Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to analyse a range of technology-enabled assessment (e-assessment) options that are available for the design, delivery and administration of required assessment activities in an educational work group. It develops the advanced theoretical and technical knowledge required to evaluate e-assessment processes that they are fair, flexible, valid and reliable.

The unit provides guidelines for generating e-assessment strategies for diagnostic, formative and summative assessments.

It applies to teachers, trainers, educators and facilitators who analyse, implement, manage and evaluate the application of e-assessment processes that are fair, flexible, valid and reliable.

The unit is relevant to a range of assessment activities in small, medium or large organisations, and for individuals, groups and organisations.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
