Formative assessments conducted during the learning process will consist of written assessments, simulation in a practical environment and a number of self-assessments.
Summative assessment consists of written assessments, assignments and simulation in a practical environment, integrating the assessment of all unit standards and embedded knowledge. Summative assessments is only conducted once the learner has demonstrated proficiency during formative assessment.
In particular assessors should check that the learner is able to demonstrate the ability to consider a range of options and make decisions about:
The quality of the observed practical performance as well as the theory and embedded knowledge behind it.
The different methods that can be used by the learner to display thinking and decision making in the demonstration of practical performance.
