Course Overview
Study from home during COVID-19 restrictions

Whilst we pride ourselves on our hands-on training, we have had to adjust most of our courses for study from home and remote learning during the COVID-19 restrictions. This means courses will be delivered using a range of methods including online learning, virtual classrooms, workbooks and direct contact with your teacher.

Given the government restrictions that are now in place to reduce the spread of coronavirus in Australia, we expect this new model of study will continue until the government makes changes to these restrictions.

Introduction

This course provides the skills and knowledge you require to be able to design and develop assessment tools used to guide the collection of quality evidence. You will learn how to apply the tools in formative, summative and recognition of prior learning (RPL) assessment.

The content is designed for experienced practitioners who are responsible for the development and/or delivery of training and assessment products and services.

You will gain one of the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) required units to be eligible to be employed in the Australian Vocational Education and Training (VET) Sector.

What will I Learn?

  • determine the focus of assessment tools from benchmarks and units of competency
  • design assessment tools in line with the ASQA Standards, and both industry and student expectations and contexts
  • develop the assessment tools to meet the quality requirements of registered training organisations (RTOs)
  • review, trial and modify the assessment tools.

Mode of delivery

This short course is delivered through a combination of face-to-face classes on campus and virtual classroom.

Virtual classroom is a live online teaching and learning environment where teachers and students can present course materials, engage and interact with one another, and work in groups together.

Assessment

This course involves accredited units.  You will be required to complete assessment tasks to demonstrate your underpinning knowledge, skills and attributes to meet the course outcomes.  A combination of written, oral and practical assessment strategies will be used in either a classroom, online or workplace environment. 

Where units require demonstration of skills in a workplace environment, you will have the opportunity to do this either in your own workplace (where appropriate), through a practical placement, or by using one of the Institute's simulated workshops/classrooms.  Detailed information about the types, conduct and dates of assessments will be provided in advance.  You will also be provided with information about the opportunity for reassessment and appeal.
