Assessment is the process of collecting evidence and making judgements on whether competency has been achieved. Competency means the consistent application of knowledge and skill to the standard of performance required in the workplace. It embodies the ability to transfer and apply skills and knowledge to new situations and environments. (Adapted from Standards for RTOS (2015), Glossary)
