Unit code:


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. Methods of gathering evidence may include: - verbal and/or written questioning - collection of learner documents - audio and/or visual recordings - teacher observation of satisfactory performance - checklists
