provides consistent outcomes. The reliability of assessment is enhanced when assessors: Are highly skilled and monitor and review one another’s assessment processes, methods and tools provide complete assessment tools including clear instructions (in learner language) for learners and for other assessors, and sample responses Trial assessment tools before use and review assessment tools following use Collect evidence via different assessment methods Collect evidence across different locations and times Flexibility : Ensuring the skills and knowledge can be demonstrated in a variety of ways suitable to the workplace.

An appeal process and confidentiality need to be provided for.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
