Any observations and practical assessments must be recorded in the observation checklist. All practical tasks should be demonstrated during the length of the course. As the instructor you must maintain a record demonstrating the date of the practical activities and any comments relevant to the performance of each student. Where a student is not able to demonstrate competence in a practical observation activity, further questioning should be put in its place.
As the instructor, you should be assessing the student’s literacy, numeracy and language skills, as well as the content and context of his/her answers.
In some cases, you will have to adjust and amend the assessment tools, using different and varied methods (such as oral assessment), to allow students to be assessed according to their needs and abilities.
Assessment Tool Definitions
Assessment Tool How is it used? What is it?
Learner Workbook Activities
(Entire completion is required) Each student should be given a Learner Workbook which will hold several activities, both formative and summative, that all need to be completed in conjunction with the appropriate sessions. The PowerPoint, Learner Guide and instructor should provide further information to help with the activities.
Observation/Demonstration
(To be completed for each numbered point as stated on the checklist) An observation should be completed for each of the students by the instructor. If the tasks aren’t everyday actions, a simulated environment is acceptable, or a demonstration can be set up. An observation checklist can be found at the end of this document.
Major Activity
(Entire completion is required) A Major Activity is a summative assessment and can be found in the Learner Workbook, after all the activities are completed. This is an extended piece of summative assessment which should take anywhere between 1-2 hours and every student should complete this work. It is a requirement for each unit to check knowledge and understanding.
Skills and Knowledge Activity
(Entire completion is required) A Skills and Knowledge Activity is a summative assessment and is found before the Major Activity in the Learner Workbook. This should take between 1-2 hours and every student should complete this work. It is a requirement for each unit to check knowledge and understanding of the foundation skills and knowledge evidence.
Third Party
(To be completed for each numbered point as stated on the checklist) A Third-Party checklist is very similar to an Observation Checklist in its format, but it can be completed by someone who works with the learner and has witnessed them completing tasks which coincide with the elements of the unit. The checklist can be found at the end of this document.
Case Study
(Entire completion is required) Not all units will have Case Studies but those that do will be clearly stated within the PowerPoint and the Learner Workbook. It will appear as any other activity, but it will be named ‘Case Study’ and will provide an example of a possible real-life situation for the learner to read, interpret and then answer questions on.
Learner Guide
(To be used as an informational guide) The Learner Guide links with the Learner Workbook as it provides the information given during sessions and more. It can help students to further their knowledge and to also complete the activities.
Evidence Document
(Not a necessity for completion of unit but can be used as an aid or to collect further evidence) The Evidence Document lists all the Elements and Performance Criteria with an area for written reports etc, to add evidence to the student’s portfolio. It can be used for any of the performance criteria, especially those which may not have been covered by any other assessment tool. The student can circle several the criteria that they may feel they need further evidence of or it can be used as a guide for completing further Observations and Third-Party reports.
Observation/Demonstration
Throughout this unit, the learner will be expected to show their competency of the elements through observations or demonstrations. The observations and demonstrations will be completed as well as the formative and summative assessments found in the Learner Workbook. An explanation of demonstrations and observations:
Demonstration is off-the-job
A demonstration will require:
? Performing a skill or task that is asked of you
? Undertaking a simulation exercise
Observation is on-the-job
The observation will usually require:
? Performing a work-based skill or task
? Interaction with colleagues and/or customers
The observation/demonstration will take place either in the workplace or the training environment, depending on the task to be undertaken and whether it is an observation or demonstration. Each task must be observed. You will need to ensure you provide the learner with the correct equipment and/or materials to complete the task. You will also need to inform the learner of the time they have to complete the task; this will once again vary, depending on the task.
Learners should be able to demonstrate they can:
1. Develop recruitment, selection and induction policies and procedures
2. Recruit and select staff
3. Manage staff induction.
Learners should also demonstrate the following skills:
? Reading
? Writing
? Oral communication
? Numeracy
? Navigate the world of work
? Interact with others
? Get the work done
