SETA Assessors Training Course

115753 Conduct outcomes-based assessment 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD
This generic Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standard unit standard is for those who assess people for their achievement of learning outcomes in terms of specified criteria using pre-designed assessment instruments. The outcomes and criteria may be defined in a range of documents including but not limited to unit standards, exit level outcomes, assessment standards, curriculum statements and qualifications.

Those who achieve this unit standard will be able to conduct assessments within their fields of expertise. This unit standard will contribute towards the achievement of a variety of qualifications, particularly within the fields of Education Training and Development Practices and Human Resource Development.

People credited with this unit standard are able to carry out assessments in a fair, valid, reliable and practicable manner that is free of all bias and discrimination, paying particular attention to the three groups targeted for redress: race, gender and disability.

  • In particular, people credited with this unit standard will be able to:
  • Demonstrate understanding of outcomes-based assessment;
  • Prepare for assessments;
  • Conduct assessments;
  • Provide feedback on assessments; and
  • Review assessments.

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING
The credit calculation is based on the assumption that those starting to learn towards this unit standard have no previous assessment experience. It is assumed, though, that the candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards have evaluative expertise within the area of learning in which they intend to assess (see Definition of Terms for a definition of “evaluative expertise”).

UNIT STANDARD RANGE
1. This generic assessment unit standard applies to assessment in all fields of learning. However, it is expected that assessments will be contextualised to meet the requirements of different contexts.

2. Assessment of candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards will only be valid for award of this unit standard if the following requirements are met:
Assessments carried out by the candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standard are in relation to significant, meaningful and coherent outcome statements that include criteria for assessment purposes, and allow for judgements of competence in line with SAQA’s definition of competence i.e. embrace foundational, practical and reflexive dimensions of competence. Outcomes that are highly task-orientated and do not demand much, if any, in the way of reflexive competence, will not be sufficient for measuring competence as an Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standard in terms of this unit standard. It is important that candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards select outcomes that enable them to meet the requirement laid out here.
The candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standard demonstrates repeatability by carrying out at least two assessments :

  • One of which may be a simulated assessment (in order to cover a range of typical assessment situations), and
  • At least one of which must involve a real candidate in a real assessment situation, preferably under the guidance of a mentor.

The assessments may involve two or more candidates in relation to the same outcome.
Candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards produce evidence that they can conduct assessments in RPL situations and for candidates who may have fairly recently acquired the necessary knowledge and skills through courses or learning programmes. However, candidate Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards do not need to carry out both kinds of assessments in practice for the award of this unit standard. Should candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards carry out an RPL-related assessment for the purposes of this unit standard, then it is sufficient for them to show how they might have conducted the assessment differently had it been an assessment linked to recent learning, and vice versa.

3. For the purposes of assessment against this unit standard, candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards should have access to Assessment Guides and will not be expected to design assessments. (See Definition of Terms for a definition of Assessment Guides). Candidate Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards will be expected to interpret the standards at hand in order to ensure their assessment judgements are in accordance with the requirements of the standard. In cases where Assessment Guides are not available, providers should seek ways to make such guides available for the purposes of this assessment. Where candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standard also intend to design assessments, then providers are encouraged to integrate the learning and assessment of the unit standards:

  • Conduct outcomes-based assessments
  • Design and develop outcomes-based assessments

4. Candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards should have access to organisational assessment policies, procedures and systems (including moderation). It is assumed the organisational policies and procedures are of a quality sufficient for accreditation purposes. Where such policies and procedures are not yet available, the provider may make general policies and procedures available for the purposes of this assessment.

Further range statements are provided in the body of the unit standard where they apply to particular specific outcomes or assessment criteria.

The descriptions highlight the importance of applying the principles in terms of the possible effect on the assessment process and results.’, and indirectly assessed via a requirement to apply the principles throughout the standard.

3. IS THERE A NEED FOR TRAINERS AND ASSESSORS?

Definitely yes! We’ve been tracking most of our freelance learners who completed these courses in the past with very positive feedback.  Most have either found permanent employment in corporate organisation or opened their own business.

Well done guys! We proud of you!

First time students can earning an income with freelance work until the perfect opportunity arrives. There will always be job opportunities for qualified Trainers and Assessors.

Why Trainers and Assessors?

Employers and Training Providers are more likely to contact people who are capable of training and assessing their learners, rather than contracting two different individuals to perform this task.

4. HOW TO NETWORK AND GET THAT PERFECT (FREELANCE) JOB

Here is some networking tips!

  1. Make sure you have all the required ETDP Certificates, ETDP SETA Statement of Results and a detailed Personal Portfolio with all your previous education and workplace experience. Best practice is to have this ready in PDF format to submit electronically if needed.
  2. Register with all the related SETAs as an Assessor with at least one unit standard where possible. It’s so much easier to request extension of scope than submitting an entire new application.
  3. Subscribe to all possible Education newsletters including our free service on www.skillsjobs.co.za.
  4. Subscribe to the SETA newsletters and make sure you attend their annual stakeholders meetings which are open to anyone to attend. These are perfect opportunities for you to meet new Training Providers and Employer to get connected to new projects and JOB opportunities.

REMEMBER:

People connect with faces, not with CV’s, so don’t waste your time with endless online JOB Adverts. Get yourself out there and start a career in the Training and Education field today.
