“The process of collecting evidence and making judgements on whether competency has been achieved to confirm that an individual can perform to the standard expected in the workplace, as specified in a training package or a VET accredited course.” https://www.asqa.gov.au/standards-vac/definitions
Your Shafston teacher will formally assess your skills, knowledge and understanding. Assessment is competency based, this means you will be required to show / demonstrate the required competencies for the units of competency you are studying.
In order to ensure that Shafston’s assessment is valid, reliable, flexible and fair, Shafston trainers will conduct assessment as per the assessment conditions for each unit of competency you are studying.
There are many different types of assessment. Multiple and varied assessments are used to ensure that learners are able to demonstrate competency. We will ensure that the assessment is conducted in a manner that is fair, flexible, valid and reliable.
Assessments have the following sections Activities, Questioning, Project, and Observation which span across these different tasks. Some of the assessment tasks are ‘stand-alone’ or they may be a combination of these methods of assessment.
There may be
• Written tasks
Written assessments include case studies, question-answer type tasks, written reports and assignments, including reflective evaluations, self-evaluations, project work, demonstrations and class presentations.
This includes written or spoken ‘question-answer’ type tasks in an examination.
Your teacher will observe your performance of tasks in real or simulated workplace environments. This includes participation in role-plays, group discussions and demonstrations of practical skills and knowledge. Students on vocational placement will be observed by a qualified professional.
• Vocational Placement
Vocational placement provides the opportunity to observe professionals in your vocation, gain skills specific to your vocation, engage and interact with your community, and most importantly, to apply what you have learnt in the classroom to the ‘real-world’ vocational environment. You will be mentored and supported by an industry professional and have a valuable opportunity to learn in a structured workplace environment. Your teacher as well as the industry professional will both observe your ability to apply the skills, knowledge and attitudes required in workplace situations and environments.
