Here's a session on some of the most common challenges for fit-for-purpose assessment tools - and how to avoid having these in the materials your RTO uses

Consistently one of the most challenging aspects for RTOs to ‘get right’, assessment is the crux of accredited training. Why then, is this fundamental element of vocational education so difficult to master?

Join Michelle Charlton to examine the complexities that wrap around assessment development for VET as well as some of the simple instructional design techniques you can apply to have your tools more likely to collect the evidence they should.  

This session will look at seven common pitfalls as well as tips for:

  • Basic principles of designing and developing quality assessment materials

  • Understanding the competing demands of an assessment's purpose (and how to balance these so users aren't overloaded with a sea of information)

  • Assessing assessment tools by others - entirely relevant for confirming suitability of purchased materials

  • Designing a tool that meets requirements
