PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD
This generic assessor unit standard is for those who assess people for their achievement of learning outcomes in terms of specified criteria using pre-designed assessment instruments. The outcomes and criteria may be defined in a range of documents including but not limited to unit standards, exit level outcomes, assessment standards, curriculum statements and qualifications.

Those who achieve this unit standard will be able to conduct assessments within their fields of expertise. This unit standard will contribute towards the achievement of a variety of qualifications, particularly within the fields of Education Training and Development Practices and Human Resource Development.

People credited with this unit standard are able to carry out assessments in a fair, valid, reliable and practicable manner that is free of all bias and discrimination, paying particular attention to the three groups targeted for redress: race, gender and disability.

In particular, people credited with this unit standard will be able to:
Demonstrate understanding of outcomes-based assessment;
Prepare for assessments;
Conduct assessments;
Provide feedback on assessments; and
Review assessments.

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING
The credit calculation is based on the assumption that those starting to learn towards this unit standard have no previous assessment experience. It is assumed, though, that the candidate-assessors have evaluative expertise within the area of learning in which they intend to assess (see Definition of Terms for a definition of “evaluative expertise”).

UNIT STANDARD RANGE
1. This generic assessment unit standard applies to assessment in all fields of learning. However, it is expected that assessments will be contextualised to meet the requirements of different contexts.

2. Assessment of candidate-assessors will only be valid for award of this unit standard if the following requirements are met:
Assessments carried out by the candidate-assessor are in relation to significant, meaningful and coherent outcome statements that include criteria for assessment purposes, and allow for judgements of competence in line with SAQA’s definition of competence i.e. embrace foundational, practical and reflexive dimensions of competence. Outcomes that are highly task-orientated and do not demand much, if any, in the way of reflexive competence, will not be sufficient for measuring competence as an assessor in terms of this unit standard. It is important that candidate-assessors select outcomes that enable them to meet the requirement laid out here.
The candidate-assessor demonstrates repeatability by carrying out at least two assessments :
– One of which may be a simulated assessment (in order to cover a range of typical assessment situations), and
– At least one of which must involve a real candidate in a real assessment situation, preferably under the guidance of a mentor.
The assessments may involve two or more candidates in relation to the same outcome.
Candidate-assessors produce evidence that they can conduct assessments in RPL situations and for candidates who may have fairly recently acquired the necessary knowledge and skills through courses or learning programmes. However, candidate assessors do not need to carry out both kinds of assessments in practice for the award of this unit standard. Should candidate-assessors carry out an RPL-related assessment for the purposes of this unit standard, then it is sufficient for them to show how they might have conducted the assessment differently had it been an assessment linked to recent learning, and vice versa.

3. For the purposes of assessment against this unit standard, candidate-assessors should have access to Assessment Guides and will not be expected to design assessments. (See Definition of Terms for a definition of Assessment Guides). Candidate assessors will be expected to interpret the standards at hand in order to ensure their assessment judgements are in accordance with the requirements of the standard. In cases where Assessment Guides are not available, providers should seek ways to make such guides available for the purposes of this assessment. Where candidate-assessor also intend to design assessments, then providers are encouraged to integrate the learning and assessment of the unit standards:
Conduct outcomes-based assessments
Design and develop outcomes-based assessments

4. Candidate-assessors should have access to organisational assessment policies, procedures and systems (including moderation). It is assumed the organisational policies and procedures are of a quality sufficient for accreditation purposes. Where such policies and procedures are not yet available, the provider may make general policies and procedures available for the purposes of this assessment.

Further range statements are provided in the body of the unit standard where they apply to particular specific outcomes or assessment criteria.

Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria:

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1
Demonstrate understanding of outcomes-based assessment.

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 2
Prepare for assessments.

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 3
Conduct assessments.

SPECIFIC OUTCOME 4
Provide feedback on assessments.

What is verification?

Verification is a process of validating learner achievements and ensuring compliance to SAQA certification criteria. It is a means of ensuring that two or more providers delivering the same unit standards and/or qualifications are assessing and moderating consistently to the same standard, using valid and approved assessment instruments, and meeting the national standard as registered on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). Verification is sometimes referred to as “external moderation”.

During the course of verification the verifier checks on the processes and procedures used by the assessor and moderator while at the same time verifying the provider’s adherence to quality management principles in relation to training, assessment and moderation. The onus is on the provider to ensure compliance with legislative requirements for the assessment, moderation, verification and certification of learners and to ensure all unit standards and qualifications being used are up to date and current.

Verification is a means of checking and validating the accuracy of information on learner results before certification of results is authorised. Verification of learner achievements for individual unit standards and full qualifications is conducted and managed by the various Sector Education and Training Authorities (SETA’s).
During verification a provider will be required to produce some quality management documents or other forms of evidence as a means of verification of the information provided.

The verification may differ between SETA’s but will usually include the following

    Review, evaluate and verify the implementation of policies and procedures

 

    Evaluate implementation by comparing actual evidence provided to ensure it meets the requirements of the rules of evidence

 

    Review and evaluate moderation and assessment policies and procedures

 

    Ensure the assessment instruments meet the unit standards and/or qualification outcomes and assessment criteria as originally approved by the ETQA

 

    Check on the delivery mode and notional hours

 

    Ensure entry level requirements are met and adhered

 

    Verify process of integration and that rules of combination are applied

 

    Validate the assessment decisions against the evidence requirements

 

    Check on the validity and currency of assessor and moderator registration

 

    Check on learner registrations and sufficiency of learner records

 

    Observe assessment and moderation where and when applicable

 

    Review and evaluate record systems

The SETA’s appoint registered constituent verifiers to conduct verifications on their behalf. The verifier will normally conduct the verification visit at the provider’s premises. During this visit the verifier will want to have access to all completed assessments and or POE’s for all learners assessed and not just those who have been moderated. The verifier may do spot checks to ensure compliance and not just check those POE’s moderated. In addition the verifier will require access to various quality management documents and systems as outlined previously.

