Feedback from past attendees of this webinar:

  • This webinar emphasised the importance of proper assessment validation (Nunkuwarrin Yunti)

About this Webinar 

Validation is the quality review of the assessment process and provides the opportunity to make recommendations for future improvements to the assessment tools, process and outcomes.

Validation practices enable an independent assessor to determine if the outcomes of the assessment process have resulted in the Rules of Evidence being met. Confirm your currency in this core unit (TAEASS403) from the TAE40116 qualification through contributing to discussion and reaching agreement with other participants of responses to the following questions:

  • What steps have you undertaken to plan a recent assessment validation event?
  • What materials did you make available to members of the validation meeting?
  • What activities took place at the validation meeting to consider if the assessment process and outcomes met the requirements of the training product?
  • What actions were taken after the validation meeting?

And finally, the session will close with a discussion of how you might plan to maintain your currency through the consideration of other currency options.

Key topics covered within the webinar

This webinar, specifically designed to provide professional development that directly aligns with the unit of competency TAEASS403, and will explore:

  • The steps in planning validation events
  • Materials used in validation meetings

  • Actions taken after validation meetings occur
