An introduction to assessment for assessors who are new or who require an update on assessment methodology and perspectives as we employ them at Prospect Awards. In this session, we look at assessment, effective assessment and evidence. We examine different types of evidence and how they can be effective for different purposes. We look at some issues regarding individual and group-generated evidence and how different types of evidence can be useful within a learner portfolio. We also look at using an example of how On-Line e-assessment can be used for some learners and we show who you can access that via Prospect Awards.
