An Introduction to Local Assessment for New Assessors (February 2022, Online)

Please note: This event is a repeat of the previous FESS PD event ‘An Introduction to Local Assessment for New Assessors’ delivered online in 2020/2021.

The focus of the event is on supporting the assessor working in a further education and training environment, where the assessor is required to develop local assessment instruments and related documentation.

In advance of the event, a Powerpoint presentation with supporting documentation will be made available to those who have booked a place, with the expectation that they will review them prior to the event. The event will then facilitate new assessors to tease out the detail contained in the presentation and documentation. Those who log into the session will also be facilitated to ask questions and request clarification on issues relevant to their provision and/or context.

The following topics will be covered:
• An overview of the assessment process, including key milestones
• Ensuring an understanding of the standard associated with levels 1 – 6 of the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ)
• Devising local assessment instruments (briefs and examination papers), marking schemes and outline solutions
• Making assessment judgements/decisions

The target audience for this event is: those assessing learners for the first time, using locally devised assessment instruments.

Facilitation: This event will be facilitated by FESS.

Please note: Pre-booking is essential. Please do not book onto this session unless you are sure that you will attend / have approval to attend (if required). If an emergency arises, please inform us ASAP (cpdcancellations@fess.ie) as we operate a waiting list system and if time allows we can offer your booked place to another person.
