Materials produced by centres to support candidates should:

 

  • enable them to track their achievements as they progress through the learning outcomes and assessment criteria;
  • provide information on where ProQual’s policies and procedures can be viewed;
  • provide a means of enabling Internal and External Quality Assurance staff to authenticate evidence

 

 

Assessment

Candidates must demonstrate the level of knowledge and/or skills described in the unit.

Assessment is the process of measuring a candidate’s knowledge and understanding against

the standards set in the qualification.

 

Each candidate is required to produce evidence which demonstrates their achievement of all of the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for each unit.

 

Evidence can include:             –     assignments/projects/reports

  • worksheets
  • portfolio of evidence
  • record of oral and/or written questioning
  • candidate test papers

 

 

Learning outcomes set out what a candidate is expected to know, understand or be able to do.

 

Assessment criteria specify the standard a candidate must meet to show the learning outcome has been achieved.

 

Learning outcomes and assessment criteria for this qualification can be found from page 7 onwards.

 

To achieve this qualification all candidates must produce evidence which demonstrates their achievement of all of the assessment criteria.

 

There must be valid, authentic and sufficient for all the assessment criteria. However, one piece of evidence may be used to meet the requirements of more than one learning outcome or assessment criterion.

 

 

An internal quality assurance verifier confirms that assessment decisions made in centres are made by competent and qualified assessors, that they are the result of sound and fair assessment practice and that they are recorded accurately and appropriately.

 

Adjustments to Assessment

Adjustments to standard assessment arrangements are made on the individual needs of candidates. ProQual’s Reasonable Adjustments Policy and Special Consideration Policy sets out the steps to follow when implementing reasonable adjustments and special considerations and the service that ProQual provides for some of these arrangements.
