Your Way: Breaking Down Assessing Competence

This 1 hour webinar is from our  suite of Your Way offerings.

It is ready to be presented to your staff, at a time that suit you! Need more information? Simply fill out our enquiry form below for a quote. 

The act of conducting assessment doesn’t just happen – it takes careful planning and preparation to ensure that a whole range of items align to create ‘the perfect storm’ for assessment.

This planning needs to setup the assessment process to ensure the right evidence is gathered while providing support to the learner through the assessment process. Finally, the assessor needs to be able to evaluate that evidence to make a valid judgement about competence, either for stand-alone or clustered units, and follow the required recording and reporting procedures to recognise the achievement of the unit(s). There needs to be solid assessment systems in place to ensure this process produces reliable outcomes.

This webinar, specifically designed to provide professional development that directly aligns with the unit of competency TAEASS402, will explore:

What to consider when preparing for assessment
