The outcomes and criteria may be defined in a range of documents including, but not limited to, unit standards, exit level outcomes, assessment standards, curriculum statements and qualifications.
Those who achieve this unit standard will be able to conduct assessments within their fields of expertise. This unit standard contributes towards the achievement of a variety of qualifications, particularly within the fields of Education Training and Development Practices and Human Resource Development.
People credited with this unit standard are able to carry out assessments in a fair, valid, reliable and practicable manner that are free of all bias and discrimination, and pay particular attention to addressing inequalities caused by race, gender and disability.
Programme Entry Level Requirements
The programme content is written on the assumption that those starting to learn this unit standard, which is you as the candidate-assessors, have no previous assessment experience. It is assumed, though, that the candidate-assessors know how to evaluate within the area of learning in which they intend to assess.
This programme is outcomes-based which means we take the responsibility of learning away from the facilitator and place it in your hands.
Your learning will begin in the training room where you will identify the skills and knowledge you require in order to meet the specific outcomes and assessment criteria contained in the unit standard.
In this programme, we will be covering the following learning outcomes:
- demonstrate understanding of outcomes-based assessment
- prepare for assessments
- conduct assessments
- provide feedback on assessments
- review assessments.
