TAE PD Week - The Design and Development of Assessment Tools - Part 2

24 June 2020
ONLINE

Designing and developing assessments that will be fit for purpose is a definite skill set.  And when it comes to assessment tools, there’s a broad range of examples that fall on the spectrum of ‘good to not so good’.

As part of TAE PD Week, join Michelle Charlton as she shares some vital pointers that will augment your current knowledge linked to the unit of competency TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools. This is a unit held by every trainer who has, and works under, the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. It’s also a unit many people struggle with, and one that underpins why 75% of RTOs struggle with assessment at audit time.

Following from the previous day’s session, in part two, we’ll look at a broad overview of elements 3 and 4 from the unit: Develop the assessment tool and Review and trial the assessment tool. This is where the developing and reviewing of the assessment tool takes place – How to get instruments into the tool that support the Rules of Evidence? What instructions are required as guidance to users of the tool?  How can the tools be developed so that they will produce similar results across different assessors and across different times? What considerations need to be made to ensure the assessments dovetail with the RTO’s assessment system? And how to confirm the tools are fit for intended purpose?

Rather than a blow-by-blow recap of the learning and assessment activities to achieve this competency in the first place, this session will highlight key areas that are often overlooked in the development stages and show examples from the spectrum of ‘good to not so good’ as tangible benchmarks for getting it right.  Then it will outline best practice methods for reviewing tools and discuss what to do with the data that comes from the review processes.

Even if you are not developing materials but are buying them off the shelf, it is imperative to have a full understanding of TAEASS502 so that you can effectively contextualise and gap fill assessment tools as required!
