NVPDW: The 123 of Creating Observation Checklists

23 October 2018

This webinar is one of ten available during National VET PD Week- a joint venture between Velg Training and Australian Council for Private Education and Training.

This webinar is being hosted by Velg Training.

About this webinar

This webinar will break the process down of developing quality observation checklists for evidence gathering.

Units of competency describe both the skills and knowledge (amongst other aspects) that students must demonstrate in order to be deemed competent.

Evidence of these judgments needs to be retained for a period of time, but how do we keep evidence of a student's performance of skills for the cake they baked months ago? One solution is to ensure the RTO uses comprehensive observation checklists to keep a record of the performance of skills. This webinar will break the process down of developing quality observation checklists for evidence gathering.

Key topics covered within webinar

  • Purpose of an observation checklist
  • What is not an observation checklist
  • Analysing the task
  • Defining observable behaviours
  • Mapping to the unit of competency
