Assessor Course

SETA Assessors Training Course

115753 Conduct outcomes-based assessment 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD
This generic Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standard unit standard is for those who assess people for their achievement of learning outcomes in terms of specified criteria using pre-designed assessment instruments. The outcomes and criteria may be defined in a range of documents including but not limited to unit standards, exit level outcomes, assessment standards, curriculum statements and qualifications.

Those who achieve this unit standard will be able to conduct assessments within their fields of expertise. This unit standard will contribute towards the achievement of a variety of qualifications, particularly within the fields of Education Training and Development Practices and Human Resource Development.

People credited with this unit standard are able to carry out assessments in a fair, valid, reliable and practicable manner that is free of all bias and discrimination, paying particular attention to the three groups targeted for redress: race, gender and disability.

  • In particular, people credited with this unit standard will be able to:
  • Demonstrate understanding of outcomes-based assessment;
  • Prepare for assessments;
  • Conduct assessments;
  • Provide feedback on assessments; and
  • Review assessments.

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING
The credit calculation is based on the assumption that those starting to learn towards this unit standard have no previous assessment experience. It is assumed, though, that the candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards have evaluative expertise within the area of learning in which they intend to assess (see Definition of Terms for a definition of “evaluative expertise”).

UNIT STANDARD RANGE
1. This generic assessment unit standard applies to assessment in all fields of learning. However, it is expected that assessments will be contextualised to meet the requirements of different contexts.

2. Assessment of candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards will only be valid for award of this unit standard if the following requirements are met:
Assessments carried out by the candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standard are in relation to significant, meaningful and coherent outcome statements that include criteria for assessment purposes, and allow for judgements of competence in line with SAQA’s definition of competence i.e. embrace foundational, practical and reflexive dimensions of competence. Outcomes that are highly task-orientated and do not demand much, if any, in the way of reflexive competence, will not be sufficient for measuring competence as an Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standard in terms of this unit standard. It is important that candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards select outcomes that enable them to meet the requirement laid out here.
The candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standard demonstrates repeatability by carrying out at least two assessments :

  • One of which may be a simulated assessment (in order to cover a range of typical assessment situations), and
  • At least one of which must involve a real candidate in a real assessment situation, preferably under the guidance of a mentor.

The assessments may involve two or more candidates in relation to the same outcome.
Candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards produce evidence that they can conduct assessments in RPL situations and for candidates who may have fairly recently acquired the necessary knowledge and skills through courses or learning programmes. However, candidate Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards do not need to carry out both kinds of assessments in practice for the award of this unit standard. Should candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards carry out an RPL-related assessment for the purposes of this unit standard, then it is sufficient for them to show how they might have conducted the assessment differently had it been an assessment linked to recent learning, and vice versa.

3. For the purposes of assessment against this unit standard, candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards should have access to Assessment Guides and will not be expected to design assessments. (See Definition of Terms for a definition of Assessment Guides). Candidate Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards will be expected to interpret the standards at hand in order to ensure their assessment judgements are in accordance with the requirements of the standard. In cases where Assessment Guides are not available, providers should seek ways to make such guides available for the purposes of this assessment. Where candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standard also intend to design assessments, then providers are encouraged to integrate the learning and assessment of the unit standards:

  • Conduct outcomes-based assessments
  • Design and develop outcomes-based assessments

4. Candidate-Assessors course or Assessor Unit Standards should have access to organisational assessment policies, procedures and systems (including moderation). It is assumed the organisational policies and procedures are of a quality sufficient for accreditation purposes. Where such policies and procedures are not yet available, the provider may make general policies and procedures available for the purposes of this assessment.

Further range statements are provided in the body of the unit standard where they apply to particular specific outcomes or assessment criteria.

