Developing Effective Competency-Based Assessment Tools


What competency-based assessment actually is

The assessment process tells the story of each student’s progress – the skills and knowledge they’ve gained and the areas they need further development in to make them employment ready.

Designing effective competency-based assessments is essential to ensuring VET programs are meeting the needs of students, employers and the industry.

Join VET leader, Andrea Bateman for this engaging one-hour webinar to unpack the essentials of competency-based assessments and how it relates to the various assessment methods.

The group will break down what competency-based assessment actually is, and how different understandings and definitions can impact on the development of assessment tools and assessment methods.

Participants are encouraged to bring along one of their own assessment tools (instructions to assessors and candidates and assessors, all tasks and mapping if you have it) to use in the self-evaluation exercise.
