These questions are all in a short answer format. The longer questions requiringthe application of concepts are covered in the other assessments. You must answer allquestions using your own words. However, you may reference your learner guide andother online or hard copy resources to complete this assessment.If you are currently working as part of an Early Childhood Education/Child Care team, youmay answer these questions based on your own workplace. Otherwise consider what youshould do if you were working as part of an Early Childhood Education/Child Care team.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 byindustry as competency standards.• Assessment should mirror the environment the learner will encounter in theworkplace.• Assessment criteria should be clearly stated to the learner at the beginning of thelearning process.• Assessment should be holistic. That is it aims to assess as many elements and/orunits of competency as is feasible at one time.• In competency assessment a learner receives one of only two outcomes – competentor not yet competent.• The basis of assessment is in applying knowledge for some purpose. In acompetency system, knowledge for the sake of knowledge is seen to be ineffectualunless 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 thetrainer and learner. Assessable outcomes are tied to the relevant industrycompetency standards where these exist. Where such competencies do not exist, theoutcomes are based upon those identified in a training needs analysis.Assessment Workbook 3 V5.4 Produced 24 June 2021Page 5 © Compliant Learning ResourcesDefinition of competencyAssessment in this context can be defined as:• The fair, valid, reliable and flexible gathering and recording of evidence to supportjudgement on whether competence has been achieved. Skills and knowledge(developed either in a structured learning situation, at work, or in some othercontext) are assessed against national standards of competence required byindustry, rather than compared with the skills and knowledge of other learners.THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF ASSESSING NATIONALLYRECOGNISED TRAININGDeveloping and conducing assessment, in an Australian vocational education and trainingcontext, is founded on a number of basic conventions:The Principles of Assessment• Assessment must be valido Assessment must include the full range of skills and knowledge needed todemonstrate competency.o Assessment must include the combination of knowledge and skills with theirpractical application.o Assessment, where possible, must include judgements based on evidencedrawn from a number of occasions and across a number of contexts.• Assessment must be reliableo Assessment must be reliable and must be regularly reviewed to ensure thatassessors are making decisions in a consistent manner.o Assessors must be trained in national competency standards for assessors toensure reliability.• Assessment must be flexibleo Assessment, where possible, must cover both the on and off-the-jobcomponents of training within a course.o Assessment must provide for the recognition of knowledge, skills, andattitudes regardless of how they have been acquired.o Assessment must be made accessible to learners though a variety of deliverymodes, so they can proceed through modularised training packages to gaincompetencies.Assessment Workbook 3 V5.4 Produced 24 June 2021Page 6 © Compliant Learning Resources• Assessment must be fair and equitableo Assessment must be equitable to all groups of learners.o Assessment procedures and criteria must be made clear to all learners beforeassessment.o Assessment must be mutually developed and agreed upon between assessorand the assessed.o Assessment must be able to be challenged. Appropriate mechanisms must bemade 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 evidencemust be valid, sufficient, authentic and current;• Valido Evidence gathered should meet the requirements of the unit of competency.This evidence should match or at least reflect the type of performance that isto be assessed, whether it covers knowledge, skills or attitudes.• Sufficiento This rule relates to the amount of evidence gathered It is imperative thatenough evidence is gathered to satisfy the requirements that the learner iscompetent across all aspects of the unit of competency.• Authentico When evidence is gathered the assessor must be satisfied that evidence is thelearner’s own work.• Currento This relates to the recency of the evidence and whether the evidence relates tocurrent abilities.THE DIMENSIONS OF COMPETENCYThe national concept of competency includes all aspects of work performance, and not onlynarrow task skills. The four dimensions of competency are:• Task skills• Task management skills• Contingency management skills• Job role and environment skillsAssessment Workbook 3 V5.4 Produced 24 June 2021Page 7 © Compliant Learning ResourcesREASONABLE ADJUSTMENTAdapted Reasonable Adjustment in teaching, learning, and assessment for learners witha disability – November 2010 – Prepared by – Queensland VET Development CentreReasonable adjustment in VET is the term applied to modifying the learning environmentor making changes to the training delivered to assist a learner with a disability. Areasonable adjustment can be as simple as changing classrooms to be closer to amenities,or installing a particular type of software on a computer for a person with visionimpairment.Why make a reasonable adjustment?We make reasonable adjustments in VET to make sure that learners with a disability have:• the same learning opportunities as learners without a disability• the same opportunity to perform and complete assessments as those without adisability.Reasonable adjustment applied to participation in teaching, learning andassessment activities can include:• customising resources and assessment activities within the training package oraccredited course• modifying the presentation medium learner support• use of assistive / adaptive technologies• making information accessible both prior to enrolment and during the course• monitoring the adjustments to ensure learner needs continue to be met.Assistive / Adaptive TechnologiesAssistive/adaptive technology means ‘software or hardware that has been specificallydesigned to assist people with disabilities in carrying out daily activities’ (World Wide WebConsortium – W3C). It includes screen readers, magnifiers, voice recognition software,alternative keyboards, devices for grasping, visual alert systems, and digital note takers.Assessment Workbook 3 V5.4 Produced 24 June 2021Page 8 © Compliant Learning ResourcesIMPORTANT NOTEReasonable adjustment made for collecting candidate assessment evidence must not impact on thestandard expected by the workplace, as expressed by the relevant Unit(s) of Competency. Forexample, if the assessment was gathering evidence of the candidate ’s competency in writing,allowing the candidate to complete the assessment verbally would not be a valid assessmentmethod. The method of assessment used by any reasonable adjustment must still meet thecompetency requirements.Assessment Workbook 3 V5.4 Produced 24 June 2021Page 9 © Compliant Learning ResourcesCHEATING AND PLAGIARISMWhat is Cheating?Cheating within the context of the study environment means to dishonestly present anassessment task or assessment activity as genuinely representing your own understandingof and/or ability in the subject concerned.Some examples of cheating are:• Submitting someone else’s work as your own. Whether you have that personsconsent or not.• Submitting another author’s work as your own, without proper acknowledgement ofthe author.• To allow someone else to submit your own work as theirs.• To use any part of someone else’s work without the proper acknowledgementThere are other forms of cheating not contained in this list. These are merely given as someexamples. If you are unsure about whether any particular behaviour would constituteplagiarism or cheating, check with your trainer prior to submitting your assessment work.What is Plagiarism?Plagiarism is a form of cheating and includes presenting another person or organisation’sideas or expressions as your own. This includes, however is not limited to: copying writtenworks such as books or journals, data or images, tables, diagrams, designs, plans,photographs, film, music, formulae, web sites, and computer programs.How do I avoid Plagiarism or Cheating?Students are advised to note the following advice to avoid claims of plagiarism or cheating:• Always reference other people’s work. You may quote from someone else’swork (for example from websites, textbooks, journals or other published materials)but you must always indicate the author and source of the material.• Always reference your sources. You should name sources for any graphs, tablesor specific data, which you include in your assignment.• You must not copy someone else’s work and present it as your own.• You must not falsify assessment evidence.Assessment Workbook 3 V5.4 Produced 24 June 2021Page 10 © Compliant Learning ResourcesTHE UNITS OF COMPETENCYEach unit of competency can be unbundled to reveal two key assessment components:1. the performance criteria• specifying the required level of performance2. the evidence guide• Describing the underpinning knowledge and skills that must bedemonstrated to determine competence.
