Our TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools course has been designed for current trainers and assessors who already hold TAE40110 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and who do not hold this unit. It applies to those who develop and/or deliver assessments (formative, summative and RPL).
The course has been designed using a contemporary and blended learning approach. It incorporates, online pre-learning, teacher facilitation, peer to peer learning, reflection and self-paced learning. The face to face workshop is engaging, informative and will help consolidate key learning concepts. Students will kick start assessment activities during the workshop and leave with a clear completion pathway. Our intuitive assessments are based on realistic training scenarios and will be relevant to anyone working or planning on working in a training and assessment setting. Face to face (currently zoom) post workshop help days are available for students that require revision, consolidation of assessment design concepts and or further learning guidance.
On successful completion of this course, you will be issued with a TAEASS502 Design and develop assessment tools Statement of Attainment.
