Know the different assessment techniques
Learners will be assessed by the use of valid and reliable assessment techniques. Different techniques will be appropriate and valid to generate different forms of learner evidence for a range of learning outcomes. The assessment technique(s) to be used by the aqssessor will be outlined in the component specification (Section on Specific Assessment Requirements) and the programme module.
For each technique the assessor is required to devise the following:
- an assessment instrument (an examination paper or assessment brief) including instructions/guidelines and assessment criteria
- a marking scheme including outline solutions, as appropriate
