Credits: 15

What do assessors do?

  • 1. Assessors examine to see to what extent an individual has mastered a given field of learning.
  • 2. Assessors evaluate or test a candidate’s performance and knowledge against pre set documents (called unit standards) and then make a finding.

Assessors may award (certify/certificate) candidates with unit standards or qualifications that have been achieved.

Assessors help map out plans which would lead candidates to be able to achieve competence.

Is there work for assessors?

Employers hiring a training person will ask:  “Are you an assessor?”

Employers who train people depend on assessors to verify if learning milestones have been achieved or not. Assessors can be freelanced.

If you train people, you can take the next step and assess them against unit standards and qualifications.

Why train with us?

Our delegates respond positively to our adult learning methods. We have found ways to make the learning easy, memorable yet thorough. This is what learners say after the course: “Practical, fun, stimulating, understandable, opened a whole new world to me”

Can I assess anybody on anything?

No. You need to be knowledgeable about the area you are assessing others in. Assessors mostly are able to assess widely across various disciplines, but they would have mastered those fields for themselves first.

What if an assessor judges wrongly?

This could happen, but there are safeguards.  For all subjects, there are ideal answers (model answers) and assessors use these as benchmarks for making decisions.

Assessors also have their work examined by moderators who ensure assessments are sound.

Learners also have the right to appeal negative a result and the assessor will be assisted by other assessors or moderators to ensure a fair decision.
