of a portfolio of evidence. This portfolio may include documents, photographs, video and/or audio files.
Students are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment work to their teacher to ensure that the relevant competency standards are being met. Students will be provided with feedback throughout the course to check their progress.
Critical aspects of assessment
The critical aspects of assessment are:
• Validity – the assessment tool is designed and implemented so that it measures performance accurately and precisely
• Reliability – the assessment tool is designed and implemented so that the measurements received are consistent over a period of time or a number of assessment events
• Fairness – the assessment tool is designed and implemented so that it is non-discriminatory and unambiguous
• Flexibility – the assessment tool is designed to allow for its application in a range of different contexts and conditions, and uses a range of methodologies.
