Observation/Practical Skills – A range of observation techniques have been included in the assessment tools to help identify the students’ ability to demonstrate their competence against the performance criteria and assessment conditions. The assessor utilises the Observation Checklist to identify observable skills either during a practical assessment or the student demonstrates the skills on the job.
Oral Questioning – The student will be assessed using Oral Questioning based on their understanding of the competency being assessed. This can be undertaken during an observation/demonstration or through an interview method, where students discuss their competence with the Assessor.
Written – A written assessment tool is provided to the student to gather evidence using a range of methods, these could include short answer questions, long answer questions, scenario based questions, or multiple choice.
Case Studies – This method is used to provide the learner with the opportunity to apply their required knowledge within a given context, providing the student with a task whereby they can apply their skills to a real life example. Simulated – This method allows the student to demonstrate their skill and attitude in their current work environment or a mirrored simulated environment. The evidence gathered from this approach is to assist the assessor by observing their conceptual, interpersonal and technical ability.
