TAEASS401B Plan assessment activities and processes

26 Jan

Assessment Three – Practical Assessment
PROJECT 1
Assessment Instructions
You must select two (2) units of competency at different AQF levels. One unit must be at a Certificate I level and the other must be at a Certificate II level.

Your assessment plans may reflect or draw from the training and assessment strategies you created in TAEDES401A and TAEDES402A.

Please be mindful that there is very limited information available on the http://www.training.gov.au website for accredited courses. If you select an accredited course you must submit the course outline with your assessment. We highly recommend selecting units of competency for this activity.
Please go to the http://www.training.gov.au website and search for your courses.

PART 1 – 4 must be completed for each unit of competency.

Please choose your units carefully as you will be asked to conduct an assessment on your learners in TAEASS402B Assess competence.

PART 1
For each unit of competency you are required to complete APPENDIX 1 – Assessment Plan.

PART 2
Create at least two (2) assessment tools for each unit of competency selected in PART 1. Each assessment tool must address the following:
1.    Address all unit requirements (i.e. Elements, Performance Criteria, Required skills, Required knowledge and Evidence requirements) for each of the selected units
2.    Demonstrate the use of a variety of assessment tools (i.e., written questions, case studies, role plays, labelling activities, research projects , observation etc.) for each unit
3.    Ensure that the principles of assessment and the rules of evidence are met
4.    Provide adequate instructions to the candidate
5.    Indicate any flexible arrangements that can be offered
6.    Be contextualised to the target group and/or assessment environment

PART 3
Create an Assessor Guide (also commonly known as a marking guide) for each assessment tool that was developed in PART 1. Each assessor guide must address the following:
1.    Adequate instructions provided to the assessor to ensure a consistent and fair assessment process
2.    Appropriate benchmark responses for each assessment item to ensure consistent and fair assessment decisions are able to be made

Once you have created the assessor guide, you must complete APPENDIX 2: Assessment Mapping for each unit of competency.

PART 4
Trial each assessment tool that you have created with two (2) participants. You must use Appendix 3 – Assessment Tool Review to document the trial.

It is a mandatory requirement that you provide a final copy of the assessment tools as a result of any amendments made after the trial.

PROJECT 2
Assessment Instructions
You must select a unit of competency to be assessed via a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) pathway. The selected unit must be from a different AQF level than the units selected in Project 1 (e.g. certificate III or certificate IV level).

Please be mindful that there is very limited information available on the http://www.training.gov.au website for accredited courses. If you select an accredited course you must submit the course outline with your assessment. We highly recommend selecting units of competency for this activity.

Please go to the http://www.training.gov.au website and search for your courses.

Please choose your units carefully as you will be asked to conduct a RPL assessment on your learners in TAEASS402B Assess competence.

PART 1
For your chosen unit of competency you are required to complete APPENDIX 1 – Assessment Plan.

PART 2
Create a RPL assessment tool for the unit of competency selected in PART 1. The assessment tool must address the following:
1.    Address all unit requirements (i.e. Elements, Performance Criteria, Required skills, Required knowledge and Evidence requirements) for your selected unit
2.    Demonstrate the use of a variety of assessment tools (i.e., written questions, case studies, role plays, labelling activities, research projects , observation etc.) for each unit
3.    Ensure that the principles of assessment and the rules of evidence are met
4.    Provide adequate instructions to the candidate
5.    Indicate any flexible arrangements that can be offered
6.    Be contextualised to the target group and/or assessment environment

Once you have created the RPL assessment tool, you must complete APPENDIX 2: Assessment Mapping for your unit of competency.

PART 3
Trial the RPL assessment tool that you have created with two (2) participants. You must use Appendix 3 – Assessment Tool Review to document the trial.

It is a mandatory requirement that you provide a final copy of the assessment tool as a result of any amendments made after the trial.
