ASSESSMENT INFORMATION

Objective of Assessment

The primary objective of assessment is to support and encourage your learning.

Assessment results give the assessor an indication of how well you learnt in class and or areas you may need extra support.

Assessment Feedback and support throughout the Assessment Progress

Your assessor will give you feedback throughout the duration of the unit you are studying and after assessment results. The feedback given to you will always be to support your achievements and to monitor your progress throughout your studies.

Supporting for you in the Assessment Process

The assessment processes selected by the assessor should offer the participant the appropriate level of support. While some participants will not require a great deal of support, there will be others with particular needs. If the assessor is aware of these needs, he or she will be better able to assist participants to identify their skills. Participants will then feel more confident as they prepare for assessment – enabling them to focus on providing evidence against the specified criteria in a way that is known to be acceptable to the assessor
