About this webinar

Assessment mapping is primarily used to demonstrate the validity of an assessment tool. It matches the assessment with the unit of competency and its assessment requirements.

While the purpose is to ensure validity, often assessment mapping documents are not developed or used appropriately. This webinar focusses on how to design and use mapping documents properly to ensure that tools are designed and implemented to gather valid evidence.

Unlock the full potential of assessment mapping and transform your VET practice! Join our expert-led webinar to discover the secrets of designing and utilizing powerful mapping documents, ensuring valid evidence collection and streamlined validation and audit processes.

Empower yourself with the knowledge and techniques that will elevate your assessment design and implementation to new heights, ultimately leading to enhanced student outcomes.

  • Who uses mapping documents, and why?
  • Poor mapping practices and why they are problematic.
  • Mapping documents as the foundation of assessment design
