Course overview

Plan, Design, Develop Assessment provides the skills and knowledge required to design and develop assessment tools used to collect evidence, including their application in formative, summative and recognition of prior learning (RPL) assessment in a competency-based assessment system.  It also provides the required skills and knowledge to participate in an assessment validation process.

Target audience

This course is suitable for individuals with assessment planning responsibilities where they are required to identify the components of assessment tools, analyse and interpret assessment tools, and develop assessment instruments (also known as assessment tasks) and assessment plans.

It is ideal for experienced practitioners responsible for the development and/or delivery of training and assessment products and services.

It is also recommended for assessors and workplace supervisors with assessment validation responsibilities participating in, but not necessarily leading, the process.
