14 April 2021: Assessment: The Big Picture

Presented by:   John Dwyer

Sometimes we get so caught up in the detail we forget about the “big picture”.

Assessment is the process of collecting evidence and making judgements on whether competency has been achieved. Competency means the consistent application of knowledge and skill to the standard of performance required in the workplace. It embodies the ability to transfer and apply skills and knowledge to new situations and environments. (Adapted from Standards for RTOS (2015), Glossary)

Key topics covered within the webinar

This webinar will look at a number of “big picture” assessment issues and will explore the questions:

  • What is the purpose of assessment?
  • What types of assessment exist?
  • Where do formative” and “summative” assessment fit?
  • What are the features of competency-based assessment?
  • What is evidence and how is it collected and judged?
  • What are assessment methods and assessment tools and assessment instruments
  • What is the assessor’s role in the assessment process?
