How are learnerships assessed
on: May 23, 2014, 13:12

An assessment system that is appropriate and serves the objectives of the new learnership system has to be put into place. This assessment system should serve to promote quality into a learning and training as well as to give awards for achieved competencies.

It is recommended that a new system be based on the following guidelines:

    *In the assessment process, language requirement must encourage the development and use of languages previously discriminated against.
    *The procedures of the criteria for assessing learner performance should be laid before the assessment takes place.
    *Assessment in a learnership must, as far as possible, be integrative and not only emphasis practical skills.
    *A wide range of evidence should be promoted in an assessment. Portfolio-based assessment should be privileged for moderation as this form of assessment makes auditing less costly and the evidence can travel.
    *The occurrence of external or final test assessment may not be the norm for all kinds of learnerships. *Generally, "high-risk" learning should be subjected to this final assessment.
    *The quality assurance procedures should be developed in consultation of all relevant parties to establish fairness, efficiency and effectiveness.
    *The determination of learning progress should take place primarily where the learning is taking place. The assessor should be registered as competent with an education and training quality assuror/sector education and training organisation. The assessor may be the learning facilitator or instructor.
    *Available qualified and competent assessors are as important as competent trainers.
