Using Assessment Mapping as a QA & Risk Identification Tool


Best-practice methodology for assessment review 

When it comes to the Standards for RTOs, about three-quarters of RTOs struggle with meeting the compliance requirements linked to assessment. All RTOs are required to ensure their assessment complies with what is required by the relevant training package or VET accredited course, and to ensure that the assessment is conducted in accordance with the Rules of Evidence and Principles of Assessment.

Validity is a key area within this which requires that evidence must be aligned to the requirements of the unit, and learners must have the skills, knowledge and attributes as described in the unit.

The quality assurance (QA) of assessments in use by your RTO is a critical early identification process for any instances of where the above is not being met.

Join this session with Michelle Charlton as she shows you how to use the assessment mapping document as a tool to QA assessments and pinpoint any risk they may present to your RTO. The QA process is equally applicable to assessments that have been developed in-house or purchased off the shelf, and will identify where any gaps exist in the materials. It also flags issues that can be fixed before they become an issue at formal validation time – a mandated requirement for all RTOs under Clause 1.10.

Michelle will outline best-practice methodology for assessment review that focuses on validating how well the assessment tools cover the unit of competency requirements. She will also showcase the importance of a precise and accurate mapping document as a basic building block for an RTO’s obligations to the Standards.

This session is a must for anyone looking to:

  • Gain insight to best-practice pre-implementation validation
  • Know how to accurately identify gaps in assessment tools
  • Identify what makes a mapping document useful for rigorous QA
  • Avoid costly potential rectification action because of poor assessment materials
  • Implement a quality check to support the RTO’s assessment system
  • Understand the value of the mapping document to assessment and student outcomes
  • See examples of ‘good to not so good’ assessment mapping with a view to confirming and/or improving their own practice
