Assessment in Action: Applying the Principles of Assessment and Rules of Evidence

Clause 1.8 (b) of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015 requires an RTO to implement an assessment system that ensures that assessment (including recognition of prior learning) is conducted in accordance with the Principles of Assessment and the Rules of Evidence. In simple terms, the assessment process involves asking the “right” questions and getting proof that the candidates can provide the “right” answers. The Principles of Assessment relate to how assessors should plan, conduct and review candidate assessment and the Rules of Evidence provide the guidance on the collection of evidence from these candidates.

Validating Online Assessment

Validation is an important responsibility for RTOs. With the rapid shift to moving training and assessment online, it is even more important to confirm the RTO has a robust assessment system, that can consistently produce valid assessment experiences and judgements. In determining competency of a learner, RTOs must ensure that assessments address all assessment requirements of a unit of competency. This is the same, regardless of whether the assessment is conducted face-to-face or by an online delivery mode. However, online assessment can produce some unique challenges that require specific review. This webinar will provide advice and guidance for creating a winning validation strategy for online assessment that aims at developing better systems and outcomes.

Enhancing support for Language, Literacy and Numeracy skill needs

Everyone uses LLN skills every day for a variety of purposes – personal, social, training and for work. Different tasks and contexts need different types of reading, writing, listening, speaking and numeracy skills, so people need to continually develop and adapt these skills to suit new situations.

This webinar will provide guidance on how to analyse the LLN needs in a training specification or workplace standard, using the Australian Core Skills Framework. It will also shine a light on key LLN challenges students may present with and will discuss how trainers and assessors can select, use and develop strategies and resources (including specialist support) to address the requirements. Thus, creating better outcomes for learners.

Developing Effective Recognition Strategies

Recognition is a process that assesses the competencies acquired by an individual through formal, non-formal and informal learning in relation to the established criteria and requirements for a given training product (e.g., unit of competency, skill set or qualification). A recognition strategy is therefore the roadmap developed by an organisation to support the acknowledgement of current competencies against workplace or industry criteria, or recognition of prior learning (RPL) leading to the completion of units of competency or qualifications.

Leading an Assessment Validation Team

Validation is an important responsibility for RTOs. However, it represents some of the highest non-compliances at audit. Leading regular assessment validation activities is therefore critical in confirming that an RTO’s assessment system consistently produces valid assessment judgements and ensures that candidates are assessed against all tasks identified in a unit of competency, and the evidence outlined in the associated assessment requirements. This webinar will provide specific advice for how to lead an assessment validation team within an RTO environment. This includes working effectively with colleagues to systematically monitor assessment practice, undertaking risk assessment and analysis to determine the purpose, focus and context of validation activities, as well as supporting others through the validation process. In the end it will offer guidance on how to finalise documentation in keeping with required validation schedules.
