Developing an assessment plan

Preparation for an assessment plan includes:
• familiarisation with national standards,
• determining the requirements from the unit standards, (specific outcomes, assessment criteria, range statements, and underpinning knowledge ),
• analysing all the requirements and specifications that will affect your assessment design,
• identify the types of evidence required,
• identify the most suitable assessment methods,
• identify whether the workplace has an assessment policy that indicates specific requirements and processes,
• consult with the learner to establish his/her assessment needs,
• make sure that the learner knows how he/she will be assessed,
• identify opportunities for assessment and develop a strategy to set target dates, and
• develop an assessment plan to suit the learner’s needs.
