Pathways conversation

  • the skills, experiences and education you already have
  • how your language, literacy and numeracy skills will best suit the course

The Foundation Skills Assessment Tool (FSAT) is an interactive online tool designed to identify and measure your foundation skill levels. These skills include language, literacy and numeracy; skills that are fundamental to participation in the workforce, the community and in adult education and training.

The foundation skills assessment will assist us to enrol you in a qualification level that is most appropriate and suitable for to you. This will also help us to identify areas where we can offer additional support or advice to help you with your studies.

We will make every attempt to meet the differing needs of students who experience language/literacy/numeracy barriers, cultural and/or linguistic differences and challenges relating to disability.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Recognition of prior English learning is incorporated into the initial placement assessment. If the assessment results show previous learning to a level higher than ACSF Level 3 the learner will be considered to have achieved functional English.

Potential for the CT of all or some of the units in this qualification is assessed during enrolment and the pre-training review, and is granted when the student provides the academic transcript or Statement of Attainment for the unit/s of competency they are seeking to transfer.

The successful application of CT will decrease the length of this qualification.

Assessment

Assessment requires achievement across all tasks to demonstrate competence. Students are required to complete a range of tasks as part of the assessment requirements for each unit. The unit outline contains detailed information of the specific assessments tasks to be completed by students.

Students complete formative assessments if required for the unit. These tasks are marked by an assessor and feedback is provided to the student regarding progress and readiness for summative assessment.

Summative assessment approaches are undertaken as post training events that include the collection of knowledge and performance evidence from the student at a unit of competency level.

Diversitat Training will ensure that assessment materials and methods used by the trainer/assessor will collect evidence against the endorsed unit of competency.  The assessor will ensure evidence collected is:

  • Authentic (the student’s own work)
  • Valid (directly related to the current version of the relevant endorsed unit of competency)
  • Current (reflects the student’s current capacity to perform the aspect of the work covered by the endorsed unit of competency), and
  • Sufficient (covers the full range of elements in the relevant unit of competency and addresses the four dimensions of competency, namely task skills, task management skills, contingency management skills, and job/role environment skills).

A variety of assessment techniques are used in the assessment of competence for this program:

  • Oral/Written questions based on theory and knowledge requirements
  • Observation / Demonstration/Simulation of practical skills
  • Project
  • Portfolio

Students are provided with assessment materials for every assessment task they undertake. The assessment tools include information needed for the students to complete their assessments including:

  • duration/due date,
  • context and conditions of assessment,
  • instructional information required to complete the tasks
  • an outline of evidence to be submitted
  • marking and submission information.

Assessor versions of assessment tools are available for assessors, which include model answers, assessment instructions and decision-making information.

Students are given individual feedback on the outcomes of each assessment they undertake. If a student is found to be Not Yet Competent (NYC) they will:

  • receive feedback from the trainer indicating areas of concern
  • be offered the opportunity to resubmit their assessments as soon as is practical provided they have a satisfactory attendance record, or they may be required to undertake further training prior to re-assessment.

Students are entitled to three assessment attempts for each assessment task within a module enrolment period.

Cumulative assessment records are kept to monitor student progression.

Trainers and Assessors are required to follow Diversitat Training policy and procedures to record results and to collect and store evidence. Completed assessments are retained for 6 months and assessment results are retained for 30 years as per ASQA data provision and retention of assessment requirements.