The SETA’s have a responsibility to ensure the verification is conducted within an acceptable time period and without unnecessary delays. Similarly the certification window should be opened as soon as possible following receipt of the verification report so that final results of all learner achievements can be uploaded and recorded. In this regard the provider must ensure that only results for learners included in the verification report are uploaded.
In this regard the SETA’s must ensure the have systems in place to upload endorsed learner achievements for qualifications to the National Learner Record Database (NLRD) at the intervals stipulated by SAQA.

In addition to conducting the verification the verifier carries a responsibility to provide support to providers where necessary. The support given should be both constructive and developmental and negative feedback should be avoided at all costs.

Verification is intended to be constructive and every effort must be made by verifiers to ensure open communication in relation to all aspects of the verification. Where problems are identified the verifier should discuss these with the provider and where possible propose possible solutions. The provider should feel comfortable enough to be able to discuss any problems or areas of concern with the verifier.

Verification should be seen to be developmental, especially in regard to emerging and Small Medium Micro Enterprise providers (SMME), who should be given advice and an opportunity to improve. For this reason verifiers should be qualified as such and should be in a position to offer such advice where necessary.
Following a verification visit the verifier will make a recommendation to the SETA to either endorse the learner results without conditions or to endorse with conditions which may need to be met by a specific date. The alternative decision of the verifier is not to endorse the learner results.
On completion of the verification visit the provider will be issued with a full report and feedback and this should include informing the provider of his or her right to appeal should he or she be unhappy with the outcome.

The verification may differ between SETA’s but will usually include the following

    Review, evaluate and verify the implementation of policies and procedures

 

    Evaluate implementation by comparing actual evidence provided to ensure it meets the requirements of the rules of evidence

 

    Review and evaluate moderation and assessment policies and procedures

 

    Ensure the assessment instruments meet the unit standards and/or qualification outcomes and assessment criteria as originally approved by the ETQA

 

    Check on the delivery mode and notional hours

 

    Ensure entry level requirements are met and adhered

 

    Verify process of integration and that rules of combination are applied

 

    Validate the assessment decisions against the evidence requirements

 

    Check on the validity and currency of assessor and moderator registration

 

    Check on learner registrations and sufficiency of learner records

 

    Observe assessment and moderation where and when applicable

 

    Review and evaluate record systems

The SETA’s appoint registered constituent verifiers to conduct verifications on their behalf. The verifier will normally conduct the verification visit at the provider’s premises. During this visit the verifier will want to have access to all completed assessments and or POE’s for all learners assessed and not just those who have been moderated. The verifier may do spot checks to ensure compliance and not just check those POE’s moderated. In addition the verifier will require access to various quality management documents and systems as outlined previously.

The SETA’s have a responsibility to ensure the verification is conducted within an acceptable time period and without unnecessary delays. Similarly the certification window should be opened as soon as possible following receipt of the verification report so that final results of all learner achievements can be uploaded and recorded. In this regard the provider must ensure that only results for learners included in the verification report are uploaded.
In this regard the SETA’s must ensure the have systems in place to upload endorsed learner achievements for qualifications to the National Learner Record Database (NLRD) at the intervals stipulated by SAQA.

In addition to conducting the verification the verifier carries a responsibility to provide support to providers where necessary. The support given should be both constructive and developmental and negative feedback should be avoided at all costs.

Verification is intended to be constructive and every effort must be made by verifiers to ensure open communication in relation to all aspects of the verification. Where problems are identified the verifier should discuss these with the provider and where possible propose possible solutions. The provider should feel comfortable enough to be able to discuss any problems or areas of concern with the verifier.

Verification should be seen to be developmental, especially in regard to emerging and Small Medium Micro Enterprise providers (SMME), who should be given advice and an opportunity to improve. For this reason verifiers should be qualified as such and should be in a position to offer such advice where necessary.
Following a verification visit the verifier will make a recommendation to the SETA to either endorse the learner results without conditions or to endorse with conditions which may need to be met by a specific date. The alternative decision of the verifier is not to endorse the learner results.
On completion of the verification visit the provider will be issued with a full report and feedback and this should include informing the provider of his or her right to appeal should he or she be unhappy with the outcome.

  • Management review
  • Authorization of affiliates
  • Tutor selection, training and performance review
  • Issuance of training certificates
  • Learner Support
  • Delivery, Assessment and Moderation practices

NOTE: There are basically two different types of accreditation:

  1. The training provider or the institute must be accredited by a SETA. “ETQA” (Their offices, policies and procedures. This can be any SETA = does not matter what type of courses they offer.)
  2. Each learning programme or qualification is accredited with the relevant SETA “ETQA” who is responsible for this programme. Also note that the word “accreditation” does not mean they SETA accredited. It must say “NQF Accredited”.

  • Are there any additional fees for support to re-submission?
  • Entry Requirements? Do you charge for registration and why?
  • What discount can I get if I do more courses with your institute?