UNIT STANDARD ESSENTIAL EMBEDDED KNOWLEDGE
The following knowledge is embedded within the unit standard, and will be assessed directly or indirectly through assessment of the specific outcomes in terms of the assessment criteria:

  • Outcomes-based education, training and development
  • Principles of assessment – directly assessed through assessment criterion ‘Key principles of assessment are described and illustrated in practical situations. The descriptions highlight the importance of applying the principles in terms of the possible effect on the assessment process and results.’, and indirectly assessed via a requirement to apply the principles throughout the standard.
  • Principles and practices of RPL – directly assessed through assessment criteria ‘RPL is explained in terms of its purpose, processes and related benefits and challenges. Explanations highlight the potential impact of RPL on individuals, learning organisations and the workplace.’, ‘Inputs are sought from candidates regarding special needs and possible sources of evidence that could contribute to valid assessment, including RPL opportunities.
  • Modifications made to the assessment approach on the basis of the inputs do not affect the validity of the assessment.’ and specific outcome ‘Conduct assessments.’, as well as through application in the rest of the standard.
  • Methods of assessment – directly assessed through assessment criterion ‘A variety of assessment methods are described and compared in terms of how they could be used when conducting assessments in different situations.’, and indirectly assessed through application of the methods
  • Potential barriers to assessment – assessed when dealing with special needs.
  • The principles and mechanisms of the NQF – this knowledge underpins the standard
  • Assessment policies and ETQA requirements

Assessor Course online – the Scam

Assessor course online, ETDP SETA Accredited

Is Your E-Learning or Distance Learning Training Provider Accredited?

High-quality education can be very expensive, time-consuming and challenging.  Nothing is more disappointing than discovering that a certificate or qualification isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on.

Luckily, there is useful information on how to prevent getting defrauded — as commonly happens with e-learning and distance learning providers, especially on the ODETDP Qualification unit standards like Train the Trainer, Assessor, Moderator and SDF.

It’s important to keep in mind that e-learning, distance learning or CD learning isn’t the same thing as classroom learning.  Furthermore, a service provider who is authorized to provide classroom learning isn’t authorised to provide e-learning or CD correspondence training.  Are there currently Training Providers with the ETDP SETA that have approval to offer courses via e-Learning or Distance Learning?

We would strongly recommend that each learner take extra precaution to confirm if his or her Training Provider has scope to offer his course through eLearning or Distance Learning. You could be fallen for a scam!

Report these SCAMS to your SETA. SAQA or the QCTO like the Assessors Course Online.

Keep this in mind as you confirm the training provider’s accreditation, scope and method.

ACCREDITATION

Each Training Provider should mention the following on his or her website, course material or advertising material:

  • Accreditation Number.
  • The SETAs name he or she is accredited with.

You may want to contact the concerned SETA and confirm the accreditation with them in person.  You can also check with the SETA for any appeals or complaints against the provider, or for any reviews on the Training Provider.  You may even consider contacting previous learners for a review.

SCOPE

Training Provider Accreditation and Programme Accreditation (approval) are different things.  It’s advisable to check that the actual programme was approved by the relevant SETA.  The SETA and the training provider should each have a copy of the programme accreditation letter to confirm its dates are still valid.  All 21 SETAs should provide this service.  The unit standard numbers, NQF level and Credits should also appear on the course detail.

CONFIRM THE METHOD OF DELIVERY WAS APPROVED like the Assessors Course Online

The method of delivery is how the training provider is allowed to deliver the programme.

By default, a Training Provider is only allowed to deliver the course using the traditional methods — that is, through classroom contact session.

Any Training Provider who offers a course by any other means such as distance learning, e-learning, correspondence via post, CD, Skype or conference learning must have a special approval letter to do so.  This special approval letter should be producible by the Training Provider (on his website, for example) and also verifiable with the relevant SETA.

What questions you should ask before enrolling for a course:

  • Confirm with the relevant SETA (any of the 21) that the Training Provider is accredited.
  • Confirm with the relevant SETA (any of the 21) that the programme is accredited with this training provider, and still valid.
  • If the method of delivery is different from classroom, the training provider should be able to produce the special approval letter from the SETA.
  • Ask about hidden fees such as: Assessment, Re-Assessment, Support or Registration fees.
  • What is the duration of the course? How long do you have to submit your assignments?
  • Request references — previous clients that you can contact.

TRAINYOUCAN  strive for 100% compliance with the SETAs, SAQA and the NQF act.
