Assessment Workbook Checklist

Before you commence your assessment, ensure that you have a good knowledge of the subject, have thoroughly read your Learner Resource, and clearly understand the assessment requirements and the expectations of the industry to which the assessment is related.

Assessments are designed to be completed using your industry/organisation, but your Registered Training Organisation (RTO) may assist you by contextualising the unit to be completed in a simulated workplace environment.

You will be required to demonstrate knowledge and skills which must be observed directly by your assessor. Where the observation task may be difficult for the assessor to directly observed, a video recording of the practical observation task must be submitted as supplementary evidence. Verification from at least one third-party signatory, and preferably two or more witnesses is required to confirm your demonstration of these practical knowledge and skills. These witnesses would usually be your current or recent supervisors, or your assessor.

The practical assessment tasks may be completed using your own workplace, a simulated environment, or a mix of both, as instructed by your assessor. To contextualise this assessment to your industry/organisation, you may be asked by your assessor to provide additional information based on your industry/organisation.

Instructions are given for each task. If you have questions, or unclear how to proceed, consult with your assessor.

Records of all aspects of the assessment must be kept in your Learner Assessment Pack

Steps for Candidates

Your Learner Assessment Pack:

  1. Upon receiving your Learner Assessment Pack, discuss with your assessor the expectations and requirements of this assessment. You may also need to supply contact details of one or two work referees who can confirm your skills in the industry.

Discuss with your assessor if you intend to undertake the practical assessment tasks based on your employing organisation, in a simulated business, or in a mix of both.

  • Your Learner Assessment Pack is where you will get the task information. Complete each task as instructed using either your own workplace, or using a simulated business, as discussed with your assessor.
  1. After you complete your assessment, gather and submit your evidence documents as detailed in the task(s) in the timeframe agreed with your assessor.

Reasonable Adjustment

Adapted Reasonable Adjustment in teaching, learning and assessment for candidates with a disability – November 2010 – Prepared by – Queensland VET Development Centre

Reasonable adjustment in VET is the term applied to modifying the learning environment or making changes to the training delivered to assist a candidate with a disability. A reasonable adjustment can be as simple as changing classrooms to be closer to amenities or installing a particular type of software on a computer for a person with vision impairment.

Why make a reasonable adjustment?

We make reasonable adjustments in VET to make sure that candidates with a disability have:

  • The same learning opportunities as candidates without a disability, and
  • The same opportunity to perform and complete assessments as those without a disability.

Reasonable adjustment applied to participation in teaching, learning and assessment activities can include:

  • Customising resources and assessment activities within the training package or accredited course
  • Modifying the presentation medium
  • Candidate support
  • Use of assistive/adaptive technologies
  • Making information accessible both before enrolment and during the course
  • Monitoring the adjustments to ensure candidates needs continue to be met

Assistive/Adaptive Technologies

Assistive/Adaptive technology means ‘software or hardware that has been specifically designed to assist people with disabilities in carrying out daily activities’ (World Wide Web Consortium – W3C). It includes screen readers, magnifiers, voice recognition software, alternative keyboards, devices for grasping, visual alert systems, digital note-takers.

IMPORTANT:

Reasonable adjustment made for collecting candidate assessment evidence must not impact on the standard expected by the workplace, as expressed by the relevant unit(s) of competency. For example, if the assessment were gathering evidence of the candidate’s competency in writing, allowing the candidate to complete the assessment verbally would not be a valid assessment method. The method of assessment used by any reasonable adjustment must still meet the competency requirements.
