Developing and conducting assessment, in an Australian vocational education and training context, is founded on a number of basic conventions:
The principles of assessment
• Assessment must be valid
o Assessment must include the full range of skills and knowledge needed to demonstrate competency.
o Assessment must include the combination of knowledge and skills with their practical application.
o Assessment, where possible, must include judgements based on evidence drawn from a number of occasions and across a number of contexts.
• Assessment must be reliable
o Assessment must be reliable and must be regularly reviewed to ensure that assessors are making decisions in a consistent manner.
o Assessors must be trained in national competency standards for assessors to ensure reliability.
• Assessment must be flexible
o Assessment, where possible, must cover both the on and off-the-job components of training within a course.
o Assessment must provide for the recog nition of knowledge, skills and attitudes regardless of how they have been acquired.
o Assessment must be made accessible to l earners though a variety of delivery modes, so they can proceed through modularised training packages to gain competencies.
