Do You Need to Validate Your Assessments Online?

Do You Need to Validate Your Assessments Online? image

Technology has definitely become familiar to us over the past 12 months, as we become more comfortable teaching and meeting in video conferencing spaces. These spaces can also be used in our compliance practices!

Trying to get the right people in the room at the same time to validate assessment is a challenge that has certainly been highlighted in recent times. Managing the impacts of lockdowns by working from home has made it more difficult to coordinate effective validation sessions.

The immediate need to improve our validation practices has been brought to the forefront, as we continue to work towards our responsibilities regarding validation while we endure a disrupted working environment. However, when things do finally return to what will be the ‘new normal’, our learning will be retained, and we can continue to use them to support a more robust process for ensuring quality validation. This includes leveraging from a greater pool of appropriate participants and working in a way that can provide more time for review and reflection in a systematic way.

So how do we cook up a best practice approach when it comes to conducting effective validation remotely?

Technology has become more familiar to us over the past 12 months, and we are becoming comfortable with teaching and meeting in video conferencing spaces. These spaces can also be used in our compliance processes, and both synchronous and asynchronous technologies and techniques can allow for improved collaboration, and better documentation of discussion and decision making.

Join Consultant, Sarah Phillips for the Conducting Validation Online webinar, which is designed for those coordinating or participating in assessment validation in the online space. It will explore how to set up a range of tools and processes to engage those who are involved, provide opportunity for collaboration and document participation, while ensuring the opportunity for those crucial discussions can be conducted effectively and without compromise.

Key topics covered within the webinar include:

  • strategies for planning and participating in validation in a remote environment
  • strategies for collaborating using both synchronous and asynchronous technologies
  • digital tools that can be used to support robust validation, and
  • keeping a robust paper trail.
