Assessment

Assessors must ensure that sufficient evidence is collected so that all aspects of competency have been demonstrated repeatedly. A minimum of two pieces of evidence for each learning outcome are required to ensure that the learners are able to comprehend or produce the language defined by the learning outcomes. This evidence can be collected through formative or summative assessment. However, if ongoing assessment is to be conducted with successful formative performances providing one piece of evidence, learners should be informed of this process at the beginning of the course. Assessment should be conducted on an ongoing basis throughout the course as students engage in classroom activities and tasks. Evidence should be gathered through teacher observation of satisfactory performance.
