Keys to Assessment - your ‘guide’ to the Training Package Assessment Materials Guides

These are a suite of ten guides developed in the Training Package Assessment Materials Project. The project was one of several initiatives funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Science and Training (DEST) to facilitate the implementation of Training Packages.

The guides in this Training Package Assessment Materials Project aim to provide assessors and managers of assessment processes within the vocational education and training (VET) sector with a range of practical tools and resources for improving assessment practices in both on – and off-the-job situations.
Each of the ten guides focuses on a particular topic or aspect of assessment.

But where to begin? So much information, so many templates, case studies and lots of explanatory examples to support designing and conducting assessment! The solution? A cross indexed resource. Read on!

Keys to AssessmentUnlocking assessment resources was developed by TAFE NSW as 'a guide to the Guides' to help trainers and assessors access information about particular assessment topics quickly.
