Third Party Report
The use of third-party evidence is a valuable strategy for collecting supplementary evidence of the participant’s ‘everyday performance’ rather than performance carried out as part of the formal assessment process.
The Other Party Observation (Third Party) Report (Version 3.0) resource template has been designed to assist RTOs in implementing robust assessment arrangements when using other parties in the evidence collection process.

The template has been aligned to compliance requirements including:
- VET Quality Framework, including the Standards for RTOs 2015; and
- ASQA Guide – Developing Assessment Tools (April 2015).
- ASQA Fact Sheet - Using other parties to collect assessment evidence (May 2016).
Version 3 of the resource has been updated to include further guidance from supporting documentation and feedback from recent ASQA audit activities.
The time saving is provided in MS Word format for ease of customisation and use in your RTO.
