 L&D9DI – Assessment using Direct & Indirect Methods

The Workplace Assessor Award is a unit of accreditation. This Unit is for individuals who assess in the workplace using a wide range of assessment methods, both direct and indirect.

There are no minimum educational requirements for entry to the award, however, each candidate must have access to two people who are working towards their qualifications in the workplace.

The person wishing to achieve this unit (the assessor candidate) will use the following direct methods: observation, examination of work products (both created and not created at the time of observation) and questioning.

They may also be involved in authenticating indirect evidence such as: discussion with candidates, testimony of others (witnesses), examining candidate statements, assessing candidates in simulated environments, and Recognising Prior Learning (RPL).
