Learn how to prepare for, set up and facilitate sessions for validation of assessment judgements.


Clauses 1.9 - 1.11 of the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015 require RTOs to have a systematic approach to validating assessment practices and judgements.  


This is where an RTO must confirm the tools and practices used in their assessment system, and the decisions made by their assessors to say a learner has the skills and knowledge to be deemed competent. The RTO must also flag areas for further action.


To comply with the requirements for this process, a statistically valid sample of student evidence - and the correlating assessor judgements on this evidence - must be calculated, collated and reviewed.


Any gaps in the assessment process uncovered during Validation of Assessment Judgements is meant to inform future assessment practices and the identification of any deficits relies on the knowledge and skill of participants. 


Participating in a Validation of Assessment Judgement review is also a great PD opportunity for trainers and assessors because of the professional discussions about assessment evidence, assessment benchmarks and assessment judgements.


Join this webinar to learn:

  • How Validation of Assessment Judgements is different from moderation
  • About tools which can be used to plan, implement, manage and facilitate Validation of Assessment Judgements reviews as part of an RTO’s overall assessment validation system
  • How to:
    • Select and organise a statistically valid sample of student evidence and assessor judgements
    • Set up and facilitate Validation of Assessment Judgements reviews ensuring that the right people are involved
    • Sensitively use these reviews as a continuous improvement opportunity which builds assessor capability and really strengthens an RTO’s assessment processes



The checklist ‘Managing Validation of Assessment Judgements Reviews’ is provided for all registrants and participants will also take part in a mini-Validation of Assessment Judgement activity so they can experience what it is like to be a part of a Validation of Assessment Judgements review.
