Definitions of each of these methods has been drawn from the ASQA Guide for developing assessment Tools (page 5),

  • Direct observation, this can sometimes happen using simulated environments in the classroom, or where interaction with students is required, this will occur in the workplace at a site visit.
  • Product based methods – these are generally reports, displays, case studies and presentations.
  • Questioning – written questioning is used for a number of assessment tasks. This can be done verbally as a reasonable adjustment for students with disabilities impacting their ability to complete written tasks.

Where evidence is gathered over a number of assessments, successful completion of the unit of competency will only be judged after successfully completing each individual assessment.
