Leading Assessment Validation Activities

Purchase for $55.00 (AUD) incl. GST

Describe key considerations when leading a validation team within an RTO environment 

Validation is an important responsibility for RTOs. However, it represents some of the highest non-compliances at audit. Leading regular assessment validation activities is therefore critical in confirming that an RTO’s assessment system consistently produces valid assessment judgements and ensures that candidates are assessed against all tasks identified in a unit of competency, and the evidence outlined in the associated assessment requirements.

This session will provide specific advice for developing more successful assessment validations. This includes working effectively with colleagues to systematically monitor assessment practice, undertaking risk assessment and analysis to determine the purpose, focus and context of validation activities, as well as supporting others through the validation process. In the end it will offer guidance on how to finalise documentation in keeping with required validation schedules.
