Assessment in CBET.

Day 4

Assessment
Is a process of judging competence of an individual against the prescribed standards. It is the process of collecting evidence about performance of a trainee with the purpose of determining whether he/she is competent to do a particular working activity or not yet.

Why do we assess?
Among the characteristic features of CBET is that progress is made if preceded module or unit has been mastered. Therefore CBET calls for both Continuous assessments (Formative) and Final assessment (Summative)

Formative Assessment
Provide feedback to trainees since assessment results can be viewed as an incentive to learning. (Good results and constructive criticism on ones weakness increase self esteem to learn towards achieving and demonstrating standard competencies.)

Formative Assessmentcontd

Determine whether learner can progress to the next unit. Help for evaluation of the programme for reviewing purposes. Helps for evaluation of teaching and learning methods of delivery.

Summative Assessment
Helps to validate trainees occupational competencies It is the basis of certification Helps to validate teachers performance.

Assessment Plan

Assessment Plancontd

The number of units within each module and the length of each, subject to the constraints of the total learners workload and total budget. Submissions in each unit are to be designated as summative and which, if any shall be formative. Arrange for review and feedback session

Assessment records
