Assessment is not a single event but rather a structured process of gathering evidence and making judgements of the learners’ performance in relation to the qualification. A range of formative and summative methods can be used in assessing learners, this may include:
Written and oral tests/examinations
Case studies and assignments
Role play and simulation sessions
Written reports/work plans
Peer group review
Feedback from beneficiaries
Assessment should be carried out at regular intervals as well as at the end of the periods of study and should be offered in an integrated way. It is envisaged that learners will work at more than one unit standard at a time.
The learners should produce sufficient evidence of achieving each specific outcome of each unit standard. This evidence should initially be assessed for competence by the educator/facilitator.
Once the facilitator believes that the learners has demonstrated competence in a particular unit standard, the facilitator should recommend the portfolio for external moderation by a registered assessor.
