INTRODUCTION
Assessment is a difficult process we understand this and have
developed a range of assessment kits, such as this, to facilitate a painless
process for both the assessor and the learner being assessed.
There are a number of characteristics of assessment, ranging fromsubjective assessment (which is based on opinions and feelings), toobjective assessment (which is based clearly on defined processes and
specific standards). Nearly all assessment involves a mixture of both
types of assessment because it is almost impossible to eradicate the
subjectivity humans carry into the process of assessing. The goal in
developing and implementing these assessment kits is to work towards
the objective end as far as possible and to reduce the degree of opinions
and feelings present.
WHAT IS COMPETENCY BASED ASSESSMENT
The features of a competency based assessment system are:
It is focused on what learners can do and whether it meets the
criteria specified by industry as competency standards.
Assessment should mirror the environment the learner will
encounter in the workplace.
Assessment criteria should be clearly stated to the learner at the
beginning of the learning process.
Assessment should be holistic. That is it aims to assess as many
elements and/or units of competency as is feasible at one time.
In competency assessment a learner receives one of only two
outcomes – competent or not yet competent.
The basis of assessment is in applying knowledge for some
purpose. In a competency system, knowledge for the sake of
knowledge is seen to be ineffectual unless it assists a person to
perform a task to the level required in the workplace.
The emphasis in assessment is on assessable outcomes that are
clearly stated for the trainer and learner. Assessable outcomes are
tied to the relevant industry competency standards where these
exist. Where such competencies do not exist, the outcomes are
based upon those identified in a training needs analysis.

Definition of competency
Assessment in this context can be defined as:
The fair, valid, reliable and flexible gathering and recording of
evidence to support judgement on whether competence has been
achieved. Skills and knowledge (developed either in a structured
learning situation, at work, or in some other context) are assessed
against national standards of competence required by industry,
rather than compared with the skills and knowledge of other
learners.
THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF ASSESSING
NATIONALLY RECOGNISED TRAINING
Developing and conducing assessment, in an Australian vocational
education and training context, is founded on a number of basic
conventions:
The principles of assessment
Assessment must be valid
o Assessment must include the full range of skills and
knowledge needed to demonstrate competency.
o Assessment must include the combination of knowledge and
skills with their practical application.
o Assessment, where possible, must include judgements based
on evidence drawn from a number of occasions and across a
number of contexts.
Assessment must be reliable
o Assessment must be reliable and must be regularly reviewed
to ensure that assessors are making decisions in a consistent
manner.
o Assessors must be trained in national competency standards
for assessors to ensure reliability.
Assessment must be flexible
o Assessment, where possible, must cover both the on and off-
the-job components of training within a course.
o Assessment must provide for the recognition of knowledge,
skills and attitudes regardless of how they have been
acquired.

o Assessment must be made accessible to learners though a
variety of delivery modes, so they can proceed through
modularised training packages to gain competencies.

Assessment must be fair and equitable
o Assessment must be equitable to all groups of learners.
o Assessment procedures and criteria must be made clear to all
learners before assessment.
o Assessment must be mutually developed and agreed upon
between assessor and the assessed.
o Assessment must be able to be challenged. Appropriate
mechanisms must be made for reassessment as a result of
challenge.
The rules of evidence (from
Training in Australia by M Tovey, D Lawlor)
When collecting evidence there are certain rules that apply to that
evidence. All evidence must be valid, sufficient, authentic and current;
Valid
o Evidence gathered should meet the requirements of the unit
of competency. This evidence should match or at least reflect
the type of performance that is to be assessed, whether it
covers knowledge, skills or attitudes.
Sufficient
o This rule relates to the amount of evidence gathered It is
imperative that enough evidence is gathered to satisfy the
requirements that the learner is competent across all aspects
of the unit of competency.
Authentic
o When evidence is gathered the assessor must be satisfied
that evidence is the learner’s own work.
Current
o This relates to the recency of the evidence and whether the
evidence relates to current abilities.
THE DIMENSIONS OF COMPETENCY
The national concept of competency includes all aspects of work
performance, and not only narrow task skills. The four dimensions of
competency are:
Task skills
Task management skills
Contingency management skills
Job role and environment skills

THE UNIT OF COMPETENCY
For the purpose of delivering the Qualification CHC50113 Diploma
in Early Childhood Education and Care clustered assessment of
units of competency will occur.
When assessing each unit it is important to understand how they
are structured in order to meet assessment requirements.
Each unit of competency can be unbundled to reveal two key assessment
components:
1. the performance criteria
a. specifying the required level of performance
2. the Assessment Requirements
a. Performance Evidence
b. Knowledge Evidence
c. Assessment Conditions
