Demonstration/Practical Skills – A range of observation techniques have been included in the assessment tools to help identify the students’ ability to demonstrate their competence against the performance criteria and assessment conditions. This gives the student the opportunity to demonstrate their skills applicable to their job role and workplace.
Written Questioning – The student will be asked to complete a series of written short answer questions based on their knowledge of the unit. Their assessor will ask them a series of verbal questions to confirm their written responses. This usually occurs during an on-site observation/demonstration, where students explain their knowledge based on workplace application.
Written Project – A written assessment tool is provided to the student to gather evidence using a range of methods, these could include research and evidence gathering before documenting the project. The project is normally scenario-based or specific to the learner’s workplace. In some cases, the student is required to collect a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate their competency against the relevant units.
Observation and Third Party Reports – a Thi rd Party Report is provided to a supervisor or employer to gather evidence of the students’ competency on the job. This Report is then reviewed and signed off by the Assessor.
