Applying the Principles of Assessment & Rules of Evidence


Templates & techniques to create compliant assessment systems & practices

Clause 1.8 (b) of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015 requires an RTO to implement an assessment system that ensures that assessment (including recognition of prior learning) is conducted in accordance with the Principles of Assessment and the Rules of Evidence.

In simple terms, the assessment process involves asking the “right” questions and getting proof that the candidates can provide the “right” answers. The Principles of Assessment relate to how assessors should plan, conduct and review candidate assessment and the Rules of Evidence provide the guidance on the collection of evidence from these candidates.

This webinar focuses on how to apply the principles of assessment and rules of evidence, and supports practitioners in ensuring that their assessment development and evidence collection meets these guidelines. It will also provide templates and techniques to create compliant assessment systems and practices.

  • Define Principles of Assessment and Rules of Evidence
  • Describe an RTOs responsibilities with regard to the Principles of Assessment and Rules of Evidence
  • Identify key challenges faced when applying these principles and rules
  • Explain how to put the Principles of Assessment and Rules of Evidence into action
