Purpose Specifications and Data Collection

In general, you can browse the PROSPECT Awards website without disclosing any information about yourself. If you visit the PROSPECT Awards website to read or download information, we collect and store only the following information that is automatically recognised: the date and time, the originating IP address, the domain name, the type of browser and operating system used (if provided by the browser), the URL of the referring page (if provided by the browser), the object requested and the completion status of the request.

Cookies and Other Technologies

As described above, we sometimes collect anonymous information from visits to our site to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit and we also measure visitor activity on the PROSPECT Awards website, but we do so in ways that keep information anonymous. We use the information that we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different areas of our site, and to help us make the site more useful to visitors. This includes analysing these logs periodically to measure the traffic through our servers, the number of pages visited and the level of demand for pages and topics of interest.

We collect the anonymous information we mentioned above through the use of various technologies, one of which is called “cookies”. A cookie is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive. For example, on a website with a login system (if users register for it), cookies are used to save the visitor’s password so that it does not have to be entered at each new visit.

This anonymous information is used and analysed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns. None of this information is reviewed at an individual level. If you do not want any transaction details used in this manner, you can disable your cookies.

Assessment

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.
