Evaluate different techniques for sampling evidence of assessment, including use of technology.

There are a wide variety of techniques for sampling evidence of assessment all valuable for different reasons.

Records play a huge part in the sampling process and are often evidence from both the assessor and learner, often planned together, agreed and jointly signed to further validate. Any form of recorded information would be designed to link together to form a full picture of a learner’s journey and the evidence collected to complete a qualification in full following awarding bodies’ criteria.
Within ESG we use participation and progression reviews to reflect, evaluate and plan each visit in a learner’s journey, these are tri part and allow the assessor, learner and employer full participation in planning learning and tracking progress within the learner’s journey.
To support the PPRs we use many more recorded documents
• Learning Delivery plans,
• Portfolios
• Log Books
• Consultation sheets
• Action Plans and Assessment Reports
• Appeals procedure
• Witness Statement’s
• Tests result papers, Oral question records and assignments
• Trackers

Quality Assurer’s will use a variety of different practice to maintain the quality of assessment and a high standard within the company.

Examples of these practices are:

• Graded observations
• Standardisation
• Sampling
• One to One support
• Team meetings
• Shadowing
• Sharing of best practice and ideas
By using a variety of practice the Quality Assurance team can identify strengths and weaknesses within the team or in individuals and provide support where needed.
